Chek the fuses in power distribution box under the hood or it may be a ground wire came loose (lights are on a different circuit ) on the engine

Ours kept blowing the 20 Amp "Engine" Fuse under the hood. Still havent figured out why (and it will get more frequent), but it should get you off the interstate. Always does that on turns, too. Weird indeed. Going to try and replace battery and clean it up since that seems to be the solution for clicking starter w/o turning over. Then I can check codes and see if I can find out why this happens. I assume you've trashed the car by now? If not then HOW DID YOU FIX THAT PERMANENTLY? :-)

Oil light on and beeps has a quart low on it 2000 dodge caravan


3 possibilities. Bad oil sending unit. Bad crank bearings. So much sludge in the engine that the oil can't get back to the oil pan fast enough, this will cause bad crank bearings. I would pull a rocker arm cover first. If it is full of sludge, put it back on and drive it till it dies. save money for another car. If it is clean, replace the oil sending sensor.

Wont turn over has new battery and starter


Add oil. Check your Brake lights. If they do not work, the problem with starting is the brake safety switch. You are required to put your foot on the brake pedal to start your car.

If the brake safety switch is broken or knocked loose of the holder on the brake pedal lever, you will not get the release signal to engage the starter.

2001 chrysler town & country oil light is on


If you are taking the car to the garage or a mechanic, mark the oil filter before leaving home to make sure the filter is changed. After the oil has been changed when you return home you can check the filter to see if it was changed because the oil will only be changed. Since some mechanics know an owner of a vehicle will not check. Also, AutoZone have a very good quality oil for the chrysler town and country. Good Luck

Bought a 1997 mercury sable today, guy said it needed a starter, charged dead battery and replaced starter. It fired right up, was driving it home it died, oil light, battery light, and check engine light...


Try checking the altenator. If the starter and battery were gimpy, the altenator may have a blown regulator too!. It sounds like there is a short in the system causing this problem. Most likely the altenator or component in the charging loop. WF

Engine sounded noisy & scratchy when i drove to school oil light on. Got back to car after 10 mins everything came on (radio etc) but when i went to turn it over everything just cut out like dead...


after the vehicle cooled completely and all the oil drained down it showed half full? that would mean it was anywhere from 2 to 2.5 quarts low? unless you mean that it showed halfway up the full / safe area on the dipstick.

the oil light being on usually means low oil or low oil pressure, if the vehicle still doesn't try to start after it is completely cool then you might have a locked up engine or multiple problems, check the oil again now that it has been sitting awhile look for water in the oil also check for oil in the water.

check battery connections again, make sure they are tight, if lights and such work then try to get a jump from someone. even new batteries can go bad

I would definitely be worried about that oil light though.

good luck and I hope this helps.

Oil relatied engine problem...maybe? need help


The clicking sound is from lack of oil or lack of oil pressure. When the lifters pump out then they have too much slack in them and thus the clicking or tapping sound. Sorry to say this, but the engine is either very tired or the oil pump has about had it.
