There are 2 wires on the starter simply connect them together to start the cranking,you will need to make a jumper wire for the smaller wire to connect to its terminal if it wont crank and the battery is good then the starter is no good

Had new tranny put in my 1997 dodge caravan. now it won't start. put new starter put in, new starter relay, alternator checked out, battery good. now what?


The neutal safety switch is probably your culprit. It is on the transmission. Make sure all the electrical wireing connections are good.

Need to replace the starter on a 1997 dodge grand caravan


to remove the starter from motor you need to disconnect the battery negative wire from the battery. then remove the battery wire and start wire from solenoid. remove the bolts holding the starter to the transmission bellhousing. then remove starter. installation is the reverse of removal.

I replaced the starter and the starter relay and battery in my 1997 3.0 dodge caravan and it still will not start. Some how power is not getting to the starter.


Try routing a jumper cable to the starter terminal where the battery cable goes to & then hook it to your positive bayyery connection. Then try to start it. If nothing happens you have a bad ground connection

1997 Dodge Caravan won't start - has a tick tick sound


Hi savvyuserbyo;

That tick, tick sound is probably the starter solenoid trying to activate the starter.

Here's a couple of things you can try. Take a hammer and tap the starter motor (not real hard, just medium) and then try to start it.

The 2nd thing you can do it to take a piece of wire, like lamp cord and(with someone helping) touch one end to the small terminal on the starter. (There is a large battery size wire connected to a large terminal on the starter, this is not the one you use) use the small terminal. Have your helper touch the other end to the positive terminal of the battery.

If the engine cranks. the solenoid is probably bad. If it doesnt crank the starter is bad.

The final thing to do is to remove the starter (after you disconnect the ground lead of the battery) and take it to an Auto Zone type store and have them check it out for you. BTW, starter and solenoid are sold as a unit. I just replace mine on my 94 F159 and is cost $100 exchange. If you need a replacement get a rebuilt rathert than a new. Just as good and cheaper.

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if Appropriate. Thanks
