Did you cycle the key a couple times. Sometimes it needs to reset the computer after the battery dies. Also,try holding the gas pedal to the floor while turning over. This will help if flooded with gas from starting so many times.

1995 dodge caravan S.E. 3.3L doesn't want to start, then does and dies out (also pushing gas petal almost to the floor?????)


pushing gas pedal to near floor causes what is called clear flood fuction. if cranking engine with near full throttle the fuel injectors will not activate, assumes flooded engine and will not start.
most likely you have a very dirty throttle body. clean well with tooth brush and carb cleanr esecially were the throttle plate rests at idle, the plate and the wall of body. just a little carbon build up will cause a no start

2001 dodge caravan speedometer


it must have taken an over 12 volt hit,you will need to remove the dash assembly,the needle will move with gravity when not powered,have the dash assembly in your hands and facing you,then flip it over so the needle starts to fall then turn the dash to keep the needle going to zero.then reinstall.
Or if you plan on keeping this van for ever,
you can drill a small hole in plastic cover of dash and insert a small wire to guide the pin back to zero.

Speedometer stopped working while driving - no longer registers


This has happened on our van multiple times. Through some internet searches I have found a solution that works.

Go to your van and, with the ignition off, press and hold the trip reset button. You will see 'Sof' and perhaps some diagnostic test numbers will show up on odometer; the unit will perform a self-test, and the system will do a reset and should it should operate normally.

Cheers!

Doesnt want to run


This may be a pcm problem, but it really does sound like a fuel pump., except for the dash light issue. Your dealer is the best alternative at this point. They have all the tools and scanners that are specific to your vehicle. Probable only cost an hours diagnostic fee. Give them as much info as you can, and tell them what has already been done.
