#68 of 227 2007 Dodge Caravan Shit Lever-No Start
Nov 10, 2007 (6:36 am)
Hi every one!! I jsut bought a new 2007 Dodge Caravan SXT in late Oct. I have one problem that has only happened 4 times. When you drive it and say you stop at a store, put it in park, shut the key off and pull it out, lock it up and leave it....Fine so far, but when you come back and try to start it, it will not start?? Turning the key on, the dash lights up but the "PRNDL" shows that it is in "R" reverse and off coarse it will not turn over. Moving the shift lever, you can get the it to move through R-N-D-2 only, it will not show P or L?? We can put it into Neutral at this point to start the vehicle and drive away normally and the next time you stop and start it again it's fine?? Now I know we are putting it in park because you can't pull the key out unless it is park or neutral??
Has anyone ever seen or heard of this problem? I want to take it back to the dealer, but I know they are not going to find anything wrong unless it happens right there and then!! Like I say it has only happened 4 times so far and is more that likely to happen again, but we all know that things like this don't happen when you want them to!!
Thanks for any help!! Sorry if I have posted in the wrong place!!

I had it in to have the computer reflashed and they did not do it...seems they have found some problem and have to order some module for my van. When that comes in they will call and setup a new appointment. At that time they will also reflash!!
#73 of 227 99 Dodge Grand Caravan will not start

The other day my dad was on his way home and hit a deer with his 99 Dodge Grand Caravan, we decided that we would fix the damage ourselves since it wasn't too extensive. We had the damage fixed in a couple days, replacing the radiator, hood, side fender, air filter system, and the support that sits above the radiator, and it looks decent but won't start.......does anyone have any ideas? We've replaced the battery, and when the key is turned you can hear clicking in the fuse panel but the engine does not turn.....

Did you ever get this issue resolved? It's just that I have a 2005 SE with the exact same problem, I just did a tune up and seems to me that is getting progressively worse.
#75 of 227 Dodge caravan starting problem

I am not sure if the problem is fixed or not but since I disconnected the anti thief device,it has started.
I have had this van at the dodge dealer and it hooked up to the machine that tells what is wrong and it comes back nothing wrong.
When it doesn't run the anti theif light comes on and the van will run for a couple of min.then it dies right out as if someone is trying to steal it.
the Anti Theif divice is a add on and did not come with the van.I took the wire off that was wired into the fuse and as soon as I did that it started.
i sure hope this has helped you because this is driving me nuts.

Our 1990 Voyager will not start when it gets cold outside. There is no error message coming up. I simply will not start. The garage has scanned it but can't find anything wrong.
