2003 dodge caravan will not start. Makes a clicking noise, and dash shuts off, then makes a humming sound.

im going to say an almost dead battery .the hum you hear might be the fuel never heard it before because the van normaly starts .so boost your van if it starts you may have to replace the altenator the guages, no worries many cars do that .thats a code needing erased and if you disconnect the battery that may go away.

I have a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport and when I pull my key out of the ignition the van still runs I have to disconnect the battery in order to shut it down any idea how to fix this?

need more information sounds like a caravan though the body control modules tend to go bad the wiring nightmares continue with dodge ignition switches also go bad I would start with a new ignition switch question are the gauges still on after you take out the key?

2005 caravan all the guages and warning lights are flashing on and off when shut the van off you have to jump it off the more you rev the engine the worse it flashes

We had a similar situation with our 05 Grand Caravan, and the remedy was a new ignition switch.

The radio would come on by itself when no one was around, and dash lights would do crazy things.

Key won't turn to start the van

I know this is going to sound silly, but...........take the handle end of a screw driver and wrap on the key 2-3 times. That should solve it as it continually works for me. Addtionally, I like to then run some WD40 or lock deicer to clean the components of the ignition. It seems to be fine for a month or so and then need another wrap. Hopefully that helps.

Anti theft dodge

either you assumption is correct, could need a new key, or the ignition has went bad, try the key first if it does not solve it, replace the ignition.
