Question about 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan
This started when it got real cold here in Michigan.New starter was installed and was fine till cold hit again.Pulled van into shop bay for 20 minutes started right up,got home and in the AM no power to S side of starter and here it sits .Any ideas.
Your charging system is extremely temp-sensitive. Especially your battery.
Test your battery and ensure it is still good (sounds like it is, but eliminate it as a possible problem nonetheless). Put the battery on a charger and make sure it is fully powered. Remove, inspect and clean your cables (I suspect this is where your problem lies). Even if they appear ok, clean them and make sure they are secure. Next, track the wires to and from the battery and alternator. Again, inspect them and make sure they are clean and secure. Then track the wires going to your starter and make sure they are clean/secure. Pay close attention to any area that the wires run near the exhaust (check for damage).
I suspect that this will fix your problem. If not, post and update and we'll go from there.
Hope this helps and good luck!
