Sounds like a crank sensor or a mass air flow sensor. Take it to an Auto parts store and have them read the trouble code for you. It will tell you what circuit is affected.

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.

This is a bad connection within the printed circuit of the instument cluster. It seems to be worse in higher temps, like being in the sun with the windows up for several hours. (I feel it should be a recall) Sometimes a firm tap on the face of the cluster will bring it back, but the only solution at this point is to repace the cluster.

Sounds like there is a problem with the Torque converter in the transmission or Transmission itself. When you put it in gear it should initially go into neutral but occasionally the transmission will stick part way in gear and partially in neutral putting a load on the motor. It is not enough of a load to get the vehicle moving but it is enough to stall the motor. This could be a simple clutch adjustment in the Automatic clutch to a PCV valve issue to a need to rebuild the whole transmission because of a problem with the control body or transmission pump itself. Sorry for the bad news.

97 dodge caravan at first would lunge when starting to move forward from a stop and now jerks and dies when put into gear. Any ideas?


Sounds like transmission problems The lock up torque converter isn't working correctly. The transmission control module may also be the culprit.

My 1995 dodge caracvan dies when i put it in gear.it runs fine in reverse, only dies in forward.


Have you looked at the gas filter? If it's clogged it might be causing this. It's an easy remove and replace fix.

Dodge caravan dies when in gear


Vacuum leaks. ( hissing noise around the engine). Tune up (plugs and wires). clean the throttle body(inside of it). All these can cause rough idle. The dieing can be from transmission problems. Can you rev the van up and keep it running while in gear? Or does it die then too? You can replace the solenoid pack on the outside of the transmission for around $250, if you do it yourself. If you do this, DO NOT get any dirt in the holes of the transmission where the solenoid pack sets. Clean it well before you remove the old pack.

Dumb question but, did you check the trans fluid? A torque converter can hold 6 quarts of fluid or more and if the van has sat for an extended period of time the fluid drains from the converter and will come out of the vent tube causing a no movement issue

'92 Dodge Caravan low speed stall.


Try cleaning the throttle body. Buy a can of throttle body cleaner, on newer cars you shouldn't use carb cleaner. But given the age of your van the protective coating on the throttle body has probably worn off anyway so if you already have a can of carb cleaner use it. Just buy a can of silicone spray to lubricate and prevent the TB from getting getting gummed up to quickly. Also check the EGR valve as it causes a lot of stalling problems on Caravans. Vacuum test the diaphragm and remove and clean the port and EGR plunger. You should replace the fuel filter if hasn't been replaced in a while. The transmission torque converter lock up solenoid might be sticking too. Just have the computer codes scanned as the EGR valve and lock up solenoid should turn on the check engine light.

Transmission will not engage


Sounds like your torque converter may not be unlocking which is like letting your foot out on the clutch on a manual trans and not releasing the brake. Can you move it to neutral ok? To test the theory, move it to neutral, start the vehicle, then without putting your foot on the brake shift to drive with a liitle gas. If you can get going this way, it is the torque converter.
