Hi, concerning the left turn signal, this is caused by a faulty or defective flasher relay switch. this is easily replaced and once replaced with a new relay, it will fix this erratic flashing issue you are having. Now, concerning the gas gauge issue. the reason for the non response here is because of a malfunctioning sending unit that is located inside the actual tank. it is part of the fuel pump assembly and it will need to be replaced.

OK, this is concerning the dead radio issue. i would first check the fuse to see if it is ok. if the radio fuse is fine, this will more than likely be an internal circuit issue within the radio itself and, you will have to replace the factory radio. most factory radio systems tend to get really hot and this is not good. it usually ruins the internal circuit board in time, completely rendering the radio useless. i would still make sure the fuse is good. it could be as simple as a blown radio fuse. i will post a step by step guide below that will help you replace the flasher relay.

Look near the emergency brake.\015\012The fuse box cover has two finger screws that you should loosen to\015\012remove the cover. Inside you will see a collection of fuses and in the\015\012upper right corner a few relays. \015\012\011\011\011\011 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Step2\015\012Find the turn signal hazard flasher relay in the upper right corner of\015\012the fuse box. It should be easy to spot as it is the biggest of the\015\012relays in the box. Remove the relay and replace it into the socket from\015\012which you just pulled the bad relay. The placement into the socket is\015\012tight and can be difficult, but be patient and take your time. \015\012\011\011\011\011 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Step3\015\012Look to make sure it ended up in the correct position. Close the fuse\015\012cover and tighten the finger screws. Start the Caravan and test all the\015\012light functions. Make sure that the turn lights blink and that the\015\012hazard lights work properly.
