Question about 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

Difficulty starting Replaced battery in June '08 a few weeks later an intermittent problem started where at times when the key is turned it just clicks like battery is dead. Turn key 4 or 5 times and it starts. Friend said it might be the "cyllanoid" (sp?). Does that sound like what it might be and if so is the cyllanoid and the starter encased on this model or is it separate where we can just replace the cyllanoid? Thanks, I have 3 kids and don't want to get stranded.

It is not the solenoid. This issue is usually caused by a weak connection. Can you move the cable terminals on your battery by pulling on the cables? That should not happen. Tighten the terminals.

SOURCE: Let's see if there is really a diagnostic expert

The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!

Check along fender area under hood for relay clicking. Should be a few of them that look the same. Hold your finger on each while someone turns key to make it click. That's the starter relay, may be faulty. Double check numbers on it with others by it and you may find some or one the same to test it.

Honestly, it sounds like starter and battery... It may be worth your efforts to verify the connectors have been cleaned and free of debris. Double check to make sure they are tight.

Also, you could take the starter in and have it bench tested to make sure it is engaging (it did not sound like it was). Most parts stores will do this for free, especially the one where you bought it... Have been down that road a few times, after assuming the brand new part was in working order...

However If you're sure these are up to par, you may want to have a look into your fuses...
Yes the one that says Ignition would be the most affordable path to begin with. Atleast pull them, and check. You may have more than one fuse for this. And many of todays cars have more than one bank of fuses... My Car has fuses panels in three locations.

If you dont have the Owners manual (although some wont mention this.) Visit a local library and view the haynes or chiltons manual in the reference section. They will allow you to make copies of the pages you need. At a minimum, this can quickly help you find the other fuse panel locations while saving your back and neck from getting any unneeded kinks. Of course they will also contain the trouble shooting pages which may provide you other sources as culprits to this situation.

Hoping you find this useful

Good Luck and Happy Motoring

Intermittent electrical problems are the worst to diagnose.
One thing you have not replaced yet is the key switch.
I would run a wire to the starter solenoid terminal that has the wire from the key switch and have a meter ready for the next time it fails to crank.
If you have no voltage on that terminal it may be the key switch. You can also jumper that wire to battery power to see if it will crank by putting power directly to the starter solenoid.
I am assuming the security light is not on when the problem occurs.

Usually a sign of something draining the battery.
The machine test probably showed the battery could hold a charge and the alternator was charging the battery.
You may need to have someone check for a power drain.
When the key switch is off, there may be a weak short to ground or a relay or component that is using power.

the symtoms you describe sounds like a battery fault. but if you have had the battery properley tested and is good then you either have something discharging the battery intermittantly ie. trunk light staying on or a high resistance in the main battery leads or earth connections

Chrysler Intermittent Starting Problem

I have the same problem with my 2004 Chrsyler Concorde, however mine didn't start doing this until a recall involving reprogramming the cam shaft sensor was done. But I have exact same issues and no trouble codes appear for dealer either. My guess is that it is the cam shaft sensor, which I am going to get replaced. If you solve yours first, please post and let me know.

2006 Jeep Wrangler won't start

First, make sure you can turn the engine by hand. If you can't then the starter can't turn it either. Have someone else turn the key and look for the source of the click...may be a relay. Go over the starting circuit with a volt meter. Check for power at the starter main terminal and then with the key turned to "start" check for power at the trigger terminal on the starter. Check battery voltage and check relay operation.
You have a neutral safety switch on the transmission if its an automatic and a clutch switch if it's a stick. Check them as well. Make sure battery grounding on fender and block are also clean and secure.

Car won't is only 1 1/2 years old

When you say "won't start" do you mean the starter engages and the engine won't catch or do you mean silence when you turn the key like a completely dead battery? I had a recurring problem with silence and it turned out to be a battery cable going bad intermittently. Replaced both cables and never happened again.
