Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

This van refuses to start. We replaced the starter, we thought that was the problem. The dash lights up, the heater kicks on and the relay makes clicking noises. The fuses are fine as is the battery. The oil is full. We have an autostart on the vehicle. It is turned off and it still refuses to start. Any help would be appreciated.
