These vehicles seem to have a problematic short, my grandfather has the same vehicle with the same problem, i found the short under the carpet on the driver side of the vehicle, under the gas pedal, sometimes wires can crack and break.

My 98 dodge caravan seems like all of the fuel injectors, or the fuel pump doesnt work. when i first start my car, the dashboard only half works. the speedometer doesnt read and the gas gauge doesnt move...

This definitely sounds like an electrical issue. The first thing I would check would be your ground from the battery to the engine block. Make sure they are tight and secure with no breaks.

My odometer, my fuel gauge, and my mileage lights not working. I cannot tell how much gas I have and how fast I am going or see the mileage lights on my van. All the fuses are fine. What now?

If you give the top of the dashboard directly above the speedometer (and gauge cluster) a nice open handed whack 2or3 times, with the key in the on position and see if the cycle on. if this is the case the 6-8 wire plug behind the gauge cluster is faulty and should be replaced. if not...Open the hood of the engine and directly in front of the driver located on the firewall a big square box mostly likely with rubber over it to protect it, with a nut directly in the middle of it, if this is lose tighten it, or if tight take it off and unplug look for corrosion on pins 46-54 these pins control your speedometer and mileage. look for corrosion. Good luck

I have a 2000 Dodge Caravan 3.3 and my gauge (gas, rpm, mileage etc) shuts down a few seconds after engine started (seem to me to be short circuit somewhere) plse help

It sounds like the Accessory Relay is going bad. It is located in The Powetrain Distribution Center (PDC in the engine compartment. Additionally, you have Fuses, Circuit Breakers, and Fuses in the Junction Block located under the left side of the dashboard.
Locate this Accessory Relay and replace with a Spare Relay or with a Relay of the same Type (size and shape.
Check operation again. Based on your year (2000) it is right on schedule for this relay to start acting up.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

Everthing on my dash (speedometer,odometer,fuel

Blown Fuse or fried Circuit board. Take to a local AutoZone, Advance, Murray's, O'reillys or a similar part house for them to check the wiring. I'm assuming the van does not use a mechanical Speedometer or Fuel Gauge.

On the plus side, with no speedometer, your indicated odometer mileage does not increase. Just keep your speed down and your tank full. Kidding, just kidding.

Intermittent Speedometer Operation

Replace the speed sensor on the transmission. This controls the speedometer.
