Question about 1998 Dodge Intrepid
Open hood. Looking down on the engine, it is on the lower part of the engine where the transmission and engine meet.
Follow the red battery cable. It is connected to the starter solenoid / relay switch (also known as the starter switch). The solenoid is sitting on top of the starter.
How certain are you that the starter needs to be replaced? Doe sit start if you boost the battery?
Try this test:
Turn ON headlights and try to start car.
1. headlights turn OFF completely when you try to start car: means tha th e battery connections need cleaning. Remove the battery cables and clean the cable clamps and the battery posts.
2. Headlights dim really low means: The battery needs to be charged up or replaced.
3. No change in headlight brightness means: solenoid needs replacing; perhaps the starter.
Please let us know... trying to save you some $$ and lots of work.
