Question about Dodge Caravan
I have a 2000 Dodge Grande Caravan. The fuel gauge reads more than it has in it but it is inconsistent. Sometimes it reads just fine and sometimes you run out of gas when the gauge says there is 1/4 of a tank left.
You need to most likely drop the fuel tank out of the car and replace the fuel tank sending unit. Have this conformed by the dealer as it is a very laborious job and requires some special tools for the fuel lines.

Hi, concerning the left turn signal, this is caused by a faulty or defective flasher relay switch. this is easily replaced and once replaced with a new relay, it will fix this erratic flashing issue you are having. Now, concerning the gas gauge issue. the reason for the non response here is because of a malfunctioning sending unit that is located inside the actual tank. it is part of the fuel pump assembly and it will need to be replaced.
OK, this is concerning the dead radio issue. i would first check the fuse to see if it is ok. if the radio fuse is fine, this will more than likely be an internal circuit issue within the radio itself and, you will have to replace the factory radio. most factory radio systems tend to get really hot and this is not good. it usually ruins the internal circuit board in time, completely rendering the radio useless. i would still make sure the fuse is good. it could be as simple as a blown radio fuse. i will post a step by step guide below that will help you replace the flasher relay.
FLASHER RELAY SWITCH REPLACEMENT GUIDE--
Step1 Locate the fuse box under the dash on the driver's side of the Caravan. Look near the emergency brake. The fuse box cover has two finger screws that you should loosen to remove the cover. Inside you will see a collection of fuses and in the upper right corner a few relays. Step2 Find the turn signal hazard flasher relay in the upper right corner of the fuse box. It should be easy to spot as it is the biggest of the relays in the box. Remove the relay and replace it into the socket from which you just pulled the bad relay. The placement into the socket is tight and can be difficult, but be patient and take your time. Step3 Look to make sure it ended up in the correct position. Close the fuse cover and tighten the finger screws. Start the Caravan and test all the light functions. Make sure that the turn lights blink and that the hazard lights work properly.
Please rate and god bless:)

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.

it sounds like the gauge float assembly in the top of the tank has gone bad. But before you change it I would look at all of your electrical connections and make sure that they all are properly grounded for that circuit.

did you replaced just the float , because if the resistor that messures the level is not good you didn't do any thing you have to change the level sensor next to the pump..,Im sure that;s all the problem, you should also check the wiring next to the pumpand any connector down there
