Default No spark

Test the coil pack. Resistance from 1 to 4 and 2 to 3 is good. Tested plug from harness with a light tester. On center wire light bright and steady. On one outside wire no light at all and on the other dim and steady. This is with the coil pack unplugged. Not sure if cam or crank sensor. Any ideals, any help as where to go from here? Only code I am getting is a barometric out of range.

If no spark related engine trouble codes I would suggest taking the camshaft sensor off, crank the engine and see if the camshaft is turning.

check to see if you have injector pulse, if it don't,then it should be a defective crank sensor, if you buy one, buy a OEM, the aftermarkets don't work on the Chrysler products too well
