05 dodge caravan fuel pump is good but will not
When you say that the fuel pump is good, do you mean that you did a pressure test on it and it was in specs or do you mean that it energizes? If it does engergize then I would do a pressure test on it to make sure that it has the strength to pump fuel from the fuel tank up to the engine.

2005 Dodge caravan dashboard indicator lights and dials went haywire
2005 Caravan I had the same problem with my van gauges bounceing, headlights not comeing on when the switch was turned on.I took a day and downloaded a wireing diagram from dodge and studyed it.GROUND PROBLEM dodge have several ground conections to the body then there is one MAIN BODY GROUND.This is most likely your problem it is easy for any back yard mechanic to fix.This main body ground is located under your battery box.You will have to remove the battery and then the battery box becarful of the battery sensor that is mounted in the bottom of the box.Also there is a hose that you will have to disconnect but dont try to remove it from the box remove it from above the box.After you get the battery and box out you will see a threaded stud with a black wire conected to it this will be rusted because of no antioxide grease applyed.You will have to remove the nut and wire connector clean both and the stud with wire brush or sandpaper.Put antioxide grease or if nothing else some vaseline to keep it from coroading again.put back together and see if this dosent fix your problem.It has been six weeks for me now.good luck.dont forget that neg battery terminal is the first one to disconect and the last to reconect.

2005 dodge caravan 2.4 , location of crankshaft
2005 Dodge Caravan SE 2.4L Engine. Crank Shaft Sensor is located on the front of the engine (side toward the radiator) and right below the starter.
Raise the vehicle on stands or ramps. From under the vechcle, unclip the wire plug. Loosen and remove the 8mm bolt. Pull out old sensor.
This CAN be done WITHOUT removing the starter. Easiest way is to use a deep 8mm x 1/4” drive socket and good lighting. I had to use vise grips to grip and pul out the old sensor. It is okay to twist and pull.
NOTE: I have seen many posts placing this sensor in all kinds of places. For this vehicle, this is where it is located. If you have a different engine or year, it could be located someplace else.

2005 dodge caravan both rear door does not unlock...
Unplug connector to lock actuator and use meter to check for power and ground toggle as you use the door lock button. If you see power and ground toggle, then the problem is the actuator. Replace it/them. If no power/ground toggle, you've got a wiring problem in the traveling cable at the bottom of the door. VERY VERY common.
