Question about 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan
Sounds like your A/C compressor seized. Locate the compressor in the engine bay. Usually a large round aluminium grey component driven by a belt of the engine. These operate on an electro-magnetic clutch. Passing current through it will engage the clutch and connect the compressor drive with the pulley.
Start the engine, the front part of the compressor(drive) will be stationary(Even though the belt running over it will be moving on its pulley). Switch on the A/C. That same front part should now be moving, along with the pulley. If not turn off the engine. Try to rotate the compressor drive by hand. Not the pulley itself. If it is difficult to turn or does not turn at all, you have a compressor problem. A/C is not really user serviceable so have it checked out.
