    You disconnect the air filter box and spray towards the engine not the filter. But I really don't get your problem.

Please restate your problem, or confirm what I think is your problem from the following-

1) Your headlights work OK meaning the battery is charged.
2) The engine turns over with the key, but will not start.

If both conditions above are correct, then toyotech6 is very likely right. And if the engine starts but does not continue running, then be suspect of the fuel pump or fuel filter (assuming the gas tank has sufficient gas in it.). If it does not start, then be suspect of a failed igniton module or other probelm. You'll need a scan tool to find the problem.

Will a van start without the steering column locked?


Do you mean it won't crank at all, or cranks but does not start. If the first, turn on headlamps and try to start. Do headlights dim? If not, you may have bad battery connections, bad solenoid, bad neutral safety switch. If lights dim, bad battery, connections, solenoid or starter motor.

My 2002 dodge caravan wont start i turn the key and nothing


Start by cleaning battery terminals try to start if headlights are bright and nothing check the starter relay by the fuses stick the same type from another circuit or a spare one where it says spare. Try to start if the lights are bright hit the starter with a hammer a few times while someone has the key turned if it starts you need a new starter. If lights go out recharge battery or replace battery

I go to turn the van on and all i get is a click, all lights come on and battery tested out fine. Tried jumping it didnt work, mechanic took a hammer to the starter still didnt work. Any advice will help...


If the battery cables and battery check out fine then test for 12 volts at the signal wire at the starter when the ingnition key is turned to start. If 12 volts is present then the starter is bad or the ground strap from the engine to chassis is not getting a good connection. You can test for the the ground by placing a jumper cable to the negative battery post and the engine.

No 12 volts when cranking? Then check relay or ignition switch.

You can apply 12 volts to the signal wire at the starter to verify it will turn.

Do the interior lights dim when the key is turned to start?

This sounds like a classic bad connection either at the battery or engine ground. Check and recheck all your connections and be sure they are clean and tight.

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.

2003 Dodge Caravan Battery?


Sounds like time for new battery, give it a full charge & have it tested, but have alternator checked as well, even though it appears alternator is o.k. because it runs, but just in case it's an intermittent problem with alternator

Electrical all comes on with turn of key but starter wont engage in my 1997 Dodge Caravan


Either the battery wire may be loose or the battery may not have sufficient power to start the vehicle. Check the battery wire for perfect contact. If the contact is having white deposit through chemical reaction, apply hot water on it or apply WD 40. Recharge the battery. Even after all this if the car doesn't start, check the Starter.

Engine start problems


the problem could be the starter,battery, battery cables, or alternator. the clicking could most likely be the starter going bad if not bad already or the battery weak or bad battery cables, if you have good power to everything else radio headlamps and heater the i would start by replacing starterlet me know what you find.
