#194 of 227 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager, 200K, will not start, thinks there's no fuel
Jul 24, 2011 (8:26 pm)
I have a 1998 Ply G/Voy, 200K Miles on it, and it is not starting at this point.
Over the past couple of days, I would be driving down the road, and suddenly the van would think it had no fuel - fuel gauge drops to empty, fuel light comes on, and no fuel is going to the engine - then it picks up again. As my driving progresses, it happens with more frequency until I have to stop for a few minutes and let it rest - then it picks up again. This was Friday afternoon; Saturday morning, worked fine until the evening - and the same thing.
Today, it happened again - except now, the fuel pump is DEAD. I checked by turning the key and not hearing the characteristic sound of the fuel pump engaging briefly. Likewise, the fuel gauge is empty.
One point of note - I *just* had the fuel pump replaced back in May.
Any ideas on what's going on? Are there other symptoms to check for?

Hi, I to have a 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan that starts and doesn't stay running. It also has the Anti-Theft system like your vehicle. How is it running still, and where exactly is this red wire you are referring to at? Hope you get this and are able to help. Thank you. Question? When you would go to start the van up, did your instrument panel ( odometer, tach, etc..) light up at all? When mine didn't light up, or work, I knew it wasn't going to stay running.

OK, found the problem here. The issue is a loose connector for the wiring harness to the fuel pump under the car. My mechanic says he can replace it for the cost of an hour's labor, and this guy says he can do it better than the locking molex that connects the thing to power and the BCM.
Well, OK, it's either that or I have Firestone do it: $1300 for the wiring harness ALONE, plus the cost of labor (involves removing the ENTIRE dashboard to get it all).

Additional note - last symptoms are that it will get up to normal operating temperature before stalling out totally. By wiggling the connector, I can make it run - just don't know for how long though. Hopefully long enough to get 'er to the shop. =)

#200 of 227 1996 2.4 ltr Voyager stumble/misfire

MY wifes van developed a intermittent misfire at 2nd or 3rd gear. We would put it in neutral and rev the gas, this would temporarily ease the problem. This particular problem was mild and progressively got worse. The codes read a multifunction misfire. We replaced spark plugs and wires, fuel filter, map sensor, cam position sensor, crank sensor, throttle position sensor and coil pack. All connectors are brand new and dry. Our vans problem is still there. I am scratching my head and so are the techinicians I work with. We are at a dead end. The codes this morning now read 11, 37. It seems to be throwing multiple codes at different times. Is there any other avenues we could look at?

Hello I have a 96 caravan that starts then shuts down after 5 seconds. I have ran the codes and they say po736 reverse incorrect ratio, p1768 relays always off(stuck open). Does anyone have any direction in which to go to fix these problems or a web site that can help. Thanks

I have a 98 voyager that wont start. I have traced it down to no power is getting to the fuel pump. The only connector under the van is the one that connects directly to the fuel pump. Can you be more specific as to where the connector on your van is that is causing you trouble?
