2004 Dodge Caravan won't start...just a clicking noise...

I have a 2004 dodge grand caravan that has working dome lights, headlights etc. However, twice now, it has crapped out on us. It just makes a clicking noise when you turn the key. Need the van for handicapped child! Could this be a battery or alternator problem? HELP!

Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.

The body control module seems to be the culprit here. Have it tested or replaced.

2004 grand caravan some dome lights stay on rest shut off normally


Is there perhaps a problem with the dome light switch on the lift gate? Close all the doors, open only the lift gate and find the switch on the lift gate frame (usually a rubber covered "bump") and press it in. You might have a loose wire shorting against the bodywork or the door is not depressing the switch properly.

2007 Dodge Caravan won't start.Batt. is good, all lights work, Turn key, solenoid clicks and stops, all gauge needles slowly move to max., and return to min. No codes displayed.


When you try to start it do the lights dim way low, have you been able to start it with a jump from another vehicle, unfortunately, chances are the starter needs to be replaced. How many miles does it have?

My 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan: The courtesy dome lights don't light properly, only very dim. I have not been able to identify what the cause is. Other interior lights work properly.


Remove the IOD fuse and leave out overnight this will reset the BCM and probably resolve the diming light and the dome light issue, I had the same prob in my 2006 Grand Caravan.

I have a 2004 Dodge Grand caravan that won't start. (60,000 miles) I hear a clicking noise and my gauges go "crazy" when I turn the key. (Speedometer goes from 0-120 and back to zero when I turn...


Sounds like a classic case of a dead battery. It takes much less energy to sweep the gauges and turn on the lights than it does to crank the engine over. The clicking noise is usually your starter solenoid trying to engage and spin the starter. Try a new battery. Happy motoring.

Good luck.
