I would check the iac(idle air control valve) first it controls the idle, and then if it is still acting up you may have to change the crank/cam position sensor

My 1996 Dodge Caravan starts well but shuts down when shifted to drive or reverse. I have to try several times till it moves. Once it moves it no longer shuts down. Why?


If it feels like the transmission or engine locks up, it could be something in the trans or the torque converter.
It could be something electrical but it should do it every time you shift it if it is.

My lights on my 1996 caravan won't shut off until the timer shuts them off and they turn on when any door is opened


You are talking about interior lights, right ?
As long as the on-time is under a minute or two, its normal.
The lights are supposed to go off as soon as you start the van tho.

1996 dodge grand caravan wipers do not shut off


Sounds like ground problems to me. I would check all engine grounds and see if that takes care of the problem (something grounding THROUGH the wiper motor because it has a bad ground where it is supposed to be getting ground from).

For a small anual fee, you can subscribe to all of the service information for your vehicle at alldatadiy.com. By doing that, you will have access to all of the PROFESSIONAL service information that I would use to diagnose and repair your vehicle if you were to bring it to my shop for repair. I would start by looking at the "Ground Distribution" diagrams and look up all of the ground locations and verify that all are clean and tight. There are also several "splice blocks" that are involved in your electrical ground system. These diagrams will show you where these are located so they can be properly inspected.
Personally, I would check all of those attached to the engine and transmission FIRST. One of them may have been left disconnected or loose during the previous repairs you mentioned.
