98 Dodge Avenger wont start sometimes

The battery will hold a charge but when we try to start the car it wont start most of the time and it drains the battery. Checked the starter and the alternator, they both checked out fine. Sometimes the car will start, but its getting worse, so it wont start as much anymore. Any ideas of what it could be?

Check connections to crank sensor, then reset your comp by disconnecting your battery cables and holding them together. Make sure to have the code cleared as well.

Is there a computer rest button on a 2011 dodge avenger


no but if you leave the key on and unhook the battery then hold down either the horn or breaks to get the remaining charge all cars store even after the battery is unhooked to drain away when either the break lights stop lighting up or the horn stops blowing leave it unhooked with the key on for ten to fifteen min then take the key out and hook the battery back up that should reset it

98 dodge avenger es 6 cyl., won't start


Is you battery going dead? How old is the battery? After 4-5 years a battery is bad and needs to be replaced.

It sounds like you didn't replace the alternator?

Do you get a click when you try to start and it wont start?

Also check the grounds on the starter they could have corroded and this would cause an non-normal starting pattern. To chech these locate them, usually close to that starter and screwed into the frame of the vehicle. Unscrew them and take a wire brush and clean them very good making sure to expose bare metal. Do the same to the frame where it is screwed into.

Make sure to unhook you battery before doing anything!

Reply with the answer to the questions and we can go from there.

Good Luck,

Go get the battery and alternator tested for free at the auto parts store.  For some reason the alternator isn't charging the battery while your driving.

Back to "square one" If battery was drained by a short, etc and sat for a week like that, likely the battery is now doa...Have it tested. Then start checking for source of drain...at this point everything is suspect. Put an ammeter between either battery cable and battery and start pulling fuses till draw is gone. then check system that fuse serves. Yes \, could be a bad alternator but you really should test before wasting time especially if it's not that.

My 98 dodge avenger wont start i think its the starter pleas help


Sounds like the solenoid not grounded if you try to start and all it does is click then the solenoid is not grounded and if it's built on to the starter which it might be you might have to replace the starter. Try cleaning the wires going to the starter before you buy a new they may be corroded.

98 cadillac deville battery wont hold a charge


sounds like a 12V drain on the system, like a trunk or glove box light that won't shut off.> Could be many. many other reasons why. The way I would find the draining circuit would be to remove the neg cable of the battery. I then would connect a 12V test light between the neg battery TERMINAL and the neg battery CABLE. With a 12V drain the light will shine. I would install into the light a 9V battery powered recepticle to hold computer and radio station memory. Then I remove fuses 1 at a time, then reinstall, at the same time looking for the 12V light to go out. Hope this helps.
