Question about 1998 Plymouth Voyager

2 Answers

Starter posts When the key is turned, all we hear are a bunch of light clicking sounds! We need to keep turning the key and eventually the van will start. Is this the starter posts? How do we know for sure and how are these replaced?

Starter posts don't go bad unless they've been physically damaged for some reason. it doesn't hurt to make the nuts are tight on the posts though, but there's really no reason for them not to be tight. multiple clicks means the system is unable to maintain a constant sufficient current to keep the starter engaged, this usually is hallmark of a bad battery. however, since you're problem is intermittent, i would think you probably have a poor connection @ one of the battery terminals instea.

Perform a carbon load test on the battery
clean battery terminals

check for bad ignition contacts

clean all 3 starter terminals on the starter solnoid... careful with the connection between the solnoid and starter as they tend to seize.

look at connection to your starter. sometimes the positive cable works loose due to driving conditions. I had same problem with a Suzuki it only did it in cold weather but I ended up replacing the starter.

My guess would be a switch (park interlock, brake interlock, etc.), a main fuse (located under the hood), or a starter solenoid. One easy check is to turn the key to start and simultaneously wiggle the shifter or pull it in to the Neutral position.

Good luck.

My 96 subaru legacy w/2.2 engine wont start especially when cold.if i keep turning the key on and off it clicks then will eventually catch


If you turn the key to the crank position and all you hear is a single click than the starter is probably bad. Especially if you keep trying and the starter eventually starts working and starts the vehicle. This is usually caused by either bad contacts in the solenoid or worn out/dirt brushes/commutators. Buy repeatedly making the solenoid click you get what every is not working to move just enough to make a good connection and get everything working again.

When you turn the switch over, does the lights dim or flicker? If that's the case then the battery don't have the power it needs to turn the engine over, so it could be the cables and post need cleaning, or the solenoid for the starter is bad. The description you give with the clicking sound, gives me the thought of starter solenoid, but always do the easiest and cheapest. "clean those terminals and post first"

Positive cord from battery to starter


Methinks taht you have a bad starter. When you turn the key to "start", and you hear one click, that is def indicative of bad starter contacts, or the contacts are not coming together correctly. When you keep cycling the key, the contact plunger eventually moves, and then it will hit a "good spot" on the contacts, and then crankk. Aftermarket starters are notorious for this. Get a Toyota starter & install it, or take the starter to someone, and have them replace the contacts. This will def cure your issue. I do about 3-4 starters with this complaint a week here.
