  • Efstathios Govas Sep 08, 2009

Replaced the fuel pump on 97 dodge mini caravan now motor wont crank like the battery is dead. tried jumping it - nothing. All lights work bright! What did I do wrong?

I would check the starter for voltage first - there is a starter relay that is grounded by the PCM. If the ASD relay is faulty the pcm won't have power. You should have battery power to the starter and power on the solenoid when you turn the key to start.

I have a 1998 v-8 dodge dakota, i bought a new bateery for it checked the relays and fuses it will turn over it just wont fire do u think it is the starter or the fuel pump??

the easyest way to determine the cause is a process of elimination first if itturns over then your problem is not the starter or ignition... if you checked fuses and relays and theres none broken or missing then you keep going, are you getting spark to the spark plugs? you can check it with a spark tester from an auto parts store they are around 3 or 4 bucks if you test the spark and there is spark then the last option is fuel you can check the fuel pump by disconnecting your battery for a few minutes put the key in the ignition but do not turn then reconnect the battery listen to see if you hear any sounds like something turning on if you dont then move to the next step, while standing out side of the vehicle turn the key to the on position but do not turn over you should then hear then fuel pump engage and pressure up if you do then you may want to check your fuel filter and make sure its not clogged if you dont hear the pump start then you may have a faulty pump.. good luck to you and i hope this helps

Van just shut down and wont start

Check all your fuses first. This is a easy check and could save you money. Make sure your battery is fully charged and you have no bad connections. make sure your fuel pump is kicking in when you turn your key. You should hear it for a second or two. You might not be getting fuel to the engine. If you turn your key and hear nothing, check your battery. It may be your starter as well. If it cranks and doedn't start, check the pump. Your fuel filter may be clogged. You can spray engine starter into your carborator, then try to start it. If it starts and dies, it could be your pump. If it does this, you are getting fuel. Try the fuses first. If you need help otherwise, just write me back. Best of luck.

Went to a store came back out would not start but strong battery,im tinking fuel pump dont know alot about car only had it a week

stand outside your van,reach in the window and turn your key over,but not to the start position. you should hear a whirring sound from the rear of the van and it should last about 2-3 sec. this will be your fuel pump powering up. if you dont hear it,then you have a bad fuel pump. Dodge Caravans from 96-01 are VERY bad about eating fuel pumps. if the pump is fine,have someone try to start it while you look under hood and see if injectors are spraying fuel. if the pump is good,and you have no spray from the injector,then you have a clogged fuel filter which will need replaced.

1992 Dodge Grand Caravan engine failure

There is not fuse for pump but a relay in the relay block. I do suggest jumping to see if pump turns on. Test voltage from ECM if needed. If voltage is to pump, then pump is shot. If not voltage, relay may be bad

Won't start up

no fuel getting to the engine, Ill assume there is gas in the car. It could be that the elecrtic fuel pump is not runnung. This could be either the pump itself or the relay that turns it on. While sitting in the car turn the key to the run position not start. when you get to the run position you should hear a buzzing sound for about 2-3 seconds, if not you would need to check the fuel pump relay, the fuel pump relay circut fuse could be blown also

Depending on how much gas you put into it, you may need more than a few gallons. Other ideas can be that the fuel pump burned out since there was no gas. its not good to try starting when You know your out of gas, but try with a bit more gas. IF the tank is full , try turning the key on and off several times, DONT Start IT but just turn the key to a on position. Sometimes when you do this you will be able to hear the fuel pump, if you dont hear a faint "buuzzzzzhmmmmm" then the pump could be the prob. Another method could be getting starting fluid and spraying into your Air filter Intake to the carbuerator . Hope any of this helps, good luck =)
