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.

Our 1995 Dodge caravan starts fine dies.


Do the following

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

Van dies while at a stop sign or light won't start back until moved manually


take a little time to check the air/fuel filters and spark plugs if you have not done so in a long time. all of those things will cause the van to stall at light or stop sign. replace all items that need replaceing. a little service work will keep your van running for a long time.

'92 Dodge Caravan low speed stall.


Try cleaning the throttle body. Buy a can of throttle body cleaner, on newer cars you shouldn't use carb cleaner. But given the age of your van the protective coating on the throttle body has probably worn off anyway so if you already have a can of carb cleaner use it. Just buy a can of silicone spray to lubricate and prevent the TB from getting getting gummed up to quickly. Also check the EGR valve as it causes a lot of stalling problems on Caravans. Vacuum test the diaphragm and remove and clean the port and EGR plunger. You should replace the fuel filter if hasn't been replaced in a while. The transmission torque converter lock up solenoid might be sticking too. Just have the computer codes scanned as the EGR valve and lock up solenoid should turn on the check engine light.

99 dodge ram 1500 ac problem


recharge your system, it;s low on refrigerat, there is not enough liquid going into the evap to help maintain cooling, hence the speed of the compressor. install gauges to check pressures at idle, if not to spec , recharge. if it's low you have a leak to repair. also make sure your AC condenser is clear. GOOD LUCK. RDJRP

1998 Dodge Ram Dies at times when I let off the gas and stop


I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.9 liter in it, i couldnt keep it running when i stopped at stop signs, the two things i tried, was taking off the air cleaner and sprayed carb cleaner into the intake manifold with the engine running, using the carb cleaner and the throttle linkage to keep it running, before i did this i noticed the throttle valves were dirty, so I inspected the air filter housing and saw it was cracked in multiple places. The second thing i did was reset the computer using a scanner then took my truck out on the highway and drove at least 50 MPH for at least a mile which re-learned the computer. I hope this helps you, it sure worked for me.
