Starts then, stops. After five or six times, starts.

This is starting to happen more frequently. If this problem can't be diagnosed.....New car...New brand!!!! Dealer can't diagnose problem if it doesn't happen a dealer. Had new fuel pump installed at 50500.

Sounds to me like you need a new ignition switch. Take the vehicle to a mechanic and have them further evaluate.

05 cts when iturn the key the engine does not stat just a click 2 or 3 times the it starts and it does not sound healthy( im from winnipeg minus 25 don't plug car in) when it warms up it does strt fine...

If it's the original battery, it's 12 years old and way beyond it's useful life. If replaced once, the second battery is probably near the end of its life, five to six years

If you're near a Wal-Mart super store, get a new battery installed if the other is old, five to six years They have good prices and top rated batteries by CR. While you're there and if it's -25 (C or F since the scales are concurrent about that point) go to snack shop and warm up with a nice hot cocoa or hot cup of coffee. Sometimes its free in the customer lounge.

Good Luck

This morning when I started my '98 Voyager. It started for about five seconds then turned off. This happened three times. Started it one more time and revved the engine. Same thing, five seconds then off....

I think the reason it starts and turns off is most likely you fuel pump the abs light on could be the brake fluid level and or the brakes may need replaced.

Frequently will crank but not start

the problem must be with the batteries. check the voltage levels of the battery using a voltmeter. if it goes lower that 10v and fast dying, then replace them. and also check the alternator charging the battery for any charging problem.

I don't know if your truck uses this method but several vehicles I have owned would turn on the electric cooling fan to combat the natural temperature rise that occurs in the engine once the coolant is not circulating anymore.
This prevents hard starting in a hot engine and if the thermostatic switch fails that controls the fan, the cooling (and turn-on) doesn't happen.
This may be your problem.
