2002 Dodge Grand Caravan; something drains battery; alternator ok

If I miss driving the van one day it won't start the next. If I'm going to not drive for a while I disconnect the battery and reconnect it when I return and everything works. Something is draining the battery. Any suggestions?

Won,t start after it sits a while


Alternator may be faulty and not charging the battery or you may have a voltage leak to ground which is discharging the battery like a clock or radio light or some other faulty electrical component leaking power.

The alternator is the easiest to check. Does the battery go flat as you drive it? If not its probably not the alternator. You could check it with a current meter when the engine is running.

You could do the same with the battery when the engine is off to see what the current drain is. This might give you an angle on the thing which is draining the battery.

2004 Dodge Caravan won't start...just a clicking noise...


Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.
