The engine turns over when starting but it does not 'catch' so that the engine will 'ignite'. There are no clicks and the electrical gadgets work. Please advise.

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3 Starts but won't run


Sounds like the vehicle has a ballast ignition, which supplies a full voltage to the ignition when the engine is cranking and drops through a resistor when the engine starts. Sorry can't give the location of the resistor?

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...

Keyless remote stopped working, I replaced battery


The 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a standard key and remote setup with a separate remote fob. However, the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a combination key and remote on one device. To program a new keyless entry remote for the 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan, you must have at least one functional remote, which is required to enter synchronization mode. To program the combination key for the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan, you must have two functional combination keys. If you do not, you'll need to see an authorized Dodge dealer for keyless entry programming assistance.


2004 to 2009 Caravan Programming Instructions
  1. Insert one of your working combination keys into the ignition. Turn it to "On"; leave it in this position for about 10 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn it to "Off" and remove it.
  2. Insert your second working combination key into the ignition within 15 seconds of removing the previous key. Turn it to "On". After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime and the "Theft" light will begin to flash, entering synchronization mode. Turn the key to "Off" and remove it.
  3. Insert the combination key you want to program. Turn it to "On." After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime; then the "Theft" light will turn off. When the light turns off, the combination key--including the key and the remote--is programmed.
  4. Repeat Step Three for each combination key you want to program. A total of eight can be programmed.
Hope this help (remember comment and rated).

I was driving my 1997 dodge grand caravan last night and it lost power to drive like it was out of gas. My gas gauge says I have a half tank.


Assuming that you still have some gas in your tank. You can check the ignition systems in your car. This will start from the ignition coil to the distributor cap. At the distributor, check the rotor for carbonization, this must be cleaned. Check the spark plug cables for cracks. And finally the spark plugs, for burnt out. It may need replacement.
Before checking the ignition system, check the gas
lines going to the carburetor, it could be clogged or
broken. No gas fuel going to your carburetor will also
make your engine stop.
