Start your car with the key fob that came with the car,if you dont have one,call the dodge dealer,your anti theft security is on and needs the chip in the key fob to fix it.

SOURCE: 2006 dodge grand caravan-car won;t start.

Test at the spark plug if you are getting current there with a cheap spark plug tester, if not, it could be the spark box. ( it used to be an ignition coil on older cars ) double check the computer for codes which may lead to a cam sensor not giving the PCM information.

2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R Cranks but won't start!

It could be the fuel system.
It could either flooding or starving for fuel.
If injectors are fouled badly it will wet the plugs and not fire.
If plugs are pitted that makes it easier to flood. (check plug tip condition, check all plug wires and boots are good)

If it is starving -- fuel pump weak (going to fail).
Need to test fuel pump pressure.

03 dodge ram 1500 crew cab 4.7l v8 starts fine when cold but won't start after it is warm

First i would check the crank sensor by looking for rpm's on the tachometer or scan tool if you see any rpm's then crank sensor is good.Then check for leaking injectors and if they are not leaking then you will need to check the ECM it may have failed.

2000 Dodge neon starts and runs fine. But sometimes does want to start Engine cranks, but won't start

How many miles on the car? Have you checked the fuel pressure when it doesn't want to start? Do that first and then move on from there. To quickly test fuel pressure with no special equip get a can of starting fluid from the auto parts store, when it fails to start spray the fluid into the air intake of the engine well it is cranking, if it fires up then the fuel pump is likely not running on for some reason. This can be electrical in nature or just a failed electric fuel pump

My aunts 1997 Jimmy was towed to my Dads .Cranks but no start,after batt. charged. They had been hitting bottom of fuel tank,and would start.But not anymore . Dad replaced pump.Had to rewire connectors for...

I would recommend checking the "re-wire job and make sure it is done correctly. Many GMs have had problems with the connectors at the fuel pumps. The fuel pump manufacturers have re-designed the connector to correct the problems they have been having. This is WHY the re-wire is required. The fuel pump kits usually come with the new connector to complete the job. However, some of the kits have wire colors that do not match the wire colors on the vehicle harness, Some of them also have "duplicate" colors, like two black wires. One will be a larger gauge than the other one. I had a couple where the white wire on the new connector had to be wired to the purple wire on the vehicle harness, etc. If your dad did not follow the directions EXACTLY then this could be the cause of your problem. (The pump MAY be running backwards)

2004 z71 tahoe when the gas gauge is at a quarter of a tank it won't crank. It acts like it is empty with gas.

Check your fuel filter if it needs replacement. Empty it out then connect it back. Try to start it again. Inspect the fuel filter if it filled with gasoline. Check if there is noise at the fuel tank to check if the pump is working. If it did not, inspect the fuse for your fuel pump and the relay. If both are good you may connect the fuel pump directly to the battery to see if it works. It may be a bad wiring.

Bad wiring to fuel pump

don't know how you came to this conclusion but your fuel pump harness has four wires two for the gauge and two for the pump, if you dont know what they are you go over to a auto parts place have them show you one and look at the harness to see which go to the pump now go test the pump on your truck remember when you turn the key you will only recieve power to fuel pump for a few seconds to prime the fuel line after which once it starts the computer cintrols the rest. you might have a bad crank sensor causing it to not start.

My 2002 sedona xl will not supply gas to the engine is it the filter or the pump.the pump does not seem to run when ignition is on. Where is the pump or filter located and how repaired. Cy

If your sure its a fueling issue I would go to the wires that go to the fuel pump and check for power and ground. When the key is turned on the pump will run for about three seconds if you do not start the engine. If nothing happens then try cranking the engine and see if you have power. If you have power you will need a fuel pump. The pump is most likely in the fuel tank as is the filter. If you do not have power at the wires the you have a blown fuse of broken wire somewhere. Be aware the fuel pump is computer controlled and if the crank sensor is bad the fuel pump will not turn on. Easiest way to check for a bad crank sensor is crank the engine and check for a RPM signal. If you have a RPM gauge on the dash most of the time you cannot crank fast enough to get it ti move. Checking the RPM may need a timing light. Also a timing light will blink if the crank sensor is ok. If you have no RPM signal you most likely dont have fuel or spark., Easiest way to check for if you only have a fueling issue is spray a little brake clean into the throttle body. If it starts and stays running while adding very little spray of brake clean then you know its just a fuel issue. Also if the timing belt has stretched or jumped teeth this would cause a no start.
