The starter solenoid brushes are burnt, this causes the issue you describe, the solenoid is rebuildable, check on line for parts.

Sometimes it will start and sometimes it doesnt

Sure sounds like an electrical contact problem. Did you also clean the contacts. If the connection is tight but the contact is oxidized or dirty, it will still have high resistance. There is a lot of current flowing when you are starting and you need clean tight contacts. Once the bad contact arcs, it will make the problem worse and then you lose power. I guess you can never discount the fact that it could be internal to the battery as well. Next time it is dead, don't touch anything. Leave it dead and just measure the voltage across the battery terminals. Measure directly on the terminal, and not the connector. Hope this helps.

Wont start truck tried new battery also taken to machanic and they dont know......beeps like its starting but wont start vehical..prostart car starter

Check all your starter wires. Make sure they are all tight. Then If you can see the two posts on the starter solenoid (not the starter) jump them with a screwdriver. If starter engages it could be an ignition swich.

First you will need a transponder bypass modual for a 2001 dodge caravan with MUX output, if your ignition key is grey, you may also need a total of 6 resistors for this van depending on what features you want and at least 2 relays, then just follow the install diagram, if you run into ant problems you know where to find me, I have done dozens of thses vans so I know what will be required, if you need the bypass modual or any of the 6 resistors let me know

Sometimes it starts, sometimes it needs to get hammered!

I think I'd replace the battery cables, starter solenoid, both inexpensive and dumb question... any chance starter has bad connection where it is bolted to block. If it's not getting a good clean connection it can lose continuity. Good luck.
