Cluster lighting went out on 2005 dodge grand caravan
The lighting in the cluster pack went out but only on the left side behind the fuel gauge. the rest of the cluster ( odometer ,rpm & thermostat gauges) seem fine.
i am not sure if this would be a fuse problem or a bulb problem if there is any accesible in the cluster.
just finding ingo before tearing into it.

the fuel level sensor is a float off the side of the fuel sender. over time these floats can become weak at the pivot point and read inaccurately. fuel sender should be replaced to correct this problem
There is a known problem with dash cluster solder cracking in some of the Dodge vehicles in and around that year. I would recommend removing the dash cluster and re-heating solder on the main connector joints on opposite side of circuit board/cluster. Use a small soldering gun to be more precise where you re-heat. Simply hold tip on spot until you see it puddle again, then let cool. I did them all to be safe, but you may see the cracked one or few by simply looking close with magnifying glass or similar. If you google it, there are even videos out there as well as pictures to help. ( dodge dash cluster soldering ) is one thing to google.
This Seems Indicative Of a Poor Connection AT The CLUSTER Or A Junction Connecter Close to the Cluster. This is Assuming you Have Ruled OUT ALL ABS COMPONENTS, LOOK at These VERY CLOSLY Because of the Small Volts These Wires Carry , the SMALLEST DEFECT WILL Cause this Type of Symptom that you have given. Please try all of the Above, I feel Confedint that athis is where your Problem Is.
the level sending unit in the tank is attached to the fuel pump module it is a varible resistor it moves as fuel level changes this sending unit can be replaced but if your going to the trouble of replacing it you just as well replace the fuel pump it comes together.
remove the black trim around the cluster.. then remove the 4 srews that hold the cluster in the dash.. the bulb will twist out of the back of the cluster main board. the new one will just twist back in and then re-install the cluster to dash and then the bezel
there is no fuse for only the fuel gauge light. the fuse for the panel illumination is all on the same fuse so if only one part of the panel is out then its will be a bulb or diode behind the gauge that has failed.
