    Pretty much the same situation- battery terminal cables were corroded, I tried to start engine- clicking noise and slow turning starter but engine started...now, the tachometer and speedometer won't work. I repaced with brand new battery and cleaned battery cable connectors; gages are still not working- checked fuses under the hood- nothing wrong with any of them.

Make sure you have installed the battery correctly red cable on the (+) and black cable on the (-) side sounds like it may be reversed this wold cause instant battery drain.

Need 2000 dodge grand caravan manuel. The dash instrument panel stopped working after a battery replacement. The light work. The tach and speedometer are pinned all the way to the right. ?


Digital Odometer??
Try this procedure and let me know if this worked for you. I have done this several dozen times and it helped reset the Instrument Cluster.
1. With the Key IN the Ignition and in the OFF (not On or Start)Position
2. Push in and hold-in the Trip Odometer Reset button.
3. When "sof 4.0" appears: release the Button and WAIT.
4. There maybe some "E" Codes that may appear.
5. Continue to let the System run its course. There should be a great light show on the dash along with the Tach and Speedometer needles dancing all over the place.
6. In about 30-seconds it will complete it's reset cycle.

Again let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions REPLY in the Comments Section of this Post.

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan Speedometer and Tach not working


sit in the drivers seat close the door. with the key off hold the trip odometer button in then while holding the button in turn the key on. if done correctly this will put the MIC (mechanical instrument cluster) into a self test. if the speedometer does not move like the rest of the gauges during this test the MIC must be replaced. if the speedometer does move it is likely your problem will be fixed, however, if the speedometer does move but it does not start working properly then further diagnostic will be needed.

Speedometer and tach


With the key in the off posistion press and hold the trip odometer reset button, the lights in the cluster will start to flash and the guages will do a self test. This should take care of your problem.
