Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
Changed the alternator, fuse box and computer and had it reprogrammed. Seemed to fix the problem for a day to two and then it died again while backing into my driveway. Heard a dinging bell 2 or 3 times and all the dash lights and headlights were flashing...there's no noise whatsoever when turning the key other than a humming noise in sync with the lights flashing
You'll need an OBD-II scanner tool to read the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) which will help in troubleshooting the problem. You can either rent or buy one (Sear, NAPA, Pep Boys, or Auto Zone). Or else have the car towed to your local Dodge dealership for repairs or to any local auto repair shop w/ ASE certified mechanic.
If you are able to pull the codes before going to a shop, post them and we can take it from there.

When you disconnected the battery, you tripped the alarm which locked down everything. In your owners manual, look under the security or alarm system. It will tell you how to disarm your particular alarm system. If I am not mistaken on these you put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock it 2-3 times. If you do not have the owners manual, you can contact dodge and they will walk you through it.

Testimonial: "I had the central timing modual replaced and new key codes set and problem was resolved!"
You can get free owners manuals online at:
or just type "owners manuals" in your search.
Here is a post I found that worked for my 2005 caravan.
For a 2001 Dodge Caravan: The owner's manual is vague, only stating that all fuses are under the hood in the fuse box, no diagrams. Once you have removed the fusebox cover, the diagrams for what each fuse does is provided under the lid. UNCLEARLY marked is the radio fuse, a 20amp fuse located 2nd row from top to the right of the accessory relay. It is marked: RDO/IP IGN.
