In my 1999 dodge caravan the ignition only turns the engine over after repeated attempts.


Sounds to me like the ignition switch itself. If there is no click or absolutely nothing and after several key turns it will work then the ignition switch itself is going bad. I'm not positive if this vehicle has a security key. If it does try another key if have more than 1 for the vehicle or get a replacement key. The ignition switch will either need replaced or could be the switch no longer able to read the security key if it has one.

A few problems with my 92 buick regal. 1. Doesn't always start on the first try and I have to give it some gas when I turn the key. 2. Courtesy lights and chime won't turn off when key is ou


The no start on the first try could be low fuel pressure. The check valve in the pump may be letting fuel drain back into the tank, or the pump relay may be bad. The pump gets power from the relay when you turn the key on, then from the oil pressure switch once the engine starts.
How do you get the interior lights to go off ?

My car doesn't start but the battery is fine. The engine fuses are fine. There is no fuel going into the engine. What could the problem be? I already replaced the fuel pump. my car is 96 Dodge grand...


put a funnel in the gas nozzle have someone turn ignition on to almost start, but don't. You should hear pump running before you start your van if you don't hear the pump you know you have a defective pump if you hear the pump purchase a fuel filter try that if not possibly could the relay not sure where its at but could finds out for you.good luck

When hooking up both battery post the starter turns over without turning over the ignition switch


You either have a faulty Solenoid or short or what I would check first is the ignition switch. Pull the ignition switch off and then connect the Battery, if the problem repeats then you have a short you need to look for, if it doesn't you will have to replace the ignition switch. There is a slim chance that this is a relay problem in the power Distribution box with a relay being stuck open but again, remove the ignition relay and see if the problem persist, if it doesn't replace the relay and you should be fixed. I would start with the ignition switch though.

1997 caravan 3.0. van quit while driving. cranks but no start. found blown 20 amp engine fuse. replaced fuse, which immidiately blew when ignition switch turned on. found no loose cables or connections....


Bad ignition switch? Maybe? I have the same problem and I'm going to replace the ignition switch today before I start trying to trace electrical issues (which could be anything and take forever).. Hoping the switch is the fix...
