02 T/C cranks but won't start after replacing battery


Asked by Jul 31, 2016 at 12:45 PM about the 2002 Chrysler Town & Country eL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I have a 2002 Chrysler Town & Country the
battery went bad, almost exploded, was smoking
and leaking acid, stopped let it cool down, added
water, the next day drove it straight to Walmart to
get a new battery, swapped batteries(they didn't
have the exact one the car was calling for just got
the closest 12v that would work) after swapping
batteries, everything was powered, the engine
would crank over but wouldn't start. At first after
reading a bunch of forums on here thought it was  
possibly the security causing it to not start, tried all
of the tricks to get it to start to no avail. It's getting
fuel, was getting fire at first, but now is not, trying
to borrow neighbors small diagnostic tester to
check for codes, other than that anyone have any
ideas? Thanks in advance!!!
