2000 Dodge Caravan Won't Start Just Clicks 1 Time! Help Please!

I have a 2000 dodge Caravan that won't start. I have a 3 small children and no vehicle at the moment. I really don't have the money to get it repaired and would like to try it my self, but don't know hardly anything with fixing them. But if it saves a little money then I'm all up for learning. So the problem is that when I try to start the van it justs clicks, not numerous times, just once. I tried to have it jumped and that didn't work. I put a new starter relay in and it worked for about a week or so and then I shut it off one day and went to start it five minutes later and it just clicked! I'm stuck I don't know what to do and I really need a car. So if any one could help me ASAP that would be really appreciated! Thank you! Brandi

Don't waste you money on a new starter. the part that is bad is the solenoid contacts. the parts are available at your local toyota dealer (yes Toyota). cost for the parts is under $10. I haven't found them at any parts store yet. probably because they can make more on the whole starter. carries them for really cheap.

Sounds like a bad starter. You can probably change it yourself. New starter is about $80 to $120

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.

2007 Dodge Caravan won't start.Batt. is good, all lights work, Turn key, solenoid clicks and stops, all gauge needles slowly move to max., and return to min. No codes displayed.

When you try to start it do the lights dim way low, have you been able to start it with a jump from another vehicle, unfortunately, chances are the starter needs to be replaced. How many miles does it have?

Caravan won't start after shifter cable replaced

Make sure the transmission range selector switch is adjusted correctly it is the switch just below the shift cable post. Also try to start it in Neutral rather than park position.

Sometimes my 2000 Dodge Caravan won't start but if I turn the AC & Radio off, it"ll start up just fine. Any idea where to look for the problem?


I would say its a Battery problem, Which has no strength to start the engine with the other electronics on. Have your battery check if this problem just started. Good luck

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan will crank but won't start.

Hi, if an engine cranks but refuses to start, it lacks ignition, fuel or compression. When the engine cranks normally but won't start, you need to check ignition, fuel and compression. Ignition is easy enough to check with a spark tester or by positioning a plug wire near a good ground. No spark? The most likely causes would be a failed ignition module, distributor pickup or crankshaft position (CKP) sensor.
