I have a 97 grand caravan 3.8 - I replaced my fuel pump and filter still won't start. It cranks but will not start. I've replaced coil, plugs, wires, and computer. All relays and fuses are good. Ignition switch checked out ok. I have power from the battery to the pcm but no power to the coil. pcm was replaced three times, does anyone know what could be wrong?

could you have a bad igition wire or a broken wire some
where else. I lost the wire from the coil to the distrbutor after drinving about 200 miles and could not get to restart in the driveway. had it towed and they claim all they was put on a new wire from the coil to distributor

maybe it is in the igination some where

98 Dodge Grand Caravan will click & not start. I have checked the starter relay switch & replaced it with the spare.

try having someone turn the ignition key and you hit the starter with a hammer if it works you need a new starter because your selinoid is dead
