Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
These sound electrical for sure. Almost sounds as if the computer is somehow getting a positive surge. Possibly a shorting wire somewhere.
I'd definitely take a look under the hood and see if there's any burn marks or corrosion (green/white powders) on the wiring. This could be a sign of a serious problem to come. Either way, if it's effecting that much, it's definitely shorting something.
daffodilnan, you could possibly check the fuse for the guage cluster, and the ECU. They could be loose and just vibrating on/off causing loss of guages. This should be located in the fuse box on the dash near the drivers door.
