1999 Caravan Electrical Issue

Our 99 Caravan 3.3 starts, or not, randomly. The battery is strong and cranks the engine well when it fires. Other times when the key is turned we only get a clicking sound. If we try it 3,4, or more times, it will start. Any ideas?

Sounds like a poor connection on the battery. Check the posts (take off, clean, etc). If that doesn't work get you battery tested.

I changed the starter and it still will not start


Can you tell us what happens when you try to start it? Is there any noise at all? If there is no noise (no cranking) be sure you:
1. Have a strong battery (this is the most common issue). Your battery may seem like it has power because it will light the lights/radio etc. but that doesn't mean it has enough juice to crank the engine. Try a jump start with a known good battery and see if it starts. If it does, you need a new battery. Once you have verified your battery is good be sure to verify that your alternator is working correctly. You should have at least 14.5v at the battery when the engine is running
2. Check all your fuses
3. Verify you are getting 12v at the starter when you try to start it. If not, then there is an electrical issue somewhere between the ignition switch and the starter.

Won't turn over


Even though all your other electrical bits are working it could be that your battery doesn't have enough juice to crank the engine. It doesn't take much power to run the radio, lights, etc, but cranking the engine requires the battery to have a very strong charge. If your battery is more than 5 years old, that's very likely the issue. I'd start there. Also, be sure to check the battery terminals and ground for corrosion and clean if necessary. If replacing the battery doesn't solve the problem it could be the starter solenoid or a loose electrical connection somewhere.

V6 ? 4CYL? Have you verified SPARK? Did anyone check the "fuel pump inertia switch?" Its in the right front kick panel. If it was a "Anti-theft Issue" the light would be on or flashing.
