Wont start makes clicking noise

I have a 2010 town & country and am having problems with it starting. A few weeks ago my wife had to get someone to boost her to get it started. The battery terminals where pretty dirty so I cleaned these and has worked good until today. If I boost it it starts fine. Once you shut it off it has a clicking sound and the dash lights are blinking. There is still poer to the lights and doors. Is it just a bad battery?

SOURCE: Van won't start. Just makes a clikcing noise. Horn sounds weak.

THIS IS CAUSED BY A DEFECTIVE STARTER MOTOR SOLENOID, REMOVE AND REPLACE THE STARTER OR JUST REPLACE THE SOLENOID ON TOP OF THE STARTER IF YOU CAN BUY IT SEPERATE.

SOURCE: the car wont start. it blinks a lot of lights makes clicking

I had these problems on my 2005 911 when the battery died. Apparently when it goes IT GOES. I had no problem with the battery until this time and then suddenly it was dead.

I've heard since that this is common on Porsche 996 when the battery is dead and then is should also be the case with the 986 Boxter.

I removed the old battery and left the car without a battery for at least 30 minutes (while doing some other maintainance). Put a new battery in and no problems after that. On most cars if you disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes the maintainance computer resets its self and all warninglights should dissapear unless there is a real fault, then the appropriate light should come back on!

Good luck.
Slick.

SOURCE: sometimes when I turn the key to start,get just a

The most common cause of a "No Crank" condition is a bad starter solenoid. The starter solenoid is a large coil that, most often, sits on top of the starter and engages the Bendix drive with the flywheel and sends power to the starter. If the internal coil goes bad, the solenoid won't engage the Bendix or turn the starter on. This condition will not cause any noticeable noise other than the clicking.

2003 Chrysler Town & Country CODE P1698


My wife has a 97 town and country. For about 2 weeks the instrument panel
was going out then coming back on. A couple days ago it got bad. The van would start and run only several seconds then the engine would shut down.
I took the Instrument panel out and it started and stayed running. I pulled the
PC board found the bad Soder connections and resodered them. Problem
was gone and the P1698 code erased. Best thing is it did not cost me anything and the van is fixed !

2000 Town and Country Intermittent Start.


I don't have a solution, but my 2000 town and country does the same thing. I just bought it a month ago and it started about a week after I bought it. I took it to my mechanic and he said the starter post were dirty and cleaned them, said that should fix it. Needless to say it's still doing it. I would love to know the reason as well. Anyone have any suggestions.

2005 town & country won't re-start after shut down..


Check and see how much your alternate is putting out. Make sure that your battery cables are clean. Check the water in the battery. It sounds more like a connection problem than stater.

Fans for radiator wont stop running


The lite came on because the computer saw that there was no power to the cooling fan curcuit. That is monitored by the computer. But to be sure you should have someone read the code for you. Or you can disconnect the battery and it will clear the code. If the lite comes back on the computer is still seeing a problem and you should have it check.

Sounds way too familiar. In the midst of trying to diagnose my engine fuel pump problem, the dealer replaced the 'SKREEM' module (which is the ignition/security/anti-theft module). This is what disables the starter and fuel pump, if someone pops the ignition switch to steel your car. Mine also required re-programming my remotes to the new module. I was still under warranty, hope yours has an extended. Good luck.
