Verify that the car is getting fuel and spark to the cylinder.
Verify that the fuel pump is generating enough pressure.
May have to check and/or replace the fuel pressure regulator.

I once had a fuel pump replaced on a 1990 Cutlass Calais (GM Product) at Firestone, and the pump went bad within a couple of weeks.

Had it replaced with a different brand fuel pump, under warranty, and it has worked ever since.

1998 dodge caravan keeps dying but starts right back up

I'd start by replacing the fuel filter, if it hasn't been replaced recently, that might be the cheapest fix, if that doesn't solve it, it sounds like a fuel pump, have the pressure coming out of it checked before dropping the fuel tank to get to it.

My 96 dodge grand caravan keeps cutting off on me and is getting very difficult to start please help me....i just replaced a computer on it but i dont think it made a difference!!!!

Check the fuel pressure, to begin with. Even though the pump is working, it may be a weak pump. Low fuel pressure is often the cause of hard starting. If the pressure is good, you will have to start checking the ignition system for a fault.

Problems with fuel pump (been replaced 3 times and the problem is not fixed!) on Dodge Caravan.

May be the problem is not the fuel pump but the regulator valve in the fuel manifold. Has a manifold pressure and pump pressure test been done . One has to be careful with caravans as by nature they sit for long times without use and it is a tendancy to leave the fuel tank with a limited amount of fuel in it with related problems.

There is not fuse for pump but a relay in the relay block. I do suggest jumping to see if pump turns on. Test voltage from ECM if needed. If voltage is to pump, then pump is shot. If not voltage, relay may be bad
