Sounds like a alternater problem. with car off battery voltage should be at least 12.6 or better. less than 12 volts battery is bad. when running at battery, voltage should be at least 13.5 to 14.2 or better. take negative battery cable off while running, if car dies its the alternater. Good-Day! you can take alt, to any auto parts store to get it tested. advance,auto zone, etc.

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

2002 DODGE CARAVAN ALL OF A SUDDEN TURNS OVER BUT


If it is turning over, this means that the battery has power. I am not sure you will accomplish anything by jump starting a battery that has power in it. You need to figure out what your engine does not have. It needs 3 main things to run....fuel, spark, and compression. If an engine has all 3 of these things at the right time it will run, take away one of these and it will not. I would make sure you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail and make sure you have spark to your spark plugs first off.

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?

Replaced the fuel pump on 97 dodge mini caravan now motor wont crank like the battery is dead. tried jumping it - nothing. All lights work bright! What did I do wrong?


I would check the starter for voltage first - there is a starter relay that is grounded by the PCM. If the ASD relay is faulty the pcm won't have power. You should have battery power to the starter and power on the solenoid when you turn the key to start.
