It could be a bad Starter Solenoid or Starter, or even a weak Alternator that is not fully charging the Battery when the engine is running. Make sure all connections to the Battery and Starter are tight and there is no corrosion present. Make sure the battery is fully charged and if your car is running your Alternator is at least showing 13 to 14 volts on a Volt Meter, or your Instrument Panel Gauge. Check that your Alternator Belt is tight too.

2003 dodge caravan will not start. Makes a clicking noise, and dash shuts off, then makes a humming sound.


im going to say an almost dead battery .the hum you hear might be the fuel pump.you never heard it before because the van normaly starts .so boost your van if it starts you may have to replace the altenator the guages, no worries many cars do that .thats a code needing erased and if you disconnect the battery that may go away.

Van won't start. I just bought this van (1997 caravan) used and it stared with no problem. The last 2 days it has refused to start. When I try to start it will struggle and almost turn over then it...


When the van refuses to start, have you tried to jump start it? If not, I would suggest you do, because it would allow you to rule out the battery and alternator (or at least be relatively confident that they are good) if the van DOES NOT start when you try to jump start it, then it would be either the starter/solenoid or in the engine.

Try the spare key.
Dodge introduced in-key chip around 97.
The transponder may need to reprogram.

The van has a emergency cut switch that keep the van from starting it a 97 dodge van


Theres a fuel pump relay under the hood on the drivers side, this would stop the flow of fuel. Does the van crank over?? If not check the starter relay.

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
