Depend of the Model and Engine size.
Some of this Computer need to be Programed with the Vin number and Theft code,
To work correctly.
But the first step I can Recomend is Get the Vehicle Scanned to see if there any available code.
To do the Right procedure related with the code. ..
But some times even when you Have programed the computer but if the BODY computer has a problem will prevent the car to running.
When the Engine run for about 5 seconds, is mean the Theft system is activated.
Are a few step to program the ECM installed on the car.
But is a little complicated because all the Accessories need to work ok. Door locks, Horn, Lights.
Door lock cylinders and Trunk lock cylinder.

Try with the scanner, first.
But if you need some information let me know.
I'm a mechanic and have information for all Vehicles.

Thank you for use fixya....

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

I installed a new alternator for my 1996 dodge caravan and when I diconnect the negative cable the van stil tuns off. what should I do next

It should!

Back in the day you could do that and the vehicle would still run.

On later model vehicles you can not do this. As soon as you disconnect ground the computers shut down. Not only that but when you do this with the vehicle running you risk ruining one of the several computers on your vehicle.

Why are you doing this in the first place?

My 1996 Dodge Caravan is running smooth on drive but when I stopped and put it in reverse, it hesitates and I felt like it will stall.

I had a 1995 Plymonth Vorager. (3.0 L V6) These vans came with several engine sizes and types. On my vehicle I had a stalling problem in both drive and reverse. I found that the small engine idle passageway bypassing the air inlet valve to the main engine air manfold was clogged with dirt and sludge buildup from the fuel fumes when the engine is shut off. In this condition, it would not allow enough air to pass when the engine is in idle. At idle, the main valve is closed. Under load, such as being in gear and the vehicle stopped, the engine would die if it does not get enough air. I used carburator cleaner to soak and clean out the passageway. The air filter might also be dirty and need to be replaced. If you are not familure with this maintenace, I would suggest taking it to a trusted garage to replace the air filter and have them clean out the enigne air valve and inlet area. Hopefully it will be that simple. If you still have issues after this, you may have to have the transmission looked at.

Hope this helps.

Key is out of ignition switch, motor stops but cooling fan still running with whistling sound in my 1997 Dodge Caravan

Cooling fans running is okay. vehicles "superheat" during the time immediately after shutdown. With more aluminum in engine construction, major temp swings are problematic.

I presume that the fans eventually shut down...this is normal and very much needed.

2001 dodge caravan turns off when put into gear

U have a dirty automatic idle speed control valve, do the following to clean it.

get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

I have 1996 Dodge caravan and the fan's come on and stay on

By chance are you saying the fans stay running when you turn off the engine, the problem is with the radiater fan relay, the points are probably sticking together, it's in the pdc box under the hood, power comes from fuse 4, 40 amp, through the relay, then to the fans, relay is controlled by the engine controller (pcm). just flip the cover and find the right relay, pull it out when they wont shut off, if it quits, swap it anouther relay from the pdc box, and test it again, fans come on at 212*F and shut off at 199-202*F. if the fans stay running while engine is running, you might have a coolant sensor issue, or cooling system issue. If you need more assistance, let me know. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP
