Why does my 2009 dodge grand caravan shut off while I'm driving?

I had a similar problem with my 2002 Ford F-150. It turned out to be a loose battery terminal cable. I don't know if that's your problem but worth looking into it.

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.

2006 dodge grand caravan engine sputter after shut off

I'd strongly suggest checking your spark plugs, their cables, the distributor and your ignition, because this could be an electrical problem. Given, though, that you're working in a really tight engine bay in Dodge Caravans made after 2002, especially those with the V6 engine, I'd buy the Haynes manual first. They're around $25 at most, AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts or even Barnes & Noble should have it, (or you can order one even cheaper from,) and it has things like troubleshooting tables for your specific engine. If you have the straight-four, I'd be inclined to check your spark plugs first, but if it's a V6, it could also be time to replace the solenoid at the ignition, which will mean partially disassembling your steering column. The manual will help you a lot, not just with this, but with anything else that could go wrong on your van, plus it'll help you tune it for the best gas mileage. I took my Mom's '05 Caravan up a whole two miles-per-gallon with the tips in the manual, so it pays for itself. Good luck!
