SOURCE: 97 Dodge Caravan Auto-Shutdown Problem

Been working on my dad's 97 Caravan longer then i can remember for things you mentioned and have been not able to get him to sell it.
I found that the electrical connections are prone to corrosion and have replaced lots of the wire and pin connection in the wire harness, thank god i have time on my hands.
The instrument panel where the wire harness connects, i found that the solder goes bad and i had to re solder the connector on the back side of the circuit board, where the harness goes so you need to remove the instrument panel from the dash,
Here is a link that can help you retrieve DTC codes and do research on your caravan. I'ld tell you everything what i needed to do to keep my dad's caravan running but that would be a novel.

Good luck and keep me posted, glad to help you keep yours running too.

I have the very same problem - Were you able to solve it ?

I've cleaned the Idle control valve several times and it seems to help overall but definitely not the cause ! - I think it might be the Coolant temp. sensor - have you tried changing that ?, did it work ?

Thanks mate - please let me know at if you find a solution

If you are lucky it's the little electric switch that melted. If not, it could be many other things like a broken timing belt.
