Customer Question

At seemingly random times my 2002 town and country will not start when turning the key. Right now after a few tried the can will start but I am of course worried about getting stranded. What is the most likely cause of this? When the key is turn various electronics come one such as the radio and a/c.

Thank you for using Just Answer.I will do my best to answer your question.I am assuming the car does not crank.The most likely problem is a bad starter solenoid.The starter will need to be replaced.

Would this explain it working some of the time? Like it will work fine for a couple of days and then it does not work but then it will work after a few tries of turning the key.
Expert:  SuperDave replied 2 years ago.
Yes that sounds like the starter.Bad contacts in the solenoid.That's what it does when it starts going out.

I have heard that one of the bolts is difficult to remove, the upper one actually. Having looked in the engine what I see is the bolt that has the electrical connection is this the same place as the upper bolt? if I understand it correctly i would need to use a deep socket to remove that upper bolt.

Yes you will need a deep socket to remove that bolt.
