Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

2 Answers

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan will not turn over. All I get is a "Click." The Alternator and starter were just checked out and they are fine. Is there some kind of electrical relay switch that could be bad?

Try taking both battery connections off and cleaning both battery posts with like a wire brush then take like a piece of 150 grit or so sand paper and put it in the end of each battery cable and sand them till they are fairly shiny then hook battery back up and try and start the van.

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan wont start anymore, it started up just fine, went inside grocery store, when i was gonna leave i turned the key and got nothing, did not turn over, got absolutely nothing, no

Common problem with this vehicle is the starter relay(part of starter motor)When they go bad the vehicle will not start or turn over.You should get an audible click when it fails.

I have a 2000 Grand Caravan that will ONLY start with a JUMP ........ the starter clicks and WILL start the VAN the battery is GOOD and new it was checked 2 times by 2 different places ..... the...

it sounds like you may have a bad starter solenoid and the extra voltage from the jumper vehicle is enough to complete the circuit through the solenoid to allow the starter to turn over.sometimes the solenoid contacts get very dirty and can`t complete the circuit on its own without a jump.i think these have a bosch starter system on them and you can replace the contacts only in the solenoid.

I would remove and check the starter. If the drive came out and stayed out it will lock the engine and give you the click. The ASR will click as well because it is trying to engage anyway.

HELLO i had the same problem with my caravan 2000 the problem is that your starter contact are worn out.That is very easy to fix ,you have to removed your starter from the engine,and you will see a little cover with trees screws right behind the post where your battery cable plug on the starter remove this cover and your contacts are right there.Be sure when you will install the new ones they have to be flush with the plate behind if thoses are in angle after installation they will worn out fast in fact change the plounger to you can purchase the parts at the starter/alternator repair shop it is about 20 bucks.
