It sounds like you either need new starter brushes or a new starter. If you turn the key and the starter just clicks, try tapping gently on the starter with a metal bar. If the starter then turns over you should take it out and replace the brushes or put in a new or rebuilt starter. When you have to start tapping on the starter you may only have a few starts left.

My 2005 uplander wont start, sometimes it tries to but... nothing. it cranks, acts like its not getting fuel. is it the throttle body,iac,relay or fuel pump, what???


I would first suspect the fuel pump. Do you hear it buzz on for a couple seconds with turning the key to ON, not start?
It should come on for 2 seconds to prime the line with pressure to the engine. Do you hear it? Stand by the gas tank and have someone cycle the key to on if you need to.
If you hear nothing from the tank, you need to investigate the fuel pump and it's circuit.
There will be a fuse for the fuel pump, it is under the hood in the power distribution box-the fuse/relay block. The power for the pump goes from that fuse to the fuel pump relay (also in that fuse/block) and when the engine computer signals that relay on, the power goes through the relay and then directly to the pump in the tank.
Try this test, if your pump doesn't work-test the FPR-to test if the relay is getting a signal from the computer: hold your finger lightly on the relay. now have a helper cycle the key again from off to on (not start). Every time the key is cycled you should feel the click of the relay energizing. If you feel it click and you checked the fuse and it is good, and you still have no pump coming on, then it is likely you need a new pump. Bang on the bottom of the tank, a couple of raps, then see if pump turns on. A failing pump can sometimes be turned on by jolting it like this, but it only works a time or two or three.
So now what? If the pump is working and putting fuel to the engine, then check for spark at a spark plug. Usually a sudden no start means the engine has lost either gas or spark.

Electrical system on vehicle goes down and than comes back on. Everything on the dash goes out and comes back on or we have to start the car again.


With electrical issues, I usually pick one component that has a problem, then check the wiring diagram for that component. If that circuit is fuse protected, so much the better, then you check fuse circuit for voltage. Some fuse circuits are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. If the fuse circuit gets ignition feed, meaning it goes hot with the key on, have to check feed to and from ignition switch.
Sometimes intermittent problems can be hard to track. Have to do testing when problem is ongoing.

Not geting fuel


first check the fuse box to see if there are fuses for the fuel pump, and also check to see if there is a fuel pump relay...if fuses are good..then have someone turn the key on while you listen to the fuel pump relay...it should click when the key is turned.....if this works then there may be the possibility that the fuel; pump is defective...you can try hitting the fuel tank with a rubber mallet and see if the fuel pump starts working again...a lot of dodge fuel pumps will become intermittant(I have had several dodge p/u trucks do this) and if you pound on the fuel tank ...sometimes they will start working again....if it starts working, then you will need to change it..because it will only happen again...and probably at the most inconvenient time...to change the fuel pump you will either need too remove the bed of the truck(which I find is the easiest way) to get to the top of the fuel tank. Or , you can remove the straps that hold the fuel tank up...the only problem with this is if the tank is full then it is going to weigh somewhere around 250 pounds...best way is to remove the bed....on top of the fuel tank is the "fuel deliver module"...as dodge refers to it as...there is a large "C" clip that holds the unit in the tank...you need to remove the clip with a flat blade screwdriver and then the module will pop up...be careful when removing the unit as there is a float assembly that may be damaged when you remove the assembly.....sometimes you may be able to obtain just the fuel pump(depending on model) and sometimes you may have to replace the whole delivery module, which is rather expensive...then reassemble is revers order

I need to reset the oil change light.how do I do This?


1. Engine off, turn ignition key to RUN - do not start engine - make sure dashboard indicator lights come on

2. Put foot top of accelerator

3. Completely depress and release the accelerator TO THE FLOOR, THREE TIMES in rapid succession, within FIVE SECONDS - press release, press release, press release. Then wait a few seconds and the CHANGE OIL light should usually flash, sometimes accompanied by a few short beeps. Once it flashes it should disappear, and it should be reset.

Over an extended period of time gas will evaporate in a carburator. It's possible that presure is leaking off in your fuel pump as well. A weak pump will have trouble maintaining pressure over a period of time and will have trouble building pressure back up. Starting the engine on a regular basis and letting it run for a few minutes will cure the problem and help keep the engine seals from drying out and leaking. Converting to an electric fuel pump will also make it easier to start after sitting for a period of time.
Any generic LOW PRESSURE electric pump will work. It only needs to put out between 7 and 9 or 10 pounds pressure. Unhook the fuel lines from your mechanical pump and hook to the electric. The li ne from the tank goes on the inlet end. The electric pump usually ground through the case so it needs contact with bare metal or a wire running from the case to bare metal. Run the power wire to a powered wire in the engine compartment that powers on and off with the key or to an accessory fuse in the fuse box. It should run through a 20A fuse.
Hope this helps.

1998 town & country. It won't start again.


We had the same problem. It was the circuit board in the dash. There were crackes in one of the solder spots. My mechanic removed the dash and did a spot solder on the place with the cracks. It has worked for two months. It seems the solder spot was with a too cool of a solder when it was manufactured. Do it yourself or get your mechanic to fix the probem.
