#148 of 227 1998 Grand Voyager Staets when it wants to
Jun 02, 2009 (12:53 pm)
I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager that whenever it wants to (maybe a day to 4 weeks) the van will not stay running.
When this happens everything on the van works except the electronic mileage and trip meter will not light up.
The van starts and runs for about 5 seconds then stalls out it will restart then stall for about 5 times then it will not crank at all BUT everything else is ok IE:radio,lights ect.
When you let the van just sit as short as 10 minutes and sometime as long as overnight the next time you turn the key the electronic mileage and trip meter will light up like it is supposed to and the van starts and runs fine then the next time or maybe weeks later it will do the very same thing again
Every once in a while the electronic dashboard will flat line
It shows no error codes when running fine and of course it is never close to a repair station when it won’t start.

I have the same problem & for a couple of years I would some times be stranded for a week.thank goodness I am retired.Then my son heard about the same problem with another guy & he said to hit right above all the dials with your flat hand & it would start.
I have been doing this for over a year and it works every time.
I had taken my van intot he dodge dealer & different garages.
I sure hope this helps you.
Good Luck, Mery Manning.

I have a 2002 Grand Caravan and within the last month wants to stall when putting it into gear or going down the road it will jerk. Stalls at stop signs and red lights. But can't get to happen all the time. Finally took in to the Chrysler Dealership and they have no idea put it on computers and they cannot find what's wrong. They even got it to act up for them but are puzzled to what's wrong. I have 163,000 miles on it, otherwise it ran wonderful until recently. Never had any problems with it until now. Any ideas or if someone finds a fix let me know.

There are a few things that can cause this, knock sensor, crankshaft sensor or the camshaft sensor. Also could just be some bad electrical connections. I would start by disconnecting the connector from the knock sensor and see if that does the trick.
If you havent replaced the fuel filter I would do that as well.
#155 of 227 2001 caravan wont start
Jul 05, 2009 (7:09 pm)
I have a 01 caravan with a 2.4 engine. Back in April, we were having problems with the van not starting until it cranked 4 or 5 times. We replace all 4 spark plugs and it started fine until 3 weeks ago. It started not cranking right away again. As the days went on the worse it got. One day it would not start at all. Figured out that there was no spark. So I replaced the ignition coil, wires, and all the plugs (again). The van started right up and ran great. I started it 4 or 5 times and it fired everytime. After it cooled alittle my wife took it to the store and when she came out it would not start again. So I checked for a spark again, everything was good there. I also checked to make sure the ignition coil connector was good and it was fine. After talking to a mechanic he mentioned replacing the cam and crank sensors. So I did! Again it started right away. After it cooled again it wont start again. When it does run, it runs great, no codes, no rough idle, no stalling. I just bought some injector cleaner tonight and put it into the gas tank. But iam running out of options. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I really dont want to replace a bunch of parts that doesn't solve the problem. Iam thinking fuel filter, injector(s), fuel pressure regulator, wiring problem...etc. I do have a 2 inch slice in my cat and have replaced both O2 sensors withing the last 3 months.

Pull the plug on the Knock Sensor. See if that does the trick. Next go to the fuse box in the engine compartment, take out each fuse and relay and plug back in. If you still have the problem then go to the fuse box again and remove a few screws and flip it up side down, pull all the connectors and put back in. These wont cost you anything. Let me know how you make out. ronehrmannverizon.net
