Hi There, I'm Clayso a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience and I'm here to help with this problem. Additional services may be offered for detailed information. From your description the instrument cluster is at fault. This is a common failure with the 2000 Caravan displaying DTC P1698. Have the circuit board of the instrument cluster checked for cracked solder joints. The ground pin connection to the circuit board usually is bad. If the problem on the board cannot be located, replace the circuit board. A DRB III Chrysler scan tool must be used to re-calibrate the gauges once repairs have been made. I hope this information is helpful to you.Should you have any questions please let me know.Thanks.
