I have a 2003 Dodge Caravan with a 3.3L it wont start or even turn over. Run test on electrical system found ignition signal to relay found power supply to the relay and ground to the relay. When I jumped the power to the starter circuit on relay starter would not engage. tested underneath the hood fuse box found no power coming out of the fuse box to starter unplugged the connecter from under the fuse box applied power to the yellow and gray starter wire starter engaged I replaced the under the hood power management module fuse box vehicle started up fine ran fine no lights no codes no nothing turn vehicle off let it sit for two hours start vehicle up backed out of drive way vehicle killed started would not engage. My question is this they have a silver box that plugs into the front of the power management fuse box relay is this box a starter relay module? I am having a starter engagement problem not a running problem.

How do i install electrctrical portion of ignition switch for my 2003 dodge intrepid


Hi Robert, I'm glad to help. Here's how to remove and replace the Ignition Switch on your 2003 Dodge Intrepid. FIRST: remove the steering wheel shaft covers that rest over your ignition swtch. Once the covers are removed you now have access to the screws that hold the ignition switch in place. NOW: unplug the electrical connector, then take out the screws that hold it in place. NEXT: You'll need to turn the key to the proper position to release the switch while pulling the switch backward. Once its out install the new one and your done. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Robert.

2002 dodge caravan wont start wont turn over battery and starter good


My 2003 dodge caravan would not start after driving about 1/2 hour. I stopped for coffee and when got back in to start it started I switched gears and it stalled. I tried to start again switched gears then it started but only for 2 sec. No clicking, no cranking sound just would not start but battery functions were great. Spent 2 days with a mechanic who could not resolve so sent to Dodge. After a day of putting wires back and checking out the problem they said it was the computer. Said that it was bad and could be replaced at no charge due to malfunction. Yes, it worked fine afterwards no more problems. They also said that some of the computers are found to be defective like this one so I hope this helps you in the right choice to have the dealer check it out if you are unable to get a computer reading and there is no obvious short in the system. Free sounded very good but as you know there is no such thing as really free as they got me for other things $350 worth. ouch!

01 dodge grand caravan driver side door wont unlock, something to do with gas cas door. checked gasdoor still wont un lock....HELP!!!!!!!!!!! think it may be a relay or some type of elec problem...


Ok get in car. close all doors. Put key in ignition cycle key four times on & off. DO NOT START. Within 10 seconds of the final cycle, press the drivers door lock switch to the lock position. If you here a single chime you have reprogrammed the power door locks. This can be done of throught the EVIC system if the van has the system. If problem does not go away lock motor is bad

I have a 98 dodge caravan and when i put the key


You may have to get a new key cut if the tumblers in the ignition lock are not being lined up to unlock the ignition. If the key's was bent in the ignition lock, the ignition lock may be bad and need to be replaced with a new ignition key. Try replacing the ignition key's first, but if you have a spare key. Try that first and if the spare key's don't turn the ignition lock, then you may have to replace the ignition lock. Good luck and keep me posted. oh and try moving the steering wheel left to right as you try to turn the ignition lock.

No power to electrical accessories after starting ignition


YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE IGNITION SWITCH, NOT THE KEY CYLINDER BUT THE ELECTRICAL SWITCH THE KEY OPERATES.
