If it is an electric speedo it probably is the speed sensor and if it is a manal speedo it is the cable.

It could, along with the gauges themself and dozens of other causes. A scan tool capable of communication with the body computer and cluster is required to diagnose.

There is no speedometer cable on a 1995 caravan. it is done by a speed sensor on the transmission and digtal data is sent to the computer and the computer then sends the signal to the speedometer. This is the case even when the speedometer looks analog. Likely a bad speedometer is the cause if it does not move as the speed sensor is used for other functions and would trip the "check engine" light if it was bad. the speedometer is part of the instrument cluster and likely you would need to change the whole thing.

The only difference between the Dodge Grand Caravan and the Dodge Grand Caravan Sport is mostly aesthetic. The side cladding on the Sport model is the same color as the body of the vehicle, the spoiler is visible, and there are other convenience items. It also has a firmer suspension than the Grand Caravan.

Your speedometer may have failed, or the speedometer cable that connects to the transmission, or the plastic gear in the transmission may be broken.

usually it's the speedometer cable that goes bad, you can reach behind the dash and unplug it from the speedometer and with some pliers undo it from the transmission. If you can spin one end and the other does not spin it is bad.

check the vss located on the tailshaft of the transmission for the speedometer issue the odometer is figured out based on the speedometer also so it will quit as well. this sounds like either the sensor is bad or a short in the wire from it The cord for the speedometer came undone from the transmission or the gauge cluster is bad

yes but if you want to be sure measure from one stud to the other the distance should be 114.5 mm if it is a 5 stud rim

Your 1993 Dodge Caravan might start sometimes and not start other times because of a bad starter or solenoid. You might also have a weak battery or a charging system that is not working correctly. This could also be an issue with the distributor.

1990 model dodge caravan are considered to the cheapest one among other model dodge caravans. The Dodge Caravan,invented an entirely new one: the minivan. Offering an especially useful amount of room in a surprisingly easy-to-drive package, the Caravan quickly became the new synonym for family transportation and spawned competitors from all sides. The Dodge Caravan has traditionally stayed a step ahead of the herd. It was first to market with the sliding door, then the first with two. It pioneered the integration of safety features like airbags. And for many years, it was also regarded as being the most versatile and pleasant-driving minivan. Given all this, it should come as no surprise that the Caravan, along with its longer relative, the Grand Caravan, became the top-selling minivan year after year

The purpose of having a TV in a Dodge Caravan is to entertain children and/or other passengers while riding in the car. Some kids tolerate long car rides better if they are watching a cartoon or movie so it's beneficial in that aspect.

To remove the grill from your 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan, first pop the hood and open it. Remove the headlights, and lift the vehicle on ramps or other means. Remove the five bolts on the back of the grill and take grill out.

Magnets are very important when driving your car. First of all, they're involved with your speedometer, tachometer, galvonometer (fuel gauge), and all the other gauges on your dash boards.

If you are trying to replace a faulty speedometer, there should be a couple of clips on the back of the instrument cluster. All you need to do is push the lever and pull the connector out. It is illegal to disconnect the speedometer in the United States for any reason other than to repair or replace it.

It fits many Doge, Chrysler, Plymouth, and Jeep applications.It does fit a 1993 Dodge Caravan 3.3 Liter V6. I know because I had my Caravan for 15 years and just traded it in. It will probably fit many other model years because Dodge never changed the Caravan or engine much over the years.

The 4.0 L has a timing belt. All other engines have a timing chain.

Your transmission has a pin type connector. A switch to spade connectors was made in the later 1999 model Caravan. Thus, a '96, '97 or '98 trannie will fit your 1998 3.0 Caravan. Pre-96 bolted up differently, so anything older will not work.
