Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
It sounds to me like you have a bad starter and that it may have stayed engaged with the flywheel. When you slowed the vehicle the starter may have still been in contact with the flywheel causing it to stall from the extra drag on the engine. Subsequently when you started it days later the starter may have still been engaged, but cooled off. It was all symptomatic of a bad starter. Now it has not only lost the battle to start the van, but gone as far as to join the other side. Current is still passing through the electrical system to power everything, but the starter is probably now locked up tighter than my grandma's coin purse. I hope that helps. Take the starter out and have it checked. Please rate any answers you may receive and leave a testimonial. Thanks for using Fixya.
