Check first the status of the cable that connects the transmission and the speedometer through the back of the dashboard. You should be able to see it under the hood at the driver side. Check if the cable is loose or needs replacement. If that checks out ok you may want to check the back of the dashboard if the connection there is still OK.

There was a Problem with the stepper motor that controlls the speedo. How many miles do you have? If you have less than 70K they should replace it for free. Up to 90K They pay for new speedo. If you like call me 732 841 7677.

2001 dodge caravan speedometer

it must have taken an over 12 volt hit,you will need to remove the dash assembly,the needle will move with gravity when not powered,have the dash assembly in your hands and facing you,then flip it over so the needle starts to fall then turn the dash to keep the needle going to zero.then reinstall.
Or if you plan on keeping this van for ever,
you can drill a small hole in plastic cover of dash and insert a small wire to guide the pin back to zero.
