Are you sure the fuel pump is not working ?
Is the pump getting power from the relay when the key is turned on ?

SOURCE: 1999 dodge caravan 3.0 liter. fuel pump relay not

Have you checked the ASD (Automatic Shut Down) Relay? Check to see if that is getting power. Then check to see if the ASD Relay itself is good. You do not have to use any special tools/knowledge to check this. You can change this Relay out with another Relay that is the same shape and type on a function that is known working. For example: Check to see if your Front Windshield Wipers are working. Change out the ASD Relay with this Front Windshield On/Off Relay. Check the Wipers again. If it does not work, then the ASD Relay is bad. With the Front Wiper Relay in the ASD now check for power to the Fuel Pump Relay.
One additional fact: IF the Crankshaft Position Sensor is bad the Engine will not operate at all, meaning there will be no power sent to anything including the fuel pump relay!

SOURCE: replacing water pump on a dogge Caravan 1996

Alright, here's a pic of the mechanicals:

The bad news is on your vechile you have to remove the timing belt, but here's a step by step.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the drive belts.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTION When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the timing case cover and timing belt. Refer to Timing Belt Covers and Timing Belt Removal procedures.
  2. Remove the pump assembly mounting bolts.
  3. Separate the pump assembly from water pipe and remove.
  4. Clean gasket and O-ring mounting surfaces.
  5. Install a new O-ring on water pipe and lubricate with water.
  6. Install a new gasket on pump body.
  7. Press the water pump assembly into water pipe.
  8. Install pump mounting bolts and tighten to 27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.).
  9. Install timing belt and cover. Refer to Timing Belt procedures.
  10. Install drive belts.
  11. Fill the cooling system
To remove timing:
0900c152800661ff.jpg
The timing belt can be inspected by removing the upper (front outer) timing cover.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  3. Remove the timing belt covers.
  4. Identify the timing belt running direction to avoid reversal during installation.
  5. Loosen timing belt tensioner bolt and remove timing belt.
  6. Remove the crankshaft sprocket flange.
To install:
  1. Rotate the crankshaft sprocket until timing mark on crankshaft sprocket is lined up with the oil pump timing mark at 1 o'clock position.
  2. Rotate the (inner) camshaft sprocket until mark on (inner) camshaft sprocket is lined up with the timing mark on alternator bracket.
  3. Rotate the (outer) camshaft sprocket (radiator side) until mark on the sprocket is lined up with the timing mark on the timing belt inner cover. Refer to timing belt illustration.
  4. Install the timing belt on the crankshaft sprocket while maintaining pressure on the tensioner side.
  5. Position the timing belt over the camshaft sprocket (radiator side). Next, position the belt under the water pump pulley, then over the (inner) sprocket and finally over the tensioner.
  6. Apply rotating force in the opposite direction to the camshaft sprocket (radiator side) to create tension on the timing belt tension side.
  7. Rotate the crankshaft in a clockwise direction and recheck engine timing marks.
  8. Install the crankshaft sprocket flange.
  9. Loosen the tensioner bolt and allow tensioner spring to tension the belt.
  10. Again rotate the crankshaft in a clockwise direction (2) full turns. Recheck the engine timing. Tighten the tensioner bolt to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm).
  11. Install the timing covers.
  12. Install the accessory drive belts.
  13. Connect battery negative cable.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Battery replaced on 2001 grand dodge caravan now radio dont work

U will need to enter the radio anti theft code, this lock out was triggered by the loss of voltage to the radio during the battery change, this code is unique to each radio and cam in the owners information packet when the cat was sold new.

Wont start. drove the caravan to the store then home and it hasnt started since


It could be just about anything was it driven normal before it died or was it acting up . make sure that the gas is actually getting to the engine if it is i would maybe change the spark plugs. then the computer again . but may start to get costly by guessing you may want to bring it in for test..

2005 grand caravan fuel problem


Theres a problem in the Fuel pump. Do you have a check engine light with codes?? If not go to any good auto part store & have them scan for codes for FREE. Auto Zone does this & others. This would help on my end. But sounds like the fuel level sending unit which is part of the fuel pump & can be replace sepreat from the intire unit. It's cheaper. You still have to drop the fuel tank to get to it

Dodge caravan turns over wont start all lights work


possible bad fuel pump. check fuel pump relay under hood. drivers side fuse panel. swap fuel pump relay with another identical relay to rule out possible bad relay. listen for whining sound back by fuel tank. the fuel pump is in the fuel tank. Another option....you can also check the pressure in the fuel rail, but be careful not to squirt gas in your eyes or face.
