Common problem on caravans bad solder joints on circuit board of instrument cluster.(known problem dodge refuses to acknowledge) remove cluster from dash use a cheap $12.00 Low Power soldering iron from radio shack and reheat solder joints on cluster. can be very hard to notice broken solder joints to the untrained eye. trust me on 90% of all weird electrical problems this model is known for this cures it. not bcm or ecm modules like some mechanics would have you believe.

Provided you've checked all fuses etc first, You may want to have a look at this article. Googling ( soldering dodge caravan cluster ) as well . There are videos on you tube.
Here's the link. ( http://www.allpar.com/model/m/repairs/3G-cluster.html )
sit in the drivers seat close the door. with the key off hold the trip
odometer button in then while holding the button in turn the key on. if
done correctly this will put the MIC (mechanical instrument cluster)
into a self test. if the speedometer does not move like the rest of the
gauges during this test the MIC must be replaced. if the speedometer
does move it is likely your problem will be fixed, however, if the
speedometer does move but it does not start working properly then
further diagnostic will be needed.
With the key in the off posistion press and hold the trip odometer reset button, the lights in the cluster will start to flash and the guages will do a self test. This should take care of your problem.
