I've read the parts you replaced but have not read one single word about the diagnostics that lead you to replace these parts. Have you run a electronic system fault code test on the engine control computer (called the PCM)? Has the fuel pressure been tested? To check if you have a fuel problem get a can of Spray starting fluid from the local auto parts store, pull the flexible air intake hose off the engine and spray in the starting fluid in while someone cranks over the engine, if it starts you have a fuel pump problem. To run a fault code test you will need a tool called a "OBD2" code reader, they can be bought at any auto parts store, the most basic models cost about $40.00, they connect to a data port connector under the dash in front of the steering wheel, see picture below.

    The Ignition control module in the van is contained in the power train control module (PCM), but at this point without having a factroy scanner that can "Tap" into the data coming and going from the PCM it just a guessing game, this need to go to a shop that has this type of equipment.

2005 dodge grand caravan wont start it cranka over


Hate to tell you but most likely your timing chain either broke or slipped, it could be cam or crank or both sensor

Won't Start


Pull a spark plug wire and check for spark. Just take a spare, working spark plug and put it on a plug wire (or take a plug out of your engine), and ground the plug hex or the plug threads on a metal piece of the engine. Now the plug is grounded, so you won't get shocked when checking for spark. But just in case, wrap a heavy rag around the wire, or use a glove to hold it, and watch the spark jump the electrode while someone is cranking the engine. A good ignition system will have a blue, snapping spark. If you have no spark, check a second wire, and still nothing, then the ignition system needs checked-the coils, ignition module, and crank position sensor, and so on. An orange or yellowish spark is also a sign of ignition problems.
If you do have spark when checking, then check if fuel is reaching the engine-the schraeder valve on the fuel rail is the test port for a fuel pressure gauge. Really what you need is to check fuel pressure, but if you punch the center pin on the valve, and gas squirts out, then you know gas is up to the injectors and under some pressure.

Could be the fuel pump or pump relay going bad.To check relay simply replace it with another.It also could be the crank sensor or cam sensor.

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan will crank but won't start.


Hi, if an engine cranks but refuses to start, it lacks ignition, fuel or compression. When the engine cranks normally but won't start, you need to check ignition, fuel and compression. Ignition is easy enough to check with a spark tester or by positioning a plug wire near a good ground. No spark? The most likely causes would be a failed ignition module, distributor pickup or crankshaft position (CKP) sensor.

Test at the spark plug if you are getting current there with a cheap spark plug tester, if not, it could be the spark box. ( it used to be an ignition coil on older cars ) double check the computer for codes which may lead to a cam sensor not giving the PCM information.

I HAVE A 2005 DODGE CARAVAN I WAS GOING DOWN THE ROAD AND IT JUST STALLED. THE FUEL PUMP COMES ON BUT THE ENGINE DOESNT START..


If you have good fuel pressure. Check for spark at any plug while cranking, If no spark, also place a screw driver on an injector and listen to it while someone cranks it over. If you have NO spark and NO injector click - crank sensor needs to be replaced. 95%
other 5% hmmm wiring problem on / near crank or cam sensors, theft system active, dead pcm.......

Car cranks but won't start. Diagnostic code says


I changed all the parts I mentioned and finally I decided to try the crank shaft sensor and if that didn't work I was going to replace the cam shaft sensor. Luckily the crank shaft sensor worked but only after I replaced all the other parts. But at least now it finally started.

Thsank you.
