Question about Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Sometimes when i crank my 1997 3.3 liter dodge grand caravan it won't turn over at all. it will do it after a few times, but at first it won't do anything. it just makes a click sound once. it is not the battery, because i just had it replaced and the cables cleaned very well. it did have a circuit board in the dash that i had re-soldered that fixed a lot of problems, and this might be related to that. i just need to know what you think. thank you, Sheldon

For 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan,instrument clusters with light when ignition turn on, but there's no crank and no start. Battery just changed five months ago


I have a similar problem. Do you also notice the gauges on the instrument panel going out from time to time? (Have to slap the dashboard.) I have been told the start problem is related to a problem with the instrument panel (a control unit contained therein). I have found at times turning the key to the ON position for a few seconds (odometer lights stabilize) before moving to the START position sometimes helps.

Unfortunately, replacing the instrument cluster/control unit can cost up to $600-700. I am not a mechanic, but have inquired about this for my own Caravan. Good luck.

Wife's 2007 dodge grand caravan has re-start problems. She makes an errand stop, leaves daughter inside car listening to radio. Returns, turns key and hears "click-click-click...". Sometimes it...


Replace battery. The CCA or cold cranking amps can be too low while voltage remains normal. Most the time when this happens the battery only operates properly when cold.
