Be very careful when using the hammer technique to check your starter. Some of the starters have internal parts that can be damaged by the blow from the hammer.

Make sure all your terminals are clean. Take each one off and clean out any corrosion on both battery and cables with wire brush and water/baking soda mix.

Take your battery, and (if you don't mind pulling it) the starter to the local bigger name parts store to get tested. They will be able to tell you if they are ok, or not. IF the battery is dead, or has a dead cell, then go to SAMs, and buy an Optima red top battery. I swear by these batterys, and put them in all of my vehicles. My last one took 5 years, before showing any signs of voltage drop. If you do the math, the Optima battery is cheaper in the long run. Anyways, if you don't want to pull the starter, try hitting it one good time with a hammer, and try starting the van. If it starts, then you need a starter, because the internals are shot on your existing one. (not from the hammer hit) LOL

Blinking redlight over temp gauge on 2006 grand caravan sxt


This light warns of an overheated engine condition. If the engine is critically hot, a continuous chime will sound for 4 minutes. After the chime turns off, the engine will still be critically hot until the light turns off. does the symbol look like a thermometer? of so, that is what is is. If it's just a dot blinking, it's the security system. Does that help?
