Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
Two times in the last three weeks i have gone to start my durango and it would just click the first i would turn the key. If i turn the key a couple more times it would turn over just fine. this last time there was a bad rattling noise that seemed to come from the lower part of the drivers side of the engine until i turned it off then started it again. the noise stopped and the engine sounded fine.???

SOURCE: 98 Durango will not turn
Sounds like a bad
connection. Clean all the connections first then if you have a clicking sound
coming from the PDC (fuse box) on the drivers side under the hood then it
sounds like you have a bad starter .
As the relay is clicking that means the ignition switch is good. Just insure that the relay is good. There is a spare in the PDC you can swap and check out so its the starter Starter/solenoid combo.take your volt meter and check battery volts while the starter is engaged, if you see very little change from the static voltage it's likely the starter bendix is being egaged into the ring gear but the high current side of the starter is not working, this is likely due to a dirty or worn commutator or worn brushes in the starter motor. If you do see a larger drop in voltage( say down to under 9.5volts) you more than likely have a current flow issue, possibly a weak cell in the battery, or a shorted starter motor winding.My best recomendation would be to remove the starter motor, and the battery, take them in with you to your local parts house and have them both tested, most parts stores will perform these tests for free, on the possibility that hey can sell you something.
STARTER MOTORREMOVAL:-1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.2. Raise and support the vehicle.3. Remove the nut and lock washer securing the starter motor to the mounting stud on the transmission torque converter housing Starter Motor Remove/Install4. While supporting the starter motor with one hand, use the other hand to remove the upper mounting screw from the starter motor.5. Slide the automatic transmission cooler tube bracket forward on the tubes far enough for the starter motor mounting flange to be removed from the lower mounting stud.6. Move the starter motor towards the front of the vehicle far enough for the nose of the starter pinion housing to clear the transmission torque converter housing. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.7. Tilt the nose downwards and lower the starter motor far enough to access and remove the nut that secures the battery positive cable connector eyelet to the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.8. Remove the battery positive cable connector eyelet from the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.9. Disconnect the battery positive cable wire harness connector from the solenoid terminal connector receptacle. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.10.Remove the starter motor from the engine compartment. --This will help.

it could be that the theft system has something to do with it .it proably that the ignition system has a device in the module the locks the system up when the theft system has been activated you should have the dealer check the ignition system or the theft system check.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge neon ignition turns on motor wont turn over also has cut out a couple of times starter tests out fine i only have i key for it steering wheel does not lock-can this be the anti theft system
check the battery. with dodge if there is not a good strong 12 volt source it will run right or start normal.
