Question about 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager
I have had problems with intermittent starting for the past 2 weeks. Took to autozone and they said the battery was bad. replaced battery and having the same problem. It was suggested to check the connections at the starter, however after looking at the positive terminal and trying to follow to the wiring It gets lost. Where exactly should I be looking to find the starter? Sometimes it will start like normal and other times I just hear one click sound and after repeating it will fire up.
(check water/ antifreeze level first, make sure it's full, low water can cause it not to heat properly) it could possibly be either the thermostat- fairly cheap and easy to fix, great for DIY's- if that doesn't fix it, it could be heater core.

THERE ARE A COUPLE DIFFERENCES. IT'S ALL IN THE OPTIONS PACKAGE. GRANDS ARE JUST SLIGHTLY LONGER, THEY HAVE DIFFERENT MOTOR SIZES AND DIFFERENT OPTIONS PACKAGE.

I assume you've checked all connections from the battery and starter to make sure they are clean and tight. It is a little weird that you do not have trouble starting in neutral yet you get a clicking sound in park. My first thought would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission but you shouldn't even get a click in park if that is bad.
One possibility is the contacts in your starter have worn down and are causing too more resistance (explains the clicking). At the back of your starter is a metal cover that is held on by three tiny bolts (6mm). Disconnect the battery first! (You might have to remove the starter to get to this part) Remove this cover and pull out the plunger assembly. Underneath are two brass plates. Compare one plate to the other. If one is noticeably thinner then it could be the cause of the clicking. You will even see a round groove in the plate. You can buy the plunger and contacts from this website: http://www.nationsautoelectric.com/densoparts.html or you can opt to get a starter from your friendly auto parts store. The first picture shows the bad contact on the left. Notice the groove, the metal has become really thin there. This picture shows a pitted plunger assembly. Always good to replace it too.This picture shows all the new parts installed.

Thoroughly check the battery to chassis to engine ground system is properly connected and in good order.
Check/replace any solenoid control relay if fitted -(slave relay interfacing between ignition start sw and starter motor engage solenoid).
Check condition and connections of any fusible link (or in line Maxifuse).
