Car Information:
Dodge Grand Caravan
Year: 1989
Engine Size: 6L
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
The car battery is good but frequently when I go to start the car the starter clicks as if I have a dead battery, after a few and sometimes several attempts it starts up without hesitation. Seems to act up more when the car is hot from running several short errands. Had the guys at auto zone hook up their meter which said the battery, alteranator and starter were all operating within proper ranges. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Answer:
It needs a starter! It has a bad spot or high resistance spot in the armature. When it lands on it after the starter quits spinning it wont allow the solenoid to engage and start the motor. Heat will cause the problem to get worse because it increases resistance.
