This may seem like a stupid question, but is the battery hooked up correctly.

Is the battery charged to have 12 Volts

Some more info would be helpful to get a better answer

Good Luck

Why would an 2005 Town and country van with a 3.8 engine start and sound/run good for a couple of seconds and then starts missing real bad.


Crankshaft position sensor maybe , throttle position sensor , coolant temp. sensor etc.... It could be a lot of thing's . Instead of buying this part an that part ,take it an have it diagnosed . To a good ASE certified repair shop . Unless you like buying unneeded parts .

Possible electrical problems


check battery terminals and posts are shiny clean and tight. Check earth wire from battery is tight on the engine or block. Check for loose fusible link.. The problem Is the main power lead from the battery has an intermittent connection. If the battery is not off the shelf new but a friends new battery then have it load tested for a faulty bridge or cell

I need to jump start our second vehicle using the Montana van. I can't find the negative battery terminal to connect to.


Typically next to the battery, there will be a terminal looking plug on the shock mount. That is where you will attach the negative for jump starting the vehicle. Basically, you just need to ground out the wire somewhere, so when they built the van, they included a perfect ground.

I have an 89 astro van, Would not start so I put a battery charger on it and It started. Took it to a auto parts store and had the battery checked out and the guy said it was bad,so I took it to walmart...


Hi,
a few problems that it might be.
1. I am guessing you checked for 12 volts at the starter motor end of the thick red cable that runs from the positive terminal of your battery?
2. The solenoid on your starter motor is "engaged" by applying a smaller current of 12 volts from a starter relay which is activated by your ignition key circuit.
3. Is there a good connection between your batteries negative terminal and the car chassis?
4. I guess you did not reverse connect the battery terminals as there would have been some bad consequences already.
For a good explanation of how the starter system works see here:

Feel free to ask me some more questions.

Regards,Steve

I pulled my van into a friends house yesterday, turned off the engine and then lost power to everywhere. Nothing works anymore and of course won't start up


First off check the fuses under the dash. And make sure battery terminal connections are tight and clean.Check for proper tension (roughly 1/2 inch of deflection) on Alternator belt and that belt is present.Sounds like there is a alternator issue.Did your battery light come on while driving? Have a friend jump start you (follow safe jumpstart procedures or you could damage your friends car or yours ie:Ignition key off,Postive cable goes on first when attaching cables,negative cable comes off first when discconnecting cables. Let charge for 15 min or so before trying to start your vehicle ) If it starts look for a battery light on the dash. If no battery light is on then alternator is probably ok and battery is bad (take it out and have it tested at your local autoparts store). If the light is on then you have an alternator problem.To confirm alternator problem check output voltage across battery terminals. Should be min 13.5-14.5 no more than 14.5 If you have to replace the Alternator make sure battery is good and has a full charge and negative batt. cable is disconnected,if not you could potentially ruin you r new alternator
