Question about 1998 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

98 Voyager 3.3l Wont start

Our 98 voyager just can't hold a charge. We are on our 3rd battery since the problem started. Sometimes we have to play with the ingnition to get it to work. Almost every time we must jumpstart it for it to start and it sometimes makes a click when we start it but other times its just dies after we turn it off. It gets worse in cold weather.
Everything seems normal under the hood (just by glancing at it) and it works fine when it is started.

Sounds like you have a parasitic loss somewhere in the electrical system. There is a component that is staying on after you leave the car and it drains the battery.The way to check for this is to get yourself a 12 volt test light from an auto parts store.Pull the fuse for your radio if it has a digital display. Under the hood disconnect the positive battery terminal from the battery.Put the clamp end of the test light to the battery terminal and the other end to the post. If there is a drain the light will be lit.Leave it for ten minutes and see if it is still lit.This allows for things that time out. If it is still on start pulling fuses and have a buddy tell you if the light stays on or goes off. If it goes off, identify what that fuse controls. You will need to pin down the circuit in that area that is causing the problem after that. Keep in mind that one of the worst offenders for this is the rear dome light being left on. That is the first thing I check.

Sounds like your battery might need changing. However, I would try cleaning the battery terminals first then try charging the battery and see if it will start for you... Hope it helps...

I have a 98 PLymouth Voyager. It won't start. There is a good battery in there. The engine won't turn over??


How did you confirm battery is good. Just because lights etc, work is not a valid test. Lights and other accessories draw minimal amps, whereas starter draws 100s of amps. Try jump starting it and if that works, have your battery "load tested" at any good local auto parts store (they do this for FREE) I suspect your battery is "tired" and no longer holding a charge (enough to start car) Very common problem when batteries age,

This is because it is one of your main relay is bad. It is also part of the circuit that your starter is on.
This fuse panel is under the hood just to the left of the battery.

You have a shorted engine harness, this is not common but it does happen, heat and engine movement cause damage to the harness, this is most common on hi miler cars and vans, the only way to fix it is to start by looking anywhere the harness rubs, that is where the damage occurs.
