2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, 3.8L, 140,000 miles. Sputtered and stopped in traffic, would not crank.
All dash lights, windows, etc. work. NO error codes show on dash (I can't take it to an auto parts store to read code, because it won't start). Square frame around gear indicator on dash is gone.
out for a known good one, no luck. Traded starter relay for a known good one, no luck. Confirmed 12v at pin 86 on starter relay when key in start position. Can also hear the starter relay click. NO voltage at starter solenoid when key in start position. Engine will crank when jumped to solenoid.
Replaced neutral safety switch/transmission range sensor. Replaced transmission speed sensor.
Jumped contacts 30 and 87, starter spins. Grounded pin 85, starter spins on “start”. Replaced PCM, nothing – still no crank, still no box around gear indicator on dash.
