Hey Everyone,
It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything, I have been working overseas, and I got home the other day and I went to take the snake out for a drive to the gym, and just like the title says, she cranks, but won't start. She has 10,500 miles on her, and she sits with a trickle charger on her. I THINK it an electrical/ignition problem, hoping some Snake gurus could point me in the right direction. She only gets driven about once a month when I'm in town.
Thanks,
MI Viper

I would 1st check the fuses under the hood. Might just be a fuel pump fuse.

h50,
thanks for the reply, worked a little more on her this am:
1. I smell fuel, when I crank on her, so I'm, pretty sure it not a fuel delivery problem. I've pulled fuse # B14 "ASD" per some of my search results, it ohm ck'd good, I then pulled all the Ks and the fuses, and just re-seated them, for a fresh connection for all the contact points in the fuse box: Crank, No Start, (CNS). Tried WOT start method: CNS, Disconnected the red battery lead for 3-5 minutes, CNS... I'll be back working on her this afternoon.
Tx everyone for reading

Well, she's running, I read thru my Dodge Viper shop manual, and decided to swap the Horn and headlight power relays with the ASD1/2 relays, and she started. I swapped the relays back to their original positions, and she fired right up again. I drove her on the highway for about 30 minutes, she seems good to go, still no codes either
