2000 Dodge Caravan Electrical Issue~van won't start

I can't start the van and when i try, the electrical (from what i' hear) sounds dangerous!
The interior light was flickering on and off when i was trying to start it and weird sounds coming from the dash!
Should I considering jumping it to get it started to get to my mechanic or is that the wrong approach?
Any advice is appreciated or if similar experience to you, please let me know what you did and was it an expensive solution.

I changed the fuel pump but the van still won't

And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.

My van sounds like it wants to start but wont

if it cranks over and won`t start,you need to check for spark at the plugs,if you do then you will have to check the fuel pressure with a gage it should be about 35lbs.if the fuel pressure is not good then the pump will have to be should be able to hear the pump run when you are trying to start the car at the filler neck with the gas cap removed or under the car at the gas tank.if you don`t you can try hitting the tank in middle at the bottom and the pump may start and the car will start.either way the pump will be no good.fuel pumps are common.

Sometimes when i try to start my van, i hear clicking and no start, but will start eventually, always starts when van is warmed up, had battery, alternater and started checked, all are good, i think it...

the clicking you hear is the starter solenoid due to bad electrical connection, low battery charge, bad battery cable or bad starter solenoid.

My 2000 Dodge Caravan has two fans but I don't see fan belts. Should there be?

No, you will not have fan belts.
The Fans are run by electric Fan Motors and are activated by a engine (coolant) temperature sensor.

Let me know if this helped....Thanks for using!

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan will not turn over. All I get is a "Click." The Alternator and starter were just checked out and they are fine. Is there some kind of electrical relay switch that could be bad?

Try taking both battery connections off and cleaning both battery posts with like a wire brush then take like a piece of 150 grit or so sand paper and put it in the end of each battery cable and sand them till they are fairly shiny then hook battery back up and try and start the van.
