I have a 2000 Chrysler Town and Country with 3.3L V6. Have not had any real problems in the past. A few days ago, was driving on the highway. The vehicle began to lose power, the speedo guage surged randomly, the oil light came on, and the vehicle stalled. I have not been able to get it started since. Thought maybe the alternator went bad and drained the battery. Put new battery in to no avail. When the ignition switch is turned on, there is no click from the starter solenoid (also new), only the oil idiot light stays on (the oil level is fine). When trying to start, you can hear the relays engaging. Tried to swap the one for the starter, thats not it either. Engine code reader shows only an error trying to read them. Any ideas what to check next?.

  1. Check for positive at the starter “S” terminal with the key in the “start” position. If you see power, replace the starter. If you do not see power, trace the wiring back to the relay, neutral switch, fuses, ignition switch. Since you replaced the battery, make sure you hooked all back up and double check your fuses.
    You may want to visit the “wiring diagrams” tab to your left.
