First take the negative side off the battery and the remove the drive belt there is a belt tensioner on the belt and for the most part it a 3/8 or 1/2 in ratchet to get the belt off and if there is an auto zone close to you they can print you out a diagram

The belt on my serpentine belt keep comeing off on my 2000 dodge caravan

Have you checked the belt tensioner? The spring could be weak. Also some belt tensioners have marks on them to show if the belt is stretched. You can take off the belt and have it measured or put a new belt on it and use the old one as a spare. Remember to check if you have an optional engine to buy the matching belt.

I would suggest to check the battery first, normally the votage should be above 12V. You can try boost from another car, if the van starts, then replace the battery.
