Question about 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan
As you know, there are many components that could be causing your problem. Likely, it's a spark or fuel related problem that makes your car not able to start, or possibly a dead battery. Also, check ignition switch.
If you have a multi meter and a fuel pressure gauge, check the fuel pressure at the rail. You should have 48 PSI there. Then check the primary and secondary circuits of the ignition coil; it's easiest with the coil pack removed. Then make sure you check all your plug wires for proper resistance. Resistance should be 3-12K ohms per foot. You'll also want to check all the various electrical connections and vacuum lines.
I would also put a code scanner on it to see if you have any fault codes locked into the computer memory.
Check the battery for sufficient CCA and voltage. FInally, check if you have acticated some "inmobilizer" Theft System or Passlock.
I hear that cam sensor, crank sensor or broken flex plate can cause these exact symptoms a quality scanner can help pinpoint the exact problem. I also heard of corrosion on the wiring where the wires go thru the firewall can occur commonly caused by washer fluid dripping on that connector
