    I have a 1999 2.4 L Caravan with same issue. While driving, car will stop when foot removed from gas - no warning lights - will start up fine. Has occured once/day for last several days.

    another possible problem is the thermostat. If stuck open, the engine cannot warm up properly, with the end result of the computer being thrown for a loop and not sending out the proper signals. This is a fact as it happened in my 1998 3.0 Caravan.

I had a problem with my caravan similar to yours. everyone had all these great ideas yet couldn't get it to run right. i finally took out the CAM sens.. it has magnetic pick-ups and they had a few very small pieces of metal attached between them thus not allowing correct communication. I cleaned off the metal used a small pen like magnet to remove any inside motor and the van has run great ever since.

When you try to start it back up, have you tried very slightly pressing on the accelerator and trying to start it? If it does start, but dies as soon as you let up on the pedal, dollars to donuts the IAC (idle air control) passageway is blocked or the IAC motor is bad (should throw out a check engine light though).

Can you jumper the fuel pump and make it start and continue to run ?
Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when it won't start ?
Could be a relay or coil, ignition module, or other component.

I would remove and check the starter. If the drive came out and stayed out it will lock the engine and give you the click. The ASR will click as well because it is trying to engage anyway.

Truck will not start


I think there is an electric fuel pump to supply fuel to the injection system. I would check into that part of the system.

I'd take a close look at the relays under the hood, in the fuse/relay box, i think on yours probably on drivers side near shock tower. Look close at connections to it also.
