Your starter should be on the left side of the engine in the area where the bellhousing meets the engine block (under the car) It's about the size of a large juice can and has a bunch of wires going to it (including the positive lead from battery) Make sure you disconnect the positive lead of battery when working on it and make sure you remember what wires went where so you can put it back in!

Replaced started in 97 dodge caravan checked all wires and still wont start what to do


did you unhook battery cable first? if not and you arced the positive wire with a tool or other piece of metal, you probably blew the starter fuse or relay. It's going to be in the fuse panel under the hood. You may have to look in the owner manual to see which fuse it is.

My van clicks and won't start it's a 97 dodge caravan it has a new battery


It could be a bad Starter Solenoid or Starter, or even a weak Alternator that is not fully charging the Battery when the engine is running. Make sure all connections to the Battery and Starter are tight and there is no corrosion present. Make sure the battery is fully charged and if your car is running your Alternator is at least showing 13 to 14 volts on a Volt Meter, or your Instrument Panel Gauge. Check that your Alternator Belt is tight too.

Starter for dodge caravan 2000


DISCONNECT THE BATTERY, JACK UP AND SUPPORT YOUR CARAVAN. LYING ON YOUR BACK LOCATE THE STARTER WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THE ENGINE THROUGH THE BELL HOUSING .THERE ARE TWO 15 MILIMETER BOLTS THAT HOLDS THE STARTER ON . AFTER BREAKING THE BOLTS A 15MM WRENCH WOULD BE USEFUL.
