The last time I saw this, it turned out to be a bad ECM due to shock. This was a Grand Caravan which didn't have any major damage as a result of the colision.

SOURCE: My Plymouth Voyager 98 won't start but when the

Spray some wet grafite spray in the key slot,plenty of spray and work the key back and forth.Remove the battery cables and clean the battery terminals ,and the battery post real shiney,and put them back on.Make sure you have good battery voltage also.Don`t take it for granted that the battery is good,take it off and have it checked and or charged on a good slow(2 amp) charge.Now when you are sure the battery is good ,and the connections are good,then if the starter clicks,grab the shifter and pull it up and down without moving out of park,while you hold the starter engaged.If it starts then the neutal safty switch is bad.Now if it keeps on clicking(it will be the starter clicking)replace the starter.You can lightly tap the starter with ahammer while trying to start the van,and start it,but the starter will need to be replaced.If I can help you any further,let me know.>>>

SOURCE: what would cause the auto shutdown relay to click

Mostly likely it is the Relay that is beginning to go bad. One way to test this is to use the Spare Relay of the same Type (size and shape). OR switch out a similiar Relay of the same type (size and shape) THAT IS A NON-ENGINE OPERATION RELAY. Check again the operations. If the "new" Relay in the Auto Shutdown Relay no longer clicks, then it most likely was the Relay that should be replaced. However, IF you used the "old" Relay in another function, put your finger on this Relay while the function is "On" and determine if it is now clicking. If it is clicking, then it is definitely the Relay and needs to be replaced.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have addtional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

SOURCE: Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.

This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

My van won't start after driving a short distance, it will start again after 3 to 5 minutes but then will act like it's going to stall while I'm driving. What's wrong?

Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair

Replaced timing belt engine will not start

check for spark at the sparkplugs, and listen to hear the fuel pump going when key is turned on. if no pump noise and no spark it can be the auto shutdown relay located on the drivers side fender behind battery. the auto shut down shuts off power to the ignition and fuel pump if the timing belt snaps. ,,,, if you have spark and fuel pump works then check firing order on plug wires , if they are in right place then check timing , if timing belt was replaced without lining up the timing marks it wont run

Starter relay location on a 1992 dodge caravan

Check along under hood on driverside fender area. Closest to windshield should be auto shut down, then next one toward front of van should be start relay. Probably a total or 4 or 5 there. Should be able to feel it click when starting, just to be sure no one mixed them up.
