Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
My cruise control loses speed when I go uphill. Is this normal?
Yes... After a few mph drop it will automatically give it more fuel and even downshift if neccessary.. Cars are heavy.. Need more fuel to go up hills

I recently had the same issue, but my airbag warning lights also turned on. If this is the case, it might be the clockspring. There is a recall on clocksprings for Caravans 1998 - 2000 I believe. I got it replaced for free in the dealership. Enter your VIN in this site and it will tell you if you are covered in the free replacement warranty.
Hope this helps.

does the horn work and is the air bag light on because if thats the case you have a bad clockspring. and for your year van i do belive that is a lifetime recall. hope this helps.

The cruise has no dedicated fuse, you will most likely be looking to replace the clockspring rotating contact located under the steering wheel which connects the switches in the steering wheel (horn, cruise and air-bag) to the rest of the electrical system.

Look under the hood to check and make sure there is two steel wire cables connected to the throttle body. i had the same problem on my 02 dodge ram, turns out that just one of the cables came loose
