Question about Chrysler Voyager
I have a 2000 chrysler voyager which i have never had a problem with, recently my electric window wouldnt go back up for a while, then my radio went off and came back on later the same day then my speedo didnt work but all my other dash components were ok, for the last couple of weeks when ive tried to start it sometimes the starter just clicks and wont turn the engine and it has to be bump started. it doesnt have a regular pattern some days it doesnt do it, some days it does, it doesnt matter if ive driven 50km or 1km. i have had the usual alternator checks, battery checks and starter all come back ok. i have been told its an intermittent battery drain by a student auto electrician, its the battery by the rac and its the alternator by a mechanic. i am at a loss as to what to do as until i know what the problem is i cannot afford to guess any advice please.

if battery is ok and new starter installed then the problem would be your spark plugs or your fuel pump...If It's not getting fuel to the carb make sure there is pressure in the needle valve on the fuel regulator.

What do you mean by bump started? The lights and radio can work, but the battery may be too weak to crank the engine over. The best thing to do would be to drive it to a parts store, where most offer free check of battery and charging system (if you can drive it. If not, 1st remove battery and bring in for testing). The click you hear is classic low battery symptom, although it can be other things. So, 1st get the free test, and post results back here. How old is the battery? (and answer 2 questions!) Thanks

The Aternator is what charges the battery..I think your friend is correct. It shouldn't be more then 225 for parts and labor if so go to another mechanic. Mechanic's tipically charge 50-60 dollars an hour and it shouldn't take any longer then that. And you can buy an alternator for 175...Good Luck!

anti-theft is what you want to start with. if its not the basics of loose wires to fuel pump, starter, battery, injectors/computer, or fuse blocks.

Ok then, from your description and the
make/model/year of the car you have there,
it appears you've reset the VATS.
The car's security immobilizer
reader at the key switch
does not recognize the coded
chip in the ignition key any longer.
You can try to put the key
in the ignition, turn to the on position &
wait at least 10 min like that.
(Do not turn off the key switch before
10 minutes as elapsed!)
Once done, the key is re-programmed and
should allow the fuel injectors to work again.
The car would start now if corrected.
In some cases, the VATS (GM'S VEHICLE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM)
will re learn the code this way, and will then
allow the restart, however if this does not work,
then you can simply tow it to any GM vehicle dealer
to have the service department re code it.
There is a permanent solution though.
Adding the PLJX Self learning Bypass module (59.95)
will bypass the PASSLOCK system in your vehicle
for good. See this at www.PASSLOCK2.com
Good luck I hope method 1 does the trick!
Here is the 30 min relearn:
Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.
