Check for spark. If there is no spark I would be suspicious of the crank sensor. It is located on the backside of the transmission where it bolts up to the motor.

I have a 06 dodge grand caravan when my van it gets at a quarter tank of gas and when i stop it will shut off and as it gets lower to the E it gets worse shutting off i try not to let it get below a q

The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. The pump is cooled by the fuel. Once the fuel level get down to the 1/4 tank, the fuel module has very little fuel to dissipate heat into. If the pump is aging and getting hot, this will cause it to bind and stop working. I don't believe the sending unit is bad, since your fuel gauge seems to be reading correctly. You have some choices here. You can get a new pump and have it installed in the existing module assembly. The pump runs about $90.00 US. Replacement involved pulling the fuel pump module from the tank, disassembling it and replacing the pump, reassembling it and replacing the module in the tank. You can replace the entire module, which includes the pump, strainer, float, sending unit. This runs about $230.00 US. These prices are for parts only. Labor is extra.

How do I disconnect the electrical wire and fuel line from my Dodge 2006 Grand Caravan, I need to replace the fuel pump

You just need to disconnect ground - wire from battery and you can choose one of the hoses on the fuel filter, put a oil pan before disconnect this hose... that's enough!

You have a fuel pump relay that sends power to the fuel pump. Do you hear the fuel pump turn on when you start the van? If not then check the relay. sometimes you can have someone tap the top of the relay while the key is being turned. If it starts then change the relay. about 10$ from

1992 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3l dies on highway.

Its normal for the pump to run for three seconds then shut off if the car engine is off. . This indicates that the fuel pump turned on and the pressure did reach specifications. If the pump did not reach pressure the pump would continue to run, You need to check for proper pressure with a gauge. If tthe pressure is ok then you have another issue like an ignition module or crank sensor if applicable. You may have to drive the car with the fuel gauge hooked up to see if you still have pressure when it dies.. I know you said you replaced the pump already but do you have the same issues as before you replaced it. This would indicate which direction you need to go now. If the same then its prabably not the pump.
