Hi, your decription is kinda vague, but i will attempt to give advice. I had a 2006 caravan come into my bay at the shop i work at a month ago and it was running when it came in, but after about ten minutes, it quit. It would not fire, but would crank ok. I was able to pull codes from the pcm and they were related to crankshaft position sensor intermittent malfunction. I noticed the a battery on this vehicle had a massive amount of corrosion on the cable and it was falling off into the wiring harness which contained the crankshaft sensor. Long story short... I found the wires were damaged by the corrosion, and repaired them. BUT, the van still didn't fire! In the end I replaced the crankshaft sensor and it fired and ran, the customers were very happy and they report no problems since. Now, this case i checked the ignition to see if there was spark first, then checked fuel pressure. You should always check these two things first when diagnosing a no start condition. If your caravan has no spark, look to start with a code scanner if you can get your hands on one. Always best to check what the computer diagnostics say first if you can, it diagnoses ten times faster than we do. But, if you have no fuel, likely a fuel pump or fuel pump relay will be the cause. Good luck, and if you have any other questions about what I have written, please ask, I will try to help more if I can.

Could be the blower switch or the resistor.
I would check for power at the resistor on the other 3 circuit speeds.

Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.

Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.

2001 Dodge 3500 5.9L engine. Coughs, Sputters and back fires when accelerating at low speed. Intermittent. Have changed all the sensors to no avail....

It's a sensor crazy world, but i'm guessing your problem is caused by something more simple. Spark plug wires, or a partially clogged fuel filter. If that doesn't solve it, check the EGR, and check for vacuum leaks . Broken , cracked or loose vacuum lines.
