I replaced my starter for my van, but it still wont start, yet all the lights and windows work perfectly fine. what could it be?


Check your battery voltage. It may be enough to operate the accessories but not enough to start the engine. Use a volt meter on the battery or buy a plug in volt meter that can be used in the cigarette lighter. Auto stores sell them. The voltage reading should be a minimum 12 volts, if it drops below 10 volts while turning the ignition key, then the battery needs to be charged or replaced. Good luck!

I have a 1987 dodge raider 2.6 that won't start battery good starter good. Only getting 6 volts power to starter when key turned lights work buzzer ect....please help this is my teenage sons truck and he...


If you are only getting 6 volts from the battery to the starter it is only 1 of two things. The wire going from the battery to the starter is damaged or corroded and has to be replaced. Or the battery is no good. The battery may have 12 volts when you attach a voltmeter. Red on Red , Black on Black and this will make you think this battery is good as most people would.But when you apply a load to the battery the voltage may drop to the 6 volts therefor the starter when activated is now only receiving 6 volts which is not enough to start the engine. Have your battery loadtested and I will bet that this is the culprate

Turned over then it went dead no power at all, no lights nothing.


You possibly have a bad ground wire due to corrosion on battery cables. Remove both positive and negative cables from battery, inspect for corrosion and clean with a wire brush, then install with a corrosion block. Tighten both terminals as to leave no play. If you have any play and are able to move by hand then you will need to replace the terminals as you will not have a good connection and thus causing no power for engine starting and running.

Take off jumper cables it dies


You're alternator is dead. Once started the alternator should generate enough power by itself to keep the engine running.

Wont start,no sounds no power,completely dead


You will need a volt meter to figure this one out. Battery voltage? Should be above 12 volts, and while you are trying to "crank" the engine over, if it's still over 12, you need to see if that power is getting to the starter motor. If it goes below 9 or 10 volts, you either have a bad battery, or the starter motor is shorted, or bad.
To test the starter, you should have a large wire going to the starter that has 12 volts all of the time from the battery. A smaller wire will have 12 volts only when the key is turned to "start". If you have these and a good ground, the starter motor is bad.

1985 dodge powerwagon, lights went dim driving home now wont start, just replaced battery 6 months ago. starter clicked at first then nothing.


The alternator may not be charging the battery. Jump start it, and use a volt meter at the battery, red lead to positive and black to neg. The meter should read between 13 and almost 15 volts, any lower than 13 volts, the alternator is no good. (this is done with vehicle running).

Dodge d150 dim headlights when running and dies


you may have a bad alternator, bad battery, or simply dirty battery terminals.
Clean the battery terminal connections with a battery terminal brush and reinstall. Check to see if that helps your problem.
Usually this is an alternator problem. If the headlights get brighter when you rev the engine, then it's most likely the battery. But if the lights just get dimmer and dimmer, it's most likely the alternator. If the voltage gauge doesn't show proper voltage, 14 or more volts, alternator is probably the fault.
