I had the same issue with my dodge caravan and after several attempts by the dealer to fix it, it turned out to be a broken wire. They replaced the relay and it would work for a while and then go blank again. Have the wires checked thoroughly.

SOURCE: dodge 1996 caravan/engine starts then abruptly shuts off

I would check the iac(idle air control valve) first it controls the idle, and then if it is still acting up you may have to change the crank/cam position sensor

SOURCE: 98 dodge grand caravan will not start

This is very similar to a problem my sister had with her 1998 Caravan. She found that you need to remove the instrument pod and resolder the connector on the circuit board. Due to cracks, the thing will sometimes not have a good connection, causing the trouble. Mine just developed this problem too, so remedying it myself.
Go to this link for more info and a helpful disassembly PDF.

If it doesn't work, search for 1998_chrysler_pod_repair and you should find the PDF. I hope this helps! It's really much easier to take apart than you'd think.

Changed battery terminals and now dinging wont stop unless warning light fuse removed


It sounds like it thinks the key is still in it all the time. Try turning the key forward to the on position, but not running, so the dinging stops. disconnect the battery. Remove the key completely and reconnect the battery.

Maintenance light coming on, then the oil light.


The maintenance light is telling you that the cpu has found faults in sensors and is shutting down the engine to prevent engine failure. Have the codes read and replace that which is faulty with genuine units.

2004 Caravan temp light and rapid dinging


If you have a problem with a light check your temp gauge. Chrysler warning on engine overheating responds that way and as the engine becomes hotter the chime becomes more rapid. Check your antifreeze and fluid level, this may be the problem.

Oil light comes on and dings when the brake is put on or the van is stopped


Oil pump is wearing out. This is not an issue as long as it only happens at idle or unless you plan to get a lot more miles out of the van.

My oil light is coming on, but the oil is full.


Did he inspect the oil pick-up tube before putting new pan on? If the old pan was caved in roughly where pick-up tube would be in pan. it may have bent it up to a point where it doesn't **** up the oil, or the tube could be cracked above the oil level & sucking more air, than oil.
