Customer Question
Hello, I have an '06...
Hello, I have an '06 Chrysler Pacifica that takes many tries to start. No dimming of lights, brand new battery, makes click sound with each turn, but that's it. No sound like it's trying to start. Originally happened occationally and took a couple tries. Now happens every time and sometimes takes 10+ times to finally start. Never any stalling problems when driving. Only starting problem.

Hello. This sounds like a failing starter solenoid which is part of the starter assembly.

Would you like the procedure to replace that?

Chrysler Mechanic: AZTechBrian, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Check all the cable connections before doing anything to make sure this isn't a problem with a bad connection and let me know if you happen to find anything loose. When it's acting up, try tapping the starter solenoid with the key turned to the crank position and see if it suddenly starts to crank.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
