This may be a dumb question, but did you remember to plug your new alternator in? I installed a new alternator on my truck but never plugged it in, so it wasn't charging the battery and kept dying.

Your dodge caravan 2005 doesnt start and you hear three clicking sounds when you turn the ignition what is it?

We just had the same problem on a 2005 caravan. Auto parts store tested it and siad the alternator was bad. Took it to main dealer and they said the battery was bad. They changed the battery and all is well. (Main dealer battery $160 so beware!!!!!) Try a new battery from somewhere cheaper. You can also remove the alternator and take it to an auto parts store where they can bench test it and tell you if it is bad. They can do the same with the battery.
