Possible faulty park/neutral switch. Hold key in start, while moving gearshift up and down. Be sure to have a foot on the brakes! If it starts, or tries to, the switch is bad or out of adjustment. Possible bad ground too. Follow the negative cable from the battery to where it connects to the frame or engine, undo the bolt and clean it well with a wire brush.

Clunk or click? A click would be the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter. Recheck battery and starter connections for tightness. If they are good, it is possible you got a defective starter and should have it tested. If it is good, make sure you have power at the solenoid wire (small purple wire, I think) when key is held in the crank position.
Aside from that, are your battery cables in good condition?

1991 dodge ram van wont start

To clarify - the engine cranks then starts.
If it won't crank in any gear, I would check the neutral safety switch first.
You can also jumper the starter solenoid to make sure the starter will crank the engine manually without the circuit from the key switch.

Check the battery. If the battery is good, check for power to the starter. If you have power to the starter, but it won't crank over, you might have a bad starter. You can try whacking it a few times with a hammer to try and shift the armature. If that lets it crank over, you have a bad starter.

  3. if this is good soleniod could be bad but you have to starter any wayso just have it check
  4. if bad replace starter
  5. yes jack vehicle up & always use jack stands before getting under any vehicle

Switch rotates all the way to starting position but does not engage the starter. Battery is fully charged.

you could have a bad fusible link or a broken wire to the starter or a bad starter or a bad neutral safety switch check for power at the starter with the key in start position if no power bad fusible link if power then check solenoid in starter if the solenoid is good then id have to say neutral safety switch

Had a faulty stater in my 1990 c1500, replaced it but still wont crank. battery has 12.2 volts when tested. ?

while the car is running...the battery should give you at least 14 volts...
if it gives might need to check the alternator...
if the alternator is wont charge the battery and then the car will die...
if its giving the right amount of volts...
then try to bypass the starter...bring a screw driver and touch the battery terminal on the starter with any ground connection on the vehicle...if it starts...then the starter is not good...if it doesn't start...then you might have a electrical problem...
Good Luck!

Sounds like the starter decided to quit on you. Replace it and things will be better.
