    My 1999 Caravan has/had same issue. Intermittently the dash lights go out. The scary part is that the parking lights also go out leaving the rear of the vehicle dark. Sometimes playing with instrument light dimmer switch cleared problem but not always. Installed used headlight switch and headlights became a problem. Reinstalled original switch pending a solution.

    We recently are having the same problem, but about the same time we lost the use of our wipers and turn signals. Occasionally the wipers and the signals will work. makes for a very difficult time when trying to drive in the rain or the snow.

2008 dodge caravan will not crank. AC, lights, radio all works. I can put in gear.


You probably have a problem with your Wireless Control Module. These fail quite often. If you have it replaced, you will probably need new keys. In order to replace it though, you need the Chrysler-specific scan tool and you will need the PIN code for the vehicle. The PIN code can only be retrieved from Chrysler. For these reasons, I recommend taking it to a dealer.

Hope this helps!

Instrument panel lights out on 01 Dodge Grand


These vans have had issues with the PIN connections to the instrument clusters. With time the solder on the main PIN connection will begin to fail. The good news this may be repaired at home. First you'll need to remove the instruments. To do so remove the dash components from around the instruments then the (4) screws) that hold the instruments in place. Carefully detach the wire connection from the back of it; take to a well lit area. Look for a PIN with a failed solder joint (this will appear as a slight black or grey circle. If found apply heat and let solder be gin to flow; the allow to cool and reassemble. If you look at my history you'll see I've helped others with this issue.
