You must be sure that the connections at the starter are sound. If they are o/k then check the current draw at the starter when the problem occurs.This can be done with a voltmeter attached to the battery and watch the voltage when someone is tryihg to start engine. If voltage drops to 10 volts or less that means the starter wants to turn. If voltage does not drop then it means the starter has a bad internal connection. Probably bad brushes. If this is what is wrong then starter replacement should occur

My 2001 dodge grand caravan sport won't start


DOES THE VEHICLE MAKE ANY NOISE AT ALL WHEN THE KEY IS TURNED?, IF YOU GET A "CLICK" BUT NOTHING ELSE THEN THE STARTER IS JAMMED, GET A HAMMER & GIVE THE STARTER A FEW SOLID FIRM BUT NOT OVER ZEALOUS WHACKS, MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED & TURN THE KEY, IF ITS ANYTHING LIKE ALL THE CARS I'VE HAD OVER THE YEARS IT WILL MAGICALLY SPRING TO LIFE - IF IN DOUBT - GIVE IT A CLOUT!!

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.

Ignition key will not turn


if the steering wheel is in a bind against the lock the key will not turn easily if at all. try rocking the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn the key. be firm with the wheel, you're not gonna hurt anything. not to much pressure on the key, forcing the key wont help.

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.

Car wont start...sometimes


Sounds like a bad starter solenoid, usually cheapest and easiest to replace the starter and solenoid as a unit. It is always best to check for power between the solenoid and the starter with a test light, if the solenoid clicks but the test light doesn't light up you have found the problem in the solenoid.

2001 dodge grand caravan ex 3.8 does not turn over


Try checking relays in the fuse box under the hood. If all checks out ok, check timing belt/chain.
