Hi my name is Allen!

When this happens it means you have a sending unit bad, what happens is the unit burns up in a certain area and when the contacts reach that area then there is no contact so the needle on cluster drops to zero.

You need a new fuel sending unit, the bad news is the gas tank will need to be taken out of the vehicle to repair this problem.

For further assistance reach me at FixYa!

2003 dodge caravan will not start. Makes a clicking noise, and dash shuts off, then makes a humming sound.


im going to say an almost dead battery .the hum you hear might be the fuel pump.you never heard it before because the van normaly starts .so boost your van if it starts you may have to replace the altenator the guages, no worries many cars do that .thats a code needing erased and if you disconnect the battery that may go away.

1998 Dodge Caravan. engine dies and wont start. fuel pump was changed twice but i get a few miles & dies again & wont start. im thinkin fuel filter is plugged....


It might be your fuel filter. Also, Dodge and Chrysler is bad for fuel pump failures. A clogged fuel filter can cause this. Also, you might not be getting enough fuel pressure. There should be a test port on the van, where you can test the gas pressure. You also have a fuel pump relay or switch. This could be bad as well. Hope this helps you.

2003 dodge grand caravan has started dieing at idle.


vans in that year all have throttle body injection and are preset as long as there is enough voltage from the battery could be a low battery charge or a bad sensor not telling the computor to keep fuel going at a stop if the check engine light goes on also when that happens if it doesn t bad fuel and a fuel injection cleaner might help and see what happens after that

My 98 dodge caravan has a loss of power and dies when stopping


Filter is mounted directly above the pump module on top of the fuel tank. You may have to drop it down a little bit to change it. Also check the fuel pressure with a good gauge while it's running poorly and see if it's out of spec.

Dodge caravan 1998 start problem (alarm set) ,the instument panel is not working and if i start , after 3-4 tryes,is shuting down in 3 seconds, any help?


I have had the same trouble with my 1998 Dodge Caravan, so has my neighbor on both of his caravan vans and We have found that if we slap down on the dash above the temperature gauge it will work just fine.

we both lose speedometer and fuel guages too! Same fix

about once a month I will have to slap it, to get my guages back, and stop the alarm.


I believe it is a bad soldiering connection in the dash but it is not worth chasing it down when I can get by without it.

when the post said the van worked fine after being towed it is because the connection was made while the van was jostled around being loaded and transported
