If in the US, Autozone, Advance Auto Parts, Checker or Kragen, (depending on where you live) and probably others, will test it for you if you bring it in.

1995 toyota celica starts up when cold and will run until i get wherever i need to go. Then if i shut off and try to restart it doesnt make any clicking noise and wont try to turnover until cold.


So when your engine is hot the starter won't engage. Try cleaning and tightening the wires that are bolted to your starter first. You want bare shiny metal to metal at all your connections. Take care when unbolting the wires because you could strip or break the studs on the solenoid. If this doesn't help then I would say the solenoid is going bad and will need to be replaced. It's usually a good idea to replace the starter and solenoid as one unit. Hope this helps.

2001 dodge caravan clicks when trying to start


The clicking sound is coming from your starter solenoid. Which could mean your solenoid or starter or both are bad. But don't rush out and buy replacements until you have troubleshot the problem a little. First, try a jump start. If that works and the car starts, then either your battery is not putting out enough amperage to turn your engine over, which could mean your battery cables are corroded and not making good connection or your alternator is not charging your battery when the car is running. If it started, suggest you take it to an auto parts store and have them test your battery and alternator.

Now if it doesn't start when jump starting, you still need to do some more troubleshooting. Yes, it could be the solenoid and or the starter, but it could also be something internal to the engine. Take off the serpentine belt and try to turn the engine over with a large socket wrench. If it turns, then it is your starter/solenoid, if it doesn't then it is internal to your engine.

No starting, no clicking, intermittant


I believe your vehicle uses a starter relay as opposed to a solenoid. The posting says 93 but the heading says 98 but you should be dealing with a starter relay. Also if you have an oil leak that can lead to starter failure on these vehicles. The starter relay is on the passenger side fenderwell near the shock tower.

1997 dodge caravan 3.3L Won't Start.


clean both cables including ground. does it dim any of the lights or do they go out when you turn key to start? make sure all connections are clean and tight and that includes hot cable on starter, and the small wire on starter. if your sure everything is clean and tight. You can try this if you know how, you can chk. starter with a screw driver by crossing the big post to small post on starter but you got to be real careful as not to weld the screw driver to the posts as your are by passing the key and comeing strate from battery, if it turns starter there, then most likely not starter, if you got acess to an external starter switch it would be safer. if that all chks. out then most likely its the starter switch under dash on steering colume. starter is not a big thing to chg. just make sure you unhook battery before you take it off.
