The belt will usually start making noise when either the pulleys are out of alignment, or if there's water or debris getting on the belt, it will eventually start making noise. Inspect the belt for signs of irregular wear from misalignment, or debris in between the ribs of the belt. If there's debris, then that's the problem. So clean them out. Replace the belt if nothing helps.

The bearing in the pulley is a single row ball bearing so you can expect a slight side movement in the pulley. Check the drive belt for cracks. Ensure that the belt is running at the top of the pulley and not down in the groove. Lastly if there is no other obvious problems then change the drive belt

SOURCE: 2004 Dodge Caravan won't start...just a clicking noise...

Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.

2000 grand caravan blow cold on floor vent but not dash vents


This sounds a lot like a door actuator it is locate behind the radio part od the dash when you switch the vents like to the floor upper dash do you hear a clicking sound? put your ear to the middle of the dash where the switch to the heat / cool is and listen for the clicking sound when you change the vents direction. If you do it's the vent actuator you will have to remove the face part of the vent and it's in behind that it is usually a white plastic box it may be black but most are white. The cost is about 90 to 120 Canadian dollars.
Hope this helps good luck.

I have a 2004 Dodge Grand caravan that won't start. (60,000 miles) I hear a clicking noise and my gauges go "crazy" when I turn the key. (Speedometer goes from 0-120 and back to zero when I turn...


Sounds like a classic case of a dead battery. It takes much less energy to sweep the gauges and turn on the lights than it does to crank the engine over. The clicking noise is usually your starter solenoid trying to engage and spin the starter. Try a new battery. Happy motoring.

Good luck.

I'd take a close look at the relays under the hood, in the fuse/relay box, i think on yours probably on drivers side near shock tower. Look close at connections to it also.

yes you must jack the vehicle up put it on jack stands for safety, and around the power steeirng pump under neath you will see the nut that is holding it you will need a long extension and a swivel.
should be 15, 14, or 13 mm
when installing the belt itself, you must put it on the idler pulley last that is the other smooth pulley, otherwise it will be a bear to get on. good luck.
