Question about 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan
When I turn the key the engine does not turn over. The starter does not even work. It may start after the second or third time. It seems to do this when the car is cold.
You should first check the battery connections, the ground connection from the battery to the engine block, and also the connections to the starter motor (on the lower front of the engine). If these are all good, it is most likely the starter that is bad. There are contacts inside the starter relay get burned and warn and do not always contact well. If you repeatedly attempt to start, the crusty burned contacts will eventually make contact. The only solution is to replace the starter. It is not a very difficult think to replace if you have the proper size combination wrench. It is somewhat of a knuckle-buster. This problem occured on my 99 Caravan at 110,000 miles and then mysteriously went away and then came back at 125,000 miles. Replacing starter fixed it. It cost around $100 at AutoZone for the new starter.

Low voltage to the starter not enough power to the starter it could be the battery. So get tested at some auto shop or those auto zone.
