96 dodge caravan bouncing even when on fairly smooth roads
Just had major work on it 3 days ago, including replacing body controller module, replacing vacuum hose inside door, resealing timing cover/crankshaft/oil pan, replacing front and rear valve covers and gaskets, replacing fuel rail (a recall), and usual oil change and tire rotation. This bouncing is a completely new thing, never had this problem before the other repairs 3 days ago. Bounces so bad that I feel like i'm losing control of vehicle, and it does it on fairly smooth roads - not just big bumps. Could the work they did on the other things cause this?

Pulling fuse's an disconnecting battery's isn't the way to fix this . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop. The BCM - body control module controls the power lock's . Hooking up a factory or professional scanner looking at data pid's -parameters is , codes etc... . What 20 amp fuse ? My service info. shows 40 amp fuse #19 , I see a 20 amp fuse # 14 - this powers the anti-theft module (SKREEM) sentry key remote entry module.
Only 96 and 97 models have a separate RKE module. Models from other years do not necessarily have a separate RKE module but RKE is one of the functions of the Body Control Module located under the dash.
In the 1997 Dodge Caravan the RKE module is located up on top of the dash between the defrost ducts. Removing the upper dash panel you will find the module located behind the safety indicator cluster on the left hand side. The module is a small black box of about 2/3 inches side, attached to a blue electrical connector.
the headlights brake lights and tail lights are controlled by a body control module check the headlight switch first this is a common problem with these vehicles the head light switch usually burns up internally
the most common cause of the poblems u are having is the Body Contro Module (known as the BCM) is defective, it is all to common a complaint, I believe you must have the new module programmed so the dealer will have to get invovled.
