If there is no clicking the problem may be related to the solenoid not getting current. That's what causes the clicking. The solenoid is a heavy relay which provides current to the starter if there is power on the battery and the poles inside the solenoid are not burned or damaged. If the solenoid is damaged it will not start on jump 'cause the current never reaches the starter

Hello Sir,

as u say, the problem symtoms are those when there is battery problem, maybe its low.

or else, whenever if u have locked ur car with the remote control center locking system n then opened the door with with the tradition keys, then ur car wont respond to any of ur keys untill u unlock it using the remote.


I am sure the problem lies with the battery.

or maximum there will be a wire loose connection.


thank u sir, if u feel my solution is worth reading then plz vote m/ rate me.

thank u sir

Van turn over but it wont start


Check to see if there's a check engine light when you turn the key. The van can't start if the computer, and fuel pump don't start. Sometimes it could have a blown fuse, broken ground wire or a bad relay.

My 1999 Pontiac Montana starts fine, and then sometimes dies


The starting /keep running issue is probably a slow IAC (idle air control)Next time turn the key on,wait 3 or 4 seconds then start,if it keeps running after that wait time everytime,it most likely is the IAC,,,,,,no big deal.
How long does the van sit when it has a dead battery?

My guess would be a switch (park interlock, brake interlock, etc.), a main fuse (located under the hood), or a starter solenoid. One easy check is to turn the key to start and simultaneously wiggle the shifter or pull it in to the Neutral position.

Good luck.

Van sometimes will not turnover when you turn the key, just makes a clicking sound. You can try it a couple of times and it will start fine. Had battery checked and it's ok. Maybe starter is going out?


This is typical of a starter going bad. It is caused by the main start relay going bad. The contacts are burned and have lots of carbon buildup on them.

I cant start my van because the key wont turn.


Try putting a little oil from the dip stick on a key, then try it. Or spray some WD-40 into the lock.

Mini van wont start


Sounds like starter selanoid, but first make sure battery connections are clean and tight, if sure they are then turn on headlights and try to start if still clicks and lights dim its starter.

Engine start problems


the problem could be the starter,battery, battery cables, or alternator. the clicking could most likely be the starter going bad if not bad already or the battery weak or bad battery cables, if you have good power to everything else radio headlamps and heater the i would start by replacing starterlet me know what you find.
