Installed new battery and alternator in 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan and still not charging and killing battery.

I would check all connections. Make the belt that spins the alternator is tight. If you can get the vehicle to an advance auto parts or any tech that can test the battery and charging system that would help. They can all so a see if anything is drawing from the battery this will let you know If there is a problem with something draining the battery

How to install a alternator for a 1999 dodge grand caravan se 3.0 liter

Best thing to do is to go to the public library and look in the Reference section for a repair manual for this vehicle. I could go into how to do it, but it is actually pretty straight forward as far as repairs are considered. Just be sure to disconnect the battery before performing any of the repair. (disconnect the ground cable)

You will have to remove the drive belt before removing the alternator.

How to install timing belt on 1996 dodge grand caravan

The timing belt is inside the housing (plastic) and if it was off then the engine would not have been running. The belt you saw is the serpentine belt and drives the accessories such as alternator --fan---power steering---water pump---ac compressor. With it missing the engine would have no water pump or fan and would have been getting quite hot. Get a new belt and if you have a owners hand book the lay out will be in a diagram.

96 grand caravan 3.3l battery not staying charged. new serpintine belt, batterty, pulleys, and alternator tested ok several times. Also new computer installed and no fuses are blown. Should I replace the...

if alternator tested fine the wire on the back of the alternator is not getting a circuit back to the battery to charge it.
You can run a wire from the back of the alternator to the battery positive post and it will charge the battery.
I have done that several times on dodges because of ammeter gauge in dash being burnt out.
With the ammeter gauge burnt out it breaks the circuit from the alternator to the battery and the battery does not get charged.
