What else can be the reason this 2000 Dodge Caravan won't turn over by turning the key while in park.


have you checked the ignition switch thats on the steering column shaft, when you turn the key it moves a rod that moves positions on the switch.

2004 express van wont turnover


Try it in neutral and see if that works. Could be a bad PRNDL switch on the transmission. Otherwise I would check the ignition switch itself. Some folks like to have a hundred keys on their keychain that over time will cause ignition switch failures due to the extra weight.

Will not turn over, battery good


You haven't said what happens when you turn the ignition switch. If you hear a clicking noise, but the starter doesn't engage, then you either have a bad starter solenoid, or possibly a bad starter. If that happens, make sure the transmission is in park, or neutral if it's a standard, and jump a screwdriver or plier across the heavy terminals on the solenoid. There will probably be sparks, if the starter is good it will turn over the engine and you need a solenoid. On the other hand if you turn on the ignition and there is no clicking or other sound, then check the wires from the battery. You may have a wire loose, a loose ground wire, or a bad ignition switch.

My 79 ford 9000 dump truck has no power after the key switch is turned on..history ...it has been running....I went to start it and the batteries were low...I tried to boost it and something went click and...


There is a solenoid mounted in the engine compartment, usually on the driver or passengers side on the inside of the fender that allows full battery current to reach the starter. Assuming the starter is good, you can test this terminal with a test light, there should be four connections on it. One is just a ground, some of them dont even have a ground, the unit is self grounded. The other small terminal on it is power from the accessory, or key (ignition) switch. Use a test light to check for power at this terminal. You should have no power when the key is off, and you should have full power (12 volts) when the key is turned all the way to start (as if you were cranking the vehicle). If this tests okay, try jumping across the other two terminals (they are both bigger than the first i described). One comes from the positive side of the battery, the other leads to the starter. Turn the key to the "on" position, and use a piece of heavy gauge wire to "jump" across the terminals. Caution: this is a bit hazardous, use good judgment, and be aware that leaving a wire on there could cause the wire to burn, or something to catch fire. All you want to do is tap the wire across, and see if the starter attempts to turn. Most likely, it will. You'll need to disconnect the batteries, and buy and install another solenoid. Just be sure the new one is connected as the old one is. Any other issues, please feel free to contact me back.

Thanks for asking!

Van wont start when key is turned


sometimes when one replaces the ignition a small plastic part falls from the new ignition causing it not to fully engage-for fun turn key with a liitle firmness all the way to sart-sometimes with added pressure it engages-orthewise remove ignition for examination

Starter wont engage


The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.

Engaging the Starter


Check to make sure that when you turn on ignition switch the solenoid is receiving power to engage the pinion gear and feed power to the starter motor. It is new so I suspect it is not receiving juice. U may have some bad connection causing the intermittent issue. PIA.
