Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. How did you test it?
Did you check voltage and ground for the starter motor? Two voltage circuits at the starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in the crank position and is wired through the clutch or neutral switch, depending on your tranny. Ground is also important. Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.

2003 f 150 will not crank during wet weather


If the starter does not engage during wet weather but works fine otherwise it will most likely be an electrical issue. The first thing to do is test the small start wire at the starter while holding the ignition in crank position. Use a test light and if the start circuit is good, the test light will light and the problem will be within the starter. If the test light does not light, the problem will be electrical and could be the starter relay or any wiring in between

Starter doesn't engage the flywheel


Well since you replaced the starter, I think I would load test the battery cold and then again hot. It could be you have a dead cell in the battery and it is not producing enough voltage to work the starter solenoid.
Or it could be a bad connection between the battery and starter, or battery and ground.

Replace the starter, static testing is notoriously poor for starter issues.

Sometimes it has problems not starting. I have


Could be in the keyswitch or a bad starter. You tested the battery and it tested fine? The parts stores have a special tester to test batteries and they will do it for free. If you engage the starter while they test the battery most the meters can test your starter at the same time.

I have a 2003 Dodge Caravan with a 3.3L it wont start or even turn over. Run test on electrical system found ignition signal to relay found power supply to the relay and ground to the relay. When I jumped...


Yes they do but I would rather think you have a bad battery cabe connection to the system, sometimes the battery cable corrudes and you can't see it try replacing the cable ends and the connector ends espically if they are by the battery.

2003 dodge caravan won't start


My 2003 dodge caravan would not start after driving about 1/2 hour. I stopped for coffee and when got back in to start it started I switched gears and it stalled. I tried to start again switched gears then it started but only for 2 sec. No clicking, no cranking sound just would not start but battery functions were great. Spent 2 days with a mechanic who could not resolve so sent to Dodge. After a day of putting wires back and checking out the problem they said it was the computer. Said that it was bad and could be replaced at no charge due to malfunction. Yes, it worked fine afterwards no more problems. They also said that some of the computers are found to be defective like this one so I hope this helps you in the right choice to have the dealer check it out if you are unable to get a computer reading and there is no obvious short in the system. Free sounded very good but as you know there is no such thing as really free as they got me for other things $350 worth. ouch!
