When i try to start the van i only get a click sound


I would think your battery could be dead. try jumpstarting from a jumper box or another vehicle or better yet put battery on charger for a few hours.
Also check both + and - connections and be sure they are not corroded and are getting good contact. If after this you still get only clicking sound I would think that starter needs replacing.

I have a 1996 Dodge grand Caravan 3.3L 6 clyder and i put a new fuel pump in it and it was starting with a little jumping when it runs. i let it sit over night til about 6 in the morning and about to go to...


It sounds like a starter to me, the starter does funny things, it will get to the point when even jumping it like you did wont work anymore, there is a dead spot in it, even jumping the van will make it start sometimes, this is a bad starter,Make sure your battery connections are clean and tight and connections on the starter are the same clean and tight and if so then replace the starter.i have had them removed and tested and the would run and test good but were bad, good day.

Van wont start. no power


Maybe the starter or starter solenoid is bad. First, make sure connections at battery and starter are clean and tight. Old school method: turn headlights on, and (if good and bright) observe them while someone turns key to crank. If they dim noticeably and starter makes no sound, likely the starter has failed. If you observe no difference in headlight strength, then likely the starting circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is not working. You could take the wire off starter solenoid and see if it has power there while key is in crank position. If you do have power there, starter needs to be tested, or the solenoid is bad. If no power to the solenoid when cranking, then the circuit from the ignition switch to the solenoid will need diagnosing. Your neutral safety switch, and possibly a starter relay is in that circuit before it reaches the solenoid.
Good luck.

Van wont start


Just maybe the battery and alt were good. You did test them,before replacing didn't you? How about the starter solenoid,starter or ground connections or cables with too much resistance. Do a voltage drop test, on all grounds, you can get to.

Van will not start.


Sounds like it's time for a new starter. Before you go and buy a new one, check the connection to your starter for corrosion. Good luck

2000 Silhouette Battery Problems...Maybe


It sounds like your starter failed, more specifically your starter solenoid. But it is mounted right to the starter and sold together as a package deal. Most auto part stores can test these if you take the starter to them. Another quick check you can do is to turn on the headlights and try to start the van, if the lights do not dim, that is another good indication the starter failed. If the lights were to dim a lot it could mean its time to look at the battery, but from what you describe, I'm 99% sure its starter. Expect to pay probably 100-150 dollars for it. (P.S. whoever takes the starter off, make sure to disconnect negative battery cable from battery first or sparks may fly)
