Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
If the engine turns over and the starter works you will need to determine if the engine is getting spark and fuel. Let's concentrate on the starting system first. There are three major components to your starting system. The battery, the starter solenoid, and the starter. There are a couple of sub systems too that can prevent your starter from operating such as the nuetral switch.May sure the car is firmly in nuetral for testing.
If the engine doesn't turn over then you may have a problem with the starter solenoid or the starter itself. You can jump power directly to the starter from the battery by connecting a jumper lead to the positive side of the battery to the starter terminal on the starter. If the starter turns over then your solenoid is probably bad. If the starter will not turn you will need to remove it and have it tested. (Most parts stores will do this for free) NAPA Schucks, O'Rilies CarQuest ect.
