Question about 1994 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

1994 plymouth voyager wont start - dash lights turn on but no starter/solenoid sounds.

The battery is fine. For the last week or two it chugged a little more than usual before starting (which I figured had to do with cold weather), but now it is completely dead. The dash lights come on, and do not dim when I try to start it. There is no clicking or anything. hanks!

It could be the neutral safety switch, but if the starter was not working correctly before now, it could be the starter or solenoid.
You would need to check for voltage at the starter and work back to the key switch as needed.

SOURCE: van wont start

I had a similiar problem recently. The car would not start and no sign of life no lights etc. I jump started it acouple of times but then even this did not work. It would jump start but right after the cables are disconnected it would stop. We checked the battery it was good. Turned out it was the alternator. It was not working properley so the system was not charging itself or even when it starts was not generating enough energy to keep it going. Changed the alternator, never had the same problem again. You can have your battery and alternator checked at an autozone shop for free.

SOURCE: 98 PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER WONT START - BLOWS ENG FUSE - HELP

You have a shorted engine harness, this is not common but it does happen, heat and engine movement cause damage to the harness, this is most common on hi miler cars and vans, the only way to fix it is to start by looking anywhere the harness rubs, that is where the damage occurs.

if the problem continues you might want to take it to a shop

SOURCE: battery has a full charge, but the solenoid just "clicks" when i try to start it

the contacts inside the starter solenoid that power up the starter are burnt, this is a common issue on this starter design, you can replace just the solenoid or just replace the whole starter.

I have a Plymouth Grand Voyager that I just replaced the egr valve on, and it wont crank over. any ideas?


Sounds strange that "no crank" after just changing EGR valve...go back to basics...check the battery post connections, all of your lights can still work with a dirty connection...the starter requires a lot more juice to crank...Hope this helps.

92 plymouth voyager wont start and nothing work the windows wont go down the lock and unlock button does nothing idk what the problem is i had the battery tested and the battery is fine what would cause...


Nothing works? How about the headlights, do they work? If yes, then start checking all fuses in the Power Distribution Center or Box under the hood. If no, then look for a bad maxi-fuse in the PDC, and check for a bad fusible link between the battery and the PDC. The battery positive cable goes to the starter, but a pigtail lead off the positive would go to the PDC, to distribute power to all the various circuits on the car.
When you turn the key to on, does the dash light up? If yes, at least power is getting to, and going through the ignition switch. One could then check for power on the starter solenoid wire when key was held in crank or start position.
If nothing when turning key to on-no dash lights, nothing-then check for an ignition fuse in the PDC. If fuse is good check for power being available at the ignition switch connector. If no power there, check wiring between PDC and the ignition switch-if power is up to the switch, but nothing happens with key on, no dash or warning lights, then could have a bad ignition switch.
It just sounds like a maxi-fuse has blown, or a bad fusible link. Good luck.

MY PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER 'S HEADLIGHT'S AND DASH LIGHTS WORK, BUT THE ENGINE WON'T TURN OVER. THERE IS NO SPARK COMING FROM THE ELECTRICAL WIRES.


When you say no spark, are you talking about the spark plugs, or just the general wiring?

If the engine won't turn over, then it isn't moving, and if it isn't moving then you need to check the following in this order:

1) Does the battery have power i.e. around 12.4 volts or over?No? Charge, test or replace battery.

2) Do the car's head lights dim considerably if turned on when attempting to crank? Yes? Possible lack of battery charge or faulty battery.

3) Assuming the battery is fine, can you turn the dash warning lights on and off with the key? No? Faulty ignition switch.

4) Is there a click sound when you turn the key, but no starter motor spin? Check starter motor connections or replace starter motor.


If none of the above prove to be of help, then please report.

Cleaned battery terminals I started the car and the sarter wont shut off even key is out of the ignition cylinder


there could be a problem with the starter being shorted out causing this problem.the solenoid is probably shorted out internally not shutting off the solenoid.the repair is to replace the starter.you can just replace the solenoid but not really recomended as the rest of the starte may give you a problem shortlyafter and have to repalce it anyways.

My van was having trouble starting. It holds the battery charge and the lights turn on but it just wont click over to start. Is my starter out or what could it possibly be?


Check your battery voltage and charging and the cable connections then unplug the ignition starter wire from the starter and try to jump the starter at the starter if it works then you have a voltage supply problem could be the ignition switch if it doesnt work that way the starter solenoid contacts are burnt you will need a starter

My voyager wont start it seems the alarm has stuck on , when i turn key nothing new battery fitted ,led light for alarm does not flash anymore /gear/milage lights do not come on ,i have taken battery off...


This may sound a bit simple but check the starter solenoid function by running an external wire to the thin wire terminal from the positive post on the battery.

If the starter does nothing then the starter is bad.

What your describing is a typical solenoid / starter problem. Given the car is now 10 year old, it is quite possible that either the solenoid or starter has failed.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Battery is fine, but engine wont turn over


Get under the front of the car and tap with a small tool like a wrench on the starter. The larger round cylendre with wires going to it. Don't touch the wires though, or you will short out the battery.
If it starts, it is probebly the starter or selenoid on the starter.
