Dont take carb off, drain fuel from tank if you got bad gas, fill with good gas, pull fuel line off carb and turn on key if have electric fuel pump, this will clean out line. get a spray can of carb cleaner from auto store and spray carb. hook up fuel line and try to start, should clean out carb with fresh fuel

The starter solenoid is going bad. Check for voltage at the solenoid when u first start it and if u have voltage and it clicks, replace entire starter

Won't start when wet out

Most often it is either a problem with the battery or the starter. You could try jump starting it, otherwise might have to tow it----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My 2005 caravan won't start. When I turn the key I hear a clicking sound but it doesn't start. It worked fine earliar today.The battery is fine for now.

Possible causes are: 1. Loose or corroded battery cables. 2. Bad starter 3. Dead battery. Try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is holding the key in the start position. If it starts then replace the starter. Thanks

My 2001 Dodge Durango won't start at times. I replaced battery and had alternator checked. Both checked out fine?? Help! ??

When it won't start, will the engine turn over and try to start, or does it act like a dead battery?

I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota w/ 3.9 5 speed 4X4 When I try to start it the starter engages for an instant then goes dead, if i hold the key to start it just keeps doing this, turns for an instant then...

You may want to check the wiring that is in you car between the starter and the key since you said you tried directly connecting the starter to the battery. Check for loose connections. Also most ignition systems have a capacitor in them, check it out if needs replacing

My 95 Dodge Dakota won't start. The electrical seems to be working fine but the engine won't even try to turn over

sounds like you may have a defective starter solenoid, the contacts in the solenoid get burnt and u get a no crank.

95 dakota dies when warmed up

yes it can but you may have a coolant temp sensor acting up which causes the computer to open the injectors to much which can also cause this 02 sensor code. when it stalls do u have spark and fuel pressure.
