Van does not have a cold start sensor, but it does have a coolant temp. sensor the only way to read the data is with a scanner, it can be tested with a DVOM but the sensor is cheep if you think it is bad just replace it if you are wrong your not out much and could save a diagnostic charge.

2000 Grand Caravan cranks but doesn't run. If I bypass the automatic shut-down relay it'll run for about 3 seconds, but starts surging and conks out. Both the cam & crank position sensors test okay....


the pcm energizes that relay. should be a dark blue wire with a yellow stripe going from pcm pin 67 to pin 8 on power dist center. check all fuses then check wire. Is the check engine light on with key on? Possible bad pcm.

My 2000 Dodge Caravan will not start


Sounds similar to my old 94 dodge ram. Battery died at least I thought, replaced it and truck would not turn over. After about three hours of playing around I start checking all my wires and connections any loose wires I tighten or replaced if they looked worn or bad. And I found a ground wire was not connected to frame it came loose. Tightened it and hooked battery up and it started.

Possible bad cold start valve or the sensor that tells the valve to activate when cold. Start by replacing the cold start valve first.

I have a hard time starting my 2000 dodge caravan. It will turn over but the wont start right away, I have to hold the key for several seconds before it will start. Is this a fuel pump issue?


You may download the system when the engine is not used too long you might have problem with the coolant sensor that sends a signal to the PCM when the engine is cold to inject more fuel. Thanks

My 1997 Dodge Caravan 3.3 engine starts and stops


you need to have the engine coolant switch checked,since the computer relies solely on sensors,the ect tells the computer how cold or hot it is so the computer will make it a rich or lean mixture to start the engine,if it tells the computer that it is 75 degrees the computer will lean the mixture like starting a car in the winter without a choke.

98 Dopdge Caravan won't start when temperature around freezing . When outside temperature rises one or two degrees it will start on first try


The coolant temperature sensor will report the engine temperature to ECM so it can send signal to open the cold start valve. If the sensor is not reporting correct temperature, the ECM won't tell the cold start valve to open for extra fuel to start hence the car is not start. Replace the coolant temperature sensor will take care of the symptom.

2001 Dodge Caravan SE 2.4L.. In cold Weather it starts then stalls and dies...?


Inlet air temperature sensor, also known as throttle body temperature sensor, will do that. Don't go changing TPS, or IAC, as suggested in other post. If they work good in warm weather, they should do the same in cold. Air inlet sensor tells system how much fuel to deliver according to temperature, as engine needs more fuel the colder it is when starting.
