Not enough info given. Does the starter turn? Does it engage the flywheel and actually turn the engine over? Does it only click and not turn over? Does it even click when the key is turned to the start position? I'm not sure about Chrysler products but some makes have an externally mounted starter solenoid (a fancy word for high-current relay). Some solenoids are mounted directly onto the starter motor and therefore a LOT harder to get to and much more difficult to replace. Yours also has a starter relay somewhere in an under hood fusebox. Whatever you do, DO NOT take a hammer and strike the starter!! That worked on a stuck bendix in OLD STYLE STARTERS. Newer starters have large magnets just under the casing that can so very easily be SHATTERED and completely destroyed by doing this. Old style starters were not made that way so you could hit them without doing damage to the internals. Typically this is how the whole starter action works: You turn the key to start & this closes the start circuit sending 12 volts either directly to a starter solenoid OR to a starter relay which in turn closes its contacts and sends 12 volts down to the starter solenoid which in turn engauges the bendix to thrust a pinion gear outward so it meshes with the flywheel teeth (a big metal plate bolted between the engine and transmission, makes the starter motor begin spinning to turn the engine over. This phase is known as "cranking". Starting is the next phase which occurs if the engine has compression, fuel & air (in the proper proportion), and spark. For example a engine having a bad ignition system may and most likely will crank over but will not be able to start. The part you got is for the ignition/fuel injection system, not the starting system.

96 jeep laredo stopped running gages quit and won't start even after replacing crank shaft sensor but it turns over like it wants to start

Crank sensor wont have any effect on starting, Cam position sensor would. Also check all your fuses.

1992 Ford Taurus wagon not starting, but turns over

You might have a problem with your crank sensor or ignition. Remove spark plug wire and check for spark while turning engine over. When this happens unplug crank sensor near crank pulley then plug back in to see if it starts if so replace crank sensor.

Car wont crank 1994 plymouth acclaim

Not sure what yor experiencing . Do you have crank no start or no crank no start? No crank no start is battery and cables issue. Crank no start is ignition , plugs, and fuel.

Light on dashbord for a 93 gramdam looks like a radiator with a arrow pointing down i put fluid in it but it doesnt go off

This is a coolant level warning light,and lets you know when the colant level is low,If you added fluid to the radiator and the coolant reservior and the light on then there is a fault with the senor its self.
the sensor will be located ether on the coolant reservior or the side of the radiator.
Check the side of the reservior to se if there is a sensor with some wires going to it,if so try unpluging the sensor and see if the light gos out,If its not there it will be on the end of one side of the radiator tank,it will be a 2inch square box with some wires going to it,Fallow the same thing- unplug wires and see if light gos out.
If the light gos out you will need to replace the sensor,or just leave unpluged and keep a watch on the coolant level.
