Sounds similar to my old 94 dodge ram. Battery died at least I thought, replaced it and truck would not turn over. After about three hours of playing around I start checking all my wires and connections any loose wires I tighten or replaced if they looked worn or bad. And I found a ground wire was not connected to frame it came loose. Tightened it and hooked battery up and it started.

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.

It is on the firewall under the hood. It has 3 to 4 bolts holding on. Be careful when taking it out to see how the new one lines back up. Hope it helps.

You could have a clogged Catalytic Converter which would cause the backfiring and non -starting issue.

My 2000 Dodge Caravan won't start


Are you saying the engine will not crank, or crank but will not start ?
None of the engine sensors come into play until after the engine is cranking.
Cranking problems can include the neutral safety switch and other factors with the crank circuit back to the key switch.

I just changed my starter and now it won't start just get a click noise


your getting a click noise from your starter not having enough power to turn your enginge over test your battery to see if it is dead and if so charge or replace but if its not dead then you need to check your connections at your starter and make sure therre hooked up right and are tight especially your ground make sure it is hooked to a clean metal to metal surface and is tight the same for your power wire make sure it is clean and is tight, but def check your battery first the click usually means dead batery

Got new battery and starter ran for 2 days, then unable to start. had to jump it. but would not continue running. any ideas


If it will run with a boost hooked up, or with battery fully charged, then alternator needs to be tested. Charge battery back up, check and record voltage before starting ,then start it and check voltage when engine running . It should increase when engine is running, otherwise something wrong with alternator itself, or wiring to or from it. Clean and inspect wiring to be sure.

Starting Problem


Probably a bad starter as well. A good battery can make a marginal starter work, but over time the battery will be weakened by the drain of the starter or the starter will get worse.

Remove the starter and take it to your local parts store for testing and replacement. Bring your battery along as the bad starter might have toasted it.

Also a bad battery can wear out a starter quickly.

We had issues like this with our pickup truck a few years back. Replaced the battery, worked okay for a while, then the replaced the starter, worked okay for a while, then the battery was bad. Eventually replaced both and haven't had any issues since.

So when replacing one it is a good idea to check the other.

2000 DODGE CARAVAN WILL NOT START


Ah, the old catch 22! Two possibilities, 1. would u like to save $ and do it yourself? If u can jack the vehicle up and put it on safety stands (or something sturdy like concrete blocks or large wood timbers) u can remove the starter. It isn't very difficult on this vehicle. It involves removing 3 connections, 2 bolts. 2nd possibility, do u belong to AAA? If u do, they will tow it 5 miles for free under regular plan, 100 miles under extended plan for free. Also check your car insurance co., they might provide free tow. Let me know what u decide.
