Customer Question

name: ***** ***** baucom, Belmont, 28012, 2006 dodge caravan SE. makes no noise when trying to start. battery is o.k. would it logically be a starter or alternator, or what else. Thanks, dmb
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Our car is home, so cannot get it to our mechanic with having it hauled there. He was the one who mentioned about the alternator or starter, since he wasn't able to see it. Battery is o.k. Had it checked. Do you know if it could be something else if engine not turning (and making no sound when trying to recharge). Any idea on it?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dodge Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site. *** A BAD RATING HAS NO BEARING ON ANY DEPOSIT YOU MADE *****


More likely the starter, rather than the alternator. However, it is possible that it is in the trans range sensor. Can you run power to the starter to see if it will turn the engine?

Engine will not when turning key.

I suppose it will be better to tow Caravan to Mechanic. I'll ask him to check the starter first. Then I'll purchase right item from "Whitney". I appreciate your help. dmb
