1991 Dodge Caravan Q&A

1991 Dodge Caravan Question: help please

all the power in my van works it makes no sounds when i try to start it. no clicking or anything. it was driving fine. the shocks were going bad but i dont think that has to do with it, if its the starter what do i do? -
Answer 1
Sounds like a dead battery as a battery with one bad cell will still power some items but won't have the amps to engage the starter, Have the battery tested at your local auto parts store -
Answer 2
you might try replacing lock tumbler on ignition. I just had a similar problem w/89 ford 1.8L. I replaced the key switch and then replaced lock tumbler only to find out I didn't need to replace the key switch. sometimes a person can learn from experience too, even bad ones. I also had full power to everything but nothing when I turned the key. Once I replaced the lock tumbler(which keeps the key in the "on" position) then It started right up, w/full battery, and all lights and instrument panel worked as well. It's a cheap and easy do it yourself fix. -
