Reading all the problems with the Caravan shutting down reason

Customer Question

Reading all the problems with the Caravan shutting down for no reason during driving.
My van now doing the same thing. Did anyone ever figure out what the problem is and how to fix it?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
Since the van has been at a dealer I'm assuming they checked for fault codes and found nothing related.
There are many things that could cause the engine to die and it will take some testing at the time the problem is happening to know exactly what is going on. You could be losing cam or crank signal, the powertrain control module could be going down, the problem could be in the TIPM (module/fuse box under the hood)or there could be a wiring issue, although any of these things should have left fault codes that would have at least shed some light on what is going on.
If no codes are setting and it's dying abruptly then there is a good chance you have a bad wireless ignition node (WIN). The WIN is the module in the dash where the key is inserted, it sends a key position message to other modules. If the WIN was the issue usually no codes would be set.
