If the engine cranks but will not start, start looking for an ignition or fuel problem. I assume the engine is cranking normally. You should clean the battery posts anyway.

I have 2005 I changed the starter and battery good but it still won't start


First does it crank, if it does then check to see if the fuel injectors are getting fuel.....could be a fuel pump...

second....if there is nothing when you turn the key and the battery is good and the starter was replaced...it could be a bad ground.....thats the ground coming off your battery and goes to your chassis of the car.........let me know how you make out.

  1. Sounds like the battery may not have enough power in it to start it.
  2. Turn lights on and try starting, if lights go out durin the start the battery may be dead.

Why does my 2005 dodge grande caravan turns over too slow to start?. Relpaced starter, had battery tested . tried boosting still no luck. please help


Sounds like you have a big draw on the battery that's not being caused by the starter. Try using a VOM to check the voltage at the starter during cracking. Also check for any voltage readings between the neg battery post and any ground point, the reading should be zero. Any voltage at all here indicates a complete circuit between the battery and ground where there should not be any as long as the ignition switch is off.

My 2005 caravan won't start. When I turn the key I hear a clicking sound but it doesn't start. It worked fine earliar today.The battery is fine for now.


Possible causes are: 1. Loose or corroded battery cables. 2. Bad starter 3. Dead battery. Try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is holding the key in the start position. If it starts then replace the starter. Thanks

TO CHECK STARTER SOLENOID FIRST TURN OFF RADIO THEN REMOVE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE AND POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE.THEN REMOVE STARTER BUY A REMOTE SWITCH.YOU NEED BATTERY JUMPER CABLES HOOK BATTERY JUMPER CABLES TO BATTERY PUT POSITIVE CABLE ON POSITIVE BATTERY POST THEN PUT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE ON NEGATIVE POST. HOOK BATTERY CABLES TO STARTER USE NEGATIVE CABLE GROUND STARTER BODY AND PUT POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE ON THE LARGE POSITIVE POST ON STARTER SOLENOID. NOW TAKE REMOTE SWITCH HOOK RED WIRE TO STARTER SOLENOID POSITIVE POST THEN HOOK BLACK WIRE TO REMOTE SWITCH TO STARTER SOLENOID SWITCH TERMINAL WITH LETTER S THEN PRESS REMOTE IF STARTER SPINS STRONG WITH A GOOD KICK STARTER GOOD.YOUR PROBLEM COULD BE CORRODED WORN BATTERY CABLES.

if it cranks real slow when hot and ok when cold then the battery is ok
starter may be bad you need an ameter to verifie it though if it draws to many amps then its bad.but i think it a safe bet starter is bad

I would have your voltage regulator/altenator testested.Then I would check starter relay and check the rest of the wiring to make sure you are getting power to starter and also your ECU
