    Default 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan still won't start!

    My Minivan have always worked pretty good without any trouble. Last night
    after dropping someone off from work my battery light came on. I drove it
    the rest of the 20 minute drive home and it was fine. I went back out 5
    minutes later to pick up a kid from school game and the van would NOT
    start for anything. I doubt it has anything to do with this, but I do
    want
    to mention that I ran over a small "V" shaped metal pipe in the road on
    the
    way to bring that person to work last night, just in case that might
    possibly have something to do with this problem. When we try to start it,
    you can hear it turning over, and you can hear a steady ticking noise.
    All
    lights come on fine. My hubby did say that the radio keeps coming in and
    out though like it's not getting a good signal. (Just thought I'd add
    that
    as you never know what detail might be important.

    The starter and cylonoid (sp?) are combined on my model and this morning
    we took it off the van and went and had it tested. They said it was still
    working but turning slower than it ought to. So we bought a new one for
    $140 and just got it on the van and it is still doing the exact same
    thing. My hubby has a small battery charger and it shows the battery is
    fully charged. I also have a full tank of gas as I filled it up the
    previous day, so I know the gas gauge is not faulty.

    Please help!

    Why would you replace the starter before having the battery load tested?
    Chances are the battery is no good with a shorted cell. How old is the
    battery?

    I would check to see if you have spark and fuel (getting to the injectors).

    Get the battery tested. Just because the generic testor at home says it is
    charged, does not mean it is a good battery. It probably is shorted out.

    And make sure the cables clamp/screw on to the battery tightly, with no
    corrosion on either the battery or the cable end. Loose &/or corroded
    battery connections can cause all kinds of problems, not the least is
    insufficient current to get it started...

    well she did say that the battery light came on so that is an
    indication that the alt went bad so i would have that checked to

    neck.

    "You will see clearly, also, the cowardliness and unmanliness of
    this law, inasmuch as it sacrifices women to men, the weak to the
    strong; that it deprives the woman of all that she has in life, of
    liberty, character, law, even of life itself (for it is a process
    of slow murder to which she is subjected), for the supposed
    benefit of men who are mean enough to avail themselves of this
    provision of lust.

    "Besides being grossly unjust, as between men and women, this law
    is a piece of class legislation of an extreme kind. The position
    and wealth of men of the upper classes place the women belonging
    to them above any chance of being accused of prostitution. Ladies
    who ride in carriages through the street at night are in no danger
    of being molested. But what about working women? what about the
    daughters, sisters and wives of working men, out, it may be, on
    an errand of mercy at night? and what, most of all, of that girl
    whose father, mother, friends are dead or far away, who is
    struggling hard, in a hard world, to live uprightly and justly
    by the work of her own hands,--is she in no danger of this law?
    Lonely and friendless, and poor, is she in no danger of a false
    accusation fro

    and at the moderate reckoning that they are worth three
    thousand dollars each, that represents six million dollars in capital;
    and at the present time the Japanese traffic is more threatening
    to the United States than the Chinese, with which alone this book
    deals.[A]

    [Footnote A: When we undertook the task of writing this book we
    intended to include in it also a representation of the Japanese
    slave-trade, but have been obliged to desist for want of space.]

    In these latter days, when everything in the business line tends to
    take on the form of trusts and combines, bent on defeating all law and
    exploiting the common people for gain, it casts a shadow of gloom over
    one's spirits to think of capitalists entering so largely upon the
    active culture and development of vice for pecuniary profit. This can
    no longer be looked upon as an evil due to the frailty of human nature
    and the strength of the sex appetite; it is rather the expression of a
    greed for gold, and should be actively combated as such. The owners
    of property, especially those who have a monopoly in the matter o

    what you think. I don't wish to seem to intrude, but I know the man's
    reputation as to temper, and I cannot bear to think of his having a
    chance to treat you rudely." We thanked her heartily, and promised to
    be doubly careful.

    We knew the place. A very imposing Government building standing apart
    by itself, upon which much money had been expended to give it a fine
    appearance. We were soon ushered into the presence of the man who held
    the same relation to the work at Singapore that John Lee holds, or at
    least held the last we knew, at Hong Kong. Will you believe us, when
    we tell you that to our amazement it was that same white-haired old
    man to whom we had been introduced at the church gathering as such an
    active Christian, "working along much the same lines as ourselves, and
    at the head and front of every good work in the Colony?" To be sure we
    had heard the name of this Inspector, but we had never in our remotest
    conception connected it with the man the Doctor had introduced to us.
    Concealing our surprise we sat down for a few moment's interview. The
    man knew his lesson "like a book." We could have prompt

    at several different legislatures during a single year. They
    are in operation, to some extent at least, under the United States
    flag at Hawaii, in the Philippines, and at Porto Rico. The enforcement
    of the Acts must depend to a large extent upon the co-operation of the
    male fornicator with the police and officers of the law, and places
    good women and girls terribly in the power of malicious or designing
    libertines.

    It appears from official records, that in Hong Kong, during six months
    in 1886-7, out of 139 women denounced by British soldiers and sailors
    as having communicated contagion, 102 were on examination found free
    from disease, and only 37 to be diseased; and during a similar
    period in 1887-8, out of 103 women that were denounced, 101 were on
    examination found free from disease and only two diseased. We can
    judge from this of both the worthlessness of the measure for tracing
    diseased women, and the mischievousness of the measure as an aid to
    libertines in getting girls they are endeavoring to seduce so injured
    in reputation that they can easily capture their prey.

    As a sanitary measure, the Acts have invariably proved a failure, as
    shown by honestly handled statistics. There have, to be sure, been
    many doctors, some of high scientific qualifications, who have
