    Having similar problems, though I believe this due to a dirty/fouled-up fuel filter. Problems occur more frequently while going uphill or onto ramps and bridges. Hopefully this will get cleared up once a new filter is installed

Does it start right back up? Is it during a turn, or stop, or maybe only when ac is on or anything like that?

96 dodge caravan 3.3 started then died and now will not start or even crank lights work dash lights up but nothing from under the hood new ecm starter battery and crank sensor have all been put on what...

If you replaced the ECM and didn't reprogram it. There's your problem. The ECM doesn't recognize the security code. And it will start and kill the vehicle three times before shutting down everything. IE.. starter, fuel.

Van quit unexpectedly while driving it- it appears it is spark or electrical-changed ignigition coil- not it- is there a safety shutoff ???? any ideas?????????

No shut offs, these are none for fuel pumps,depending on the engine it may be a bad timing belt, the belt may have poped or jumped, start by checking the fuel preasure,if there preasure about 50-60 psi them the next step would be the belt, a compression test on the cylinder should tell you or removing the cover and checking the timing marks. i would say its one of the two a fuelpump or the timing belt, i checked and the 96 caravan does have a timing belt in the 4 and 6 cylinder engines. hope this helps.

Dodge Grand Caravan 2005 P0016 code

Im assuming it is an engine that uses a timing belt. It sounds like the belt has jumped 1 tooth. if it only jumped 1 tooth than the computer will compesate the timing so it is possible the sensors will say they are ok. If it is a motor that uses a chain than it problaly needs a new gear/chain set.

My 2003 crysler sebring stalled and want start back I geting the camshift sensor code I replaced it and car still wont start and still geting the code Would the timeing belt casue this

Yes a timing belt could cause this. Ususally if the timing belt breaks/slips the engine will have a different sound while cranking it over to try to start it. Does it sound different? Also, if possable remove the cam position senser and look at the tone wheel that the senser reads and have someone crank the engine to see if the tone wheel turns, if not the timing belt is most likely the problem. I have seen a few tone wheels have problems but it is not common. What engine do you have?

2000 dodge van 5.2 auto shutdown relay tunes van off as i am driv

the auto shut down relay is not like a fuse that can shut the engine off the name it has actually has not much to do with its function.. the relay is controlled by the computer .. its main function is to stop run-on and turns off o2 heaters power to coil and injectors if you had the key in the run position and engine not running your battery would dies faster than a drive in movie.. but anyway if your stalling and think its the relay failing just swap it with another one that looks the same from the PDC.. what you may have is a bad fuel pump or even a crank sensor have you had it scanned for codes? sometimes but not always you may have a code for lean upstream o2 if the pump is failing but not always.. and for the crank sensor you may have a crank shaft position sensor performance or cam/crank sensor code ..

96 dodge grand caravan help me please

Check MAP sensor. If PCM gets wrong data from MAP sensor it should offset ignition timing and/or make fuel mixture too lean or too rich.
