Nothing works on my dashboard and i dont know where the fuses are for this


You can check fuses 28, 18, and 5 in the power distribution center under the hood.

I would suspect that you have bad solder joints in the main instrument cluster connector. It's a very common problem with a fairly easy fix.

The first thing you should try is start the vehicle and then firmly smack the top of the dash right above the instrument cluster with your hand. Do this a couple of times. If the dash comes to life or shows signs of coming to life than you probably have the bad solder joints.

Repairing is fairly easy as long as you have some basic mechanical skills and have some experience with a soldering iron. If you would like more info I would be happy to share it with you.

,have 1997 plymouth grand voyager, instrument cluster goes out while driving code #p1698, if u hit dashboard above cluster it usually comes on has 3,3 litre enginel


Sounds like you may have the dash cluster solder problem. Here's a link to some pictures of what needs to be done, but if you google Caravan dash soldering, or similar, there is more details out there.

I hooked my battery up backwards for a second, replaced blown fuses now i lost instument cluster on 1999 f 250 super duty


You may have damaged the cluster electronics or other items by sending power backwards through the system. I would double check all the fuses then disconnect the battery for a few minutes and hook it back up again to see if the cluster comes back to life. If it doesn't then you'll probably have to visit a good shop or dealership and have the cluster diagnosed to see if it has been damaged. I see a few computers and clusters damaged each winter from the same mishap. Sometimes they will come back to life and sometimes they have to be removed and repaired.

Will not maintain electrical charge. It works fine for a few months and then one day it has no power to start the engine. I hook up jumper cables and it instantly has power to hood light door beepers etc....


Check that all battery cables are clean and tight.

Check the date/age of battery, and compare to the rated life of the battery. If anywhere near the end of the rated life, suspect the battery. Suspect battery if all terminals are clean and tight.
