I have the same problem of the instrument panel not working. Sometimes it will work and sometimes not. I have been able to get it working by banging on the dashboard in the past, but that is not working at the moment. Any ideas what might be causing this?

Try actually replacing the instrument panel fuse. Sometimes the open link is very small and hard to see. If this doesn't work try and find the instrument cluster connector and make sure that it is tight. Sometimes over time, if it wasn't latched all the way, it can work loose especially if there have been some wide temperature fluctuations where you are.
I have had this happen on my 98 Voyager. Just have a new key cut. This new key will sometimes cure the problem. The older keys get worn out and won't unlock the ignition. Try this before a much more expensive and time consuming change of the ignition.
You provide very limited information in your problem description, however, whenever I see any mention of dash gauges not working on these vehicles, I immediately suspect the soldered pins on the back of the instrument cluster circuit board. If you have also been having other trouble lights turning off and on erratically, then I would almost guarantee that this is the problem. Google "98 voyager instrument cluster solder" to find several posts describing how to fix your problem. It's rather simple, fairly quick, and free! I had this problem on my van recently and was amazed at how all problems were eliminated by re-soldering these pins.
It can be several things. Te simple one is that the connector behind the cluster is loose. The other is the circut board that makes up the cluster is going bad. Try disconnecting the cluster and re connecting. If this does not work, try replacing it with a sed one from a salvage yard or from ebay.
