98 Dodge Caravan, Starting Problem

When I turn on the ignition, I hear one click and that is all. It won't start. Charged the battery but that does not help. Any suggestions as to is it a starter solenoid or is it a starter?

    It cold be either, but the solenoid is much easier to troubleshoot/replace -- I'd start there. Do you know how to check the solenoid?

It sound like the starter contacts in side the start solinoid you can just replace the contacts but your better of replacing the starter to verify this try hitting the starter with a hammer not to hard while some is holding the key in the start postion

Disassemble and clean the carb, particularly the jets. I suspect the charge light being on is a result of your destroyed battery, which needs to be replaced. Sta-bil over the winter and a smart trickle charger will prevent the problems you are having in the future...

2001 dodge grand caravan spin wont start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My 2005 caravan won't start. When I turn the key I hear a clicking sound but it doesn't start. It worked fine earliar today.The battery is fine for now.


Possible causes are: 1. Loose or corroded battery cables. 2. Bad starter 3. Dead battery. Try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is holding the key in the start position. If it starts then replace the starter. Thanks

I have a 2001 Grand Caravan Sport. Not starting


THER ARETWO COPPER CONACTS IN THE STARTER SOLENOID THAT ARE REPACABLE.IF YOU TAKE THE COVER OFF THE SOLENOID PART OF THE STARTER AND PULL OUT THE PLUNGER I THINK YOU WILL SEE THAT ONE OF THE CONTACTS IS BURNT SHORTER THAN THE OTHER CAUSING YOU TO JUST HEAR A CLICK WHEN YOU TURN THE KET TO START.ANY STARTER REPAIR SHOP SHOULD STOCK THESE PARTS FOR BETWEEN $10 & $20 .
