I have a 1991 dodge caravan/3 liter v6 engine.I have replaced the alternator and the battery but after about 24 hours its dead do I fix this?

You have a parasitic drain somewhere. We have an almost identical model at work and we have an ignition problem where you can remove the key in accessory position which leaves some of the electronics on and drains the battery. Faulty light switch, interior light left on?

Van would not start jumped it and it started then battery light came on after about 10 ks. When van stopped and shut off Ignition it wouldn't start again. Radio would not work either after it was started

The alternator belt, is it snapped? If so fit new one.

How old is the battery? Still the original? Maybe time for a new one if so.

Is the alternator whining? The bearings could be shot and a new or recon one will be needed.

Do the cheap stuff first, ie. the belt.

Vote for me if this helps. Thanks

My caravan wont start. my battery is still working fine but when you try to start the car, you hear a clicking sound. the car only works if you charge the battery first. i removed the negative post from...

sounds like you need a new battery and battery terminals. the battery because you need to charge it first. and the battery bolts because you have to jiggle the wires

2004 Dodge Caravan won't start...just a clicking noise...

Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.

I replaced the altrenator and battery ona 1995 dodge caravan 3.3L V6 ENGINE and drove it 1 time now it wont start it makes a clicking sound wheb i turn the key over what could be the problem

It would be easy to suspect a starter/solenoid problem if not for the history you described. It would be quite a coincidence that this problem is happening after just changing the alternator and battery. I would suspect that the battery is not fully charged. It sounds like there is not enough voltage to operate the starter, but that will be easy enough to determine. I would charge the battery fully and if the vehicle starts, take it to get the alternator output checked at a parts store. If it still won't start and presents the same problem, then check the starter. If the battery is discharged, something has to have caused it. Just because an alternator is "new" doesn't necessarily mean that it's functional. Having the output checked will show how the alternator is performing. Just some thoughts for you to consider. Sorry for your trouble and best wishes.

Hoe to Replace an alternator on a 1996 Dodge Ram Van 2500 3.9L V6

Remove negative battery cable.
Remove the electrical plug and wireing. Mark them.
Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.
Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.
Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.
While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
Do the reverse procedure to install new alternator.

Loud Sqeaul/screech from engine upon start up

could be your alternator. at start up. alternator usually has a big load because you just use your starter. it would recharge the battery and after a while the battery would be fully charge, the squealing noise will be gone.

check also all the belts if they are individual belts. use some belt dressings to eliminate the noise. sometimes the belt are just worn out and it would also make these noises.

tnx 4 using fixya,
