Disconnect the battery negative terminal. Remove the one large and one small wires from the starter. Starter is secured to transmission with one bolt and one nut/lockwasher. I think they are 9/16" fasteners.

How do I fix my van that will not start?

Hi James , you say you swapped relays ? The problem with that is you need to check for power an control at the relay socket . If you look on the bottom of the relay you will see four numbers , 30,87 an 85 ,86 . 85 an 86 are the control side of the relay . one of those two will have voltage an the other side goes to the PCM-engine computer . When you turn you key to start the vehicle a lot of things have to be right for the engine computer to energize that relay. No anti-theft system problems is the main one . Pin 30 should have battery voltage , pin 87 goes down to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . you can take a jumper wire an jump 30 an 87 the starter should crank over the engine - not start an run , just crank the engine over . There are a few good videos on youtube on starter system trouble shooting , pictures are better then me telling you. Good luck hope this helps

if you were driving it then it slowly died down if you noticed your lights, radio, car clock, seem to be running out of power your alternator is broken, if not that is probably an engine problem

this has a fairly easy fix. that vehicle has several belts as it does not have a serpentine belt it requires 2-3 depending on features. call the local parts store and request the belts for all your accessories,, you will NEED alternator, water pump /fan belt. as these belts fit from the crank to the accessory there is not defined path, for example from the crank to the alternator. also you will need 2 belts for the A/C compressor, as i remember it.

My dodge aries wont start every time. I turn the key several times and it makes a clicking sound before it tries to turn over and ever when the engine catches it wont start completely. I changed the...

The clicking is the starter solenoid which is normal, the starter motor is not making a good contact due to it's worn, a starter replacement will fix the problem.
