1992 Dodge Stealth Starting Problem

I have replaced both the battery and the starter but when I turn the key all I get is a click. Could the ignition switch be the problem?

    I have a 91 r/t stealth and I have the same problem. I have replaced both starter and battery numerous times, when I change the starter, it works great and then out of nowhere, it starts to come back. I just tried starting it like 5 minutes ago, and now, this is a new one, I have alittle smoke coming out of my air intake. i'm ready to buy a rebiult engine and start fresh.

It could be a problem that you can test quickly. You'll need someone to turn the ignition switch for you while the car is raised so that you have access to the starter. There is 1 small wire going to the solenoid from the ignition switch, it controls when the starter engages & is only supposed to light when the Ignition switch is in the start position. If when the key is in the start position you have voltage there, the switches are all working. By switches I mean the Ignition switch and one of these depending on the type you have.

There is a neutral safety switch on automatic trans. & a clutch safety switch on manual transmissions, but those are the only safegaurds betweeen the ignition switch and the solenoid.

While you're under the car, if the solenoid wire is getting power, test the bottom large lead going into the starter & see if it's got power. If so and the starter isn't turning, you either have a bad starter or some bad connections in the starting system.

Make sure the terminals and both post are clean & protected with a good coat of grease or vaseline. You should always remove the Neg.(-) cable to disconnect the power supply and prevent sparking or shorting while working on the wiring or charging the battery.

You would want to just check all of your connections next, even a bad ground wire going to the block could be causing the problem. I believe you will find a main ground and a minor ground wire on the transaxle assy, one specifically on a bellhousing bolt and those grounds need to have clean contact.

good luck.

Won;t crank


Hi, if the car engine fails to crank, there is a fault in one of the components in the battery/ignition/starter circuit. Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger). Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay). Bad ignition switch (Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace ignition switch if defective).

Car won't start with key. I get all power when I turn key to access. but when I turn key to crank position all I get is a clicking noise. Car can be push started with clutch.


Check battery, battery cables, including the cables of the starter. Check starter relay, neutral safety switch and lastly the starter itself.
