  1. Intermittent Starter Issues on 2008 3.8L T&C

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Hi, I've been having some strange starter issue on my 2008 T&C with 3.8L (137k miles). I've read through some of the threads and this one just doesn't seem to fit with some of the common issues or maybe I just don't "see the trees through the forest." When I turn the key to start the vehicle...
  2. Is it the ignition switch, starter or something else?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I have other issues going on with my '96 3.3L 400K+miles but now the starter will not turn over. I have two questions: Question 1: According to the wiring diagram, 12V go to the ignition switch via a 12Red wire. Wire tests good. Once the ignition switch is moved to start, a 12YL wire should...
  3. 2010 Keeps cranking after starting.

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    My van keeps cranking after it starts. If you turn it off and try again it will sometimes start normally and sometimes it will do the same thing. Am I looking at a starter, ignition switch, or something else?

    I need to replace the starter solenoid contacts in my 2005 Town and Country with the 3.8L engine. Is it necessary to pull the starter in order to change the contacts? Thanks in advance for any ideas on this.

  6. Starter swap lessons

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I learned a few lessons during today's remove/replace of the starter in my '99 GV 3.8 1. The solenoid connector is a PIA. There is a little red tab that must be pulled away from the solenoid, then the top of the connector must be pushed down to enable it to be removed. Had to look online to find...

    I have a 2002 T&C LXi 3.8L 6cyl, a little over 160,000. We've never had any major problems in the 4 years we've had it.

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    The issue started with the engine occassionally not starting. After a jump start, it seemed fine for a week or so. Then it started to occur more frequently. We have had the battery and alternator checked, OK. After the last time it wouldn't start, I charged the battery. After 2 hours, I...

  15. Can I Bench Test My PCM? 2003 T&C

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I have been chasing a no crank condition. I am not getting the ground from the PCM to the coil (# 85) on the starter relay. I also was not getting ground to the coil on the automatic shut down relay (# 85) on that relay either. I discovered a blown fuse, #17 20 amp for the ASD relay. As soon...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I have a 2004 T&C. For about a year, the car has been having intermittent starting problems. I had the starter replaced a year ago by a non-dealership mechanic. Last fall, it again would not start on an intermittent basis. The shop that replaced the starter did so again without doing much...
  17. No Starter

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    We've been having a problem with our 98 Voyager intermittently not starting. I've been reading posts on the problem and a few sound like a similar problem. At first I thought it might be low battery, bad positive post connection. Cleaned and reseated terminals. Everything seems to come on. The...

  19. 2001 T&C 3.8L won't start

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My '01 T&C (w/ 3.8L) suddenly fails to start. Won't even crank over. I thought it was the battery (battery was 3 mo. old, but took back to store and they said it had a dead cell). Put new battery in, still wouln't crank. Next logical thought is the starter. Fought to replace the starter today...
