Tell the dealer to check the regulator. Had the same problem in my 06. We tried the regulator first and it solved the problem. Same me quite a bit of money since I didn't have to replace the alternator.

SOURCE: intermittent starting on 2000 grand caravan

First problem, the starter may be starting to go, the second problem is a courtesy light switch problem in one of doors, most likely the sliding door.

SOURCE: elec problem between alternator and battery

The Problem was that the plug-in that goes into the altenator was not getting a good conection. Drove the van after that I had it fixed and the battery light came back on and I checked the altenator and the plug-in had fallen completly off. Plugged it back in and made sure that it snapped in completly and now it is fine.

P0320 Ignition/Distributor Engine Speed Input Circuit Malfunction


Your crankshaft position sensor has failed.  Sometimes it is possible that it's a wiring issue, but 95% of the time it's the sensor itself.  I would check the wires that you put them back on correctly when you changed them and the plugs.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Starting problem (see details), on 1998 Town & Country.


Check your battery cables and starter cables especially the connectors and bolts under the hood. The bolts and connections could be loose or corroded. Check the connections near the battery and on the battery since many times mechanics mess with these the most. My guess is something is loose if it starts well most times, but fails occasionally. Did you look for blinky codes or DTCs? A '47' (or P0562) could mean a bad battery or alternator, and a '12' (or P1684) could indicate intermittent connections. Do the dome lights dim or stay well lit when the clicking is heard during cranking? If so, then the issue is most likely near the battery and if not then the issue is more likely near the starter. Good luck. There are a lot of wires under the hood.

COMMON PROBLEMS
There are several things that few people know about starting cars in cold weather. 1. Check your battery to make sure it is not rusted, leaking, and has a charge 2. Jump start your battery with another car, even if you believe the battery is good, this often times will still start your car. 3. If your engine is cold, and you have an older car, ensure to get your fuel lines to the engine flushed or have fuel injection service performed 4. The engine tends to warp the same way wood does during the extreme cold, do not be afraid to continue trying to warm up the engine by constant cranks with it is cold out. Your not going to hurt the car, the worse that could happen is too much fuel will enter the carborator and cause flooding in the system to occur. Wait 20 minutes if this happens and start to crank again 5. Bad spark plugs are a major reason why many cars take a very long time to start 6. Please have your spark plugs removed and exchanged for new ones. Over time, spark plugs become fowled and prevent the car from starting even thou you hear cranking!!!

I have a 2003 CR-V. Tonight I left the lights on and it drained the battery. The battery is only a couple months new, so with a quick jump, it started immediately and ran, seemingly with no problems.......


your battery may not be fully charged yet with the quick jump. let it run for a bit with no lights or accesories, no a\c or heat. everything is run off the computer and it need to be fully charged.

Abs light came on and speedometer went crazy all at same time! It say going 65mph when only going maybe 25mph. also van feels slow.


in that case, you have a faulty speed sensor.....it is mounted on or near the output shaft of the gearbox, and should not cost you more than 100.00, even with labor, the speed sensor is also the input for the abs module, and also automatic transmission, cruise control etc

I was sitting in the car for a few hours listening to the radio and turning the car on and off several times during that time. when i went to leave the battery was dead. got a jump and drove home, about 20...


If the battery was run down enough 20 minutes of dring will not recharge it. It should go on a battery charger and then the battery condition checked. Just sitting and using the battery to play the radio is not a good idea. That is very hard on the battery and will shorten the life severly. If the battery was still the original I'd just replace the battery for a battery that old too much damage would have been done to even chance using it if would last it will not be long.

All the lights came on and the car just died


I assume that when you say all the lights came on ... refers to all the dashboard lights and NOT your headlight/tail lights? I found the following reference for a 2013 Ford Focus:
On my way home on the freeway, my oil & battery light started flickering on and off at the same time and as it did the car was stalling out. I put my 4-way flashers on, slowed down and moved to the right lane as a safety measure. After another few miles both lights came on and stayed on and the car shut down. I pulled over to the berm, waited a few minutes, tried starting, it started and drove home with no issues. I drove to work the next day with no issues. On the way home things started happening again, the car shut down, but this time after waiting a few minutes the car never started. I had it towed to the dealer and they found that a wiring harness was up against the throttle body and wore through the protective insulating tape, then the wires causing the problem.
Another cause might be that a relay in the fuse/relay box under the hood broke
Good luck in your troubleshooting
