Question about 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE, 3.3 ltr Engine, All Systems turn on when key is turned on, but engine won't turn over, Check all relays and are good, new that is proven good, Brown wire to staer coil is NOT getting electricity to it, I can hear the starter relay click when the key is turned to the start position, so it doesn't seem to be the Ignition switch, I know there is a ignition coil. Is that between the starter and the starter coil relay, and could that be the problem? Can and how do I test it with A Volt Ohm Meter? Or is ther something else I am over looking?

    I had the Haynes Plymouth repair book with all the wiring diagrams, and what the relays and all the electrcial parts should read (omhs and volts) while discharged and charged. All were well within the norms. I used a digital meter so that I could see exactly what the omh and voltage read outs were. For instance with the negative pole in the battery disconnected, the Ignition Coil the B+ to the #1 pole should read less that 1 omh but to 2 & 3 should read 10-15K ohms. And the starter relay disconnected should have an ohm reading of 70-80 ohms between poles 85 & 86, poles 87A-30 should have continuity between them, and no continuity between poles 87-30. So when I asked the question I had already gone through the wiring diagram and tested all the relays and etectrical equipment. The only one I could not get a test on is the brown wore leading down to the solenoid. It is because of the stupid square connector it has on is. However my van has two connectors down there, one square and one that hangs free, an oval one. I have already looked at the two different solenoid/starter and there are two that fit the van and are exactly the same, one with the square connector with the brown wire (which I already know can have problems) and one with the oval connector. Both starter setups are exactly the same, measurements and everything, is there any reason why we couldn't change and use the oval connector, since those seem to give out a whole lot less often. The brown wire with the square connector is a known problem, but I haven't heard whather one could go ahead and use the oval connector with the starter with the oval connector. Both starters are sold for the exact same vehicle, engine, everthing, but I haven't heard from anyone whether or not they can be changed out. Do you know?

You need a wiring diagram before you start and get out your meter. How did you check out the relays? Remove them,power up the coils and read OHM's across all contacts or use the buzzer on the meter? You missed one The fact the solenoid is good doesn't mean the contacts inside aren't burnt and not applying current to the starter motor. We over look the easy stuff most of the time. Did you do a voltage drop test on the starter while trying to crank? A new solenoid may be all you need.

When you say no spark, are you talking about the spark plugs, or just the general wiring?

If the engine won't turn over, then it isn't moving, and if it isn't moving then you need to check the following in this order:

1) Does the battery have power i.e. around 12.4 volts or over?No? Charge, test or replace battery.

2) Do the car's head lights dim considerably if turned on when attempting to crank? Yes? Possible lack of battery charge or faulty battery.

3) Assuming the battery is fine, can you turn the dash warning lights on and off with the key? No? Faulty ignition switch.

4) Is there a click sound when you turn the key, but no starter motor spin? Check starter motor connections or replace starter motor.

If none of the above prove to be of help, then please report.

1998 Plymouth grand voyager ignition won't turn

I have had this happen on my 98 Voyager. Just have a new key cut. This new key will sometimes cure the problem. The older keys get worn out and won't unlock the ignition. Try this before a much more expensive and time consuming change of the ignition.

1999 plynouth grand voyager was coding egr replace

just because the check engine light is back on, it doesn't necessarily mean it is for the same problem. it could be, but would need to pull codes again to find out what its for. literally hundreds of different codes could turn on check engine light. also, was original code for "insufficient egr flow" or "excessive egr flow"? it makes a difference.

My 1999 plymouth voyager van's radiator fan constantly on

There is a fan relay in the fuse box in the engine compartment. Usually that is the reason why it won't turn off. It fuses in the on position. If you have the manual it will say which one is the fan relay. just pull it out and get a new one. They are not expensive.

Hope this helps

Plymouth grand voyager 1991 3.3l v6 se

Sounds like you need to check for a vacuum leak.(hissing noise) Also try this,: Cycle key, on, off, on, off, on, and leave on (not start) & count "check engine" light flashes. Always a number, a pause, then another number. For example: 2 flashes,pause, then 2 more is code 22. 3 flashes, pause 5 more, is code 35 etc. When you get 5 flashes, pause, then 5 more, that's code 55 which means end of message. Try that and lets see if any codes come up & go from there. Get back to us with what you find.

On my 1994 plymouth voyager the 3 wire harness to fuel pump (blue wire) doesn't have 12 volts; should it? fuel pump quit then worked once when hot-wired with 12 volts. fuse and relay is good.

The wire should not be hot until the relay is triggered. The relay does not get triggered until the ignition key is turned on. It will run for 3-5 seconds or until the system pressure it at max.
