Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country

2 Answers

Had to jumpstart my van this morning and noticed the speedometer wasn't working after that. It looks like the pointer flipped past the peg at the 0 and hangs on the peg. Is this something easily fixed?

I hate to disagree with a colleague, but if it was working fine before, you may have shorted the circuit. When you jumped the battery, you did have all of the accessories inside turned off, right? Did you happen to cross the terminals and get a big shower of sparks? If so, that is where your trouble is coming from. Does the tach and fuel gauge work, if not, check the fuse block (next to the battery) and see if you have a blown fuse to the instrument cluster.(it's a 20 amp fuse)

Speedometer not working


If the speedo and odometer do not work, the problem is usually the speed sensor in the transmission. If the odometer works but not the speedo, the problem is usually inside the speedometer assembly.

Why does my 2004 grand cherokee speedometer suddenly rests at 10 mph instead of 0


Somehow the cable and assembly for the speedometer has become dis calibrated for lack of a better word, U might want to check if the meter has a calibration adjustment on it and if so resetting it for zero with a still vehicle.

2001 dodge grand caravan sport.Grandkids left light on and killed Battery. Jumped the van got it started notice this morning going to work my Radio and speedometer isnt working.Checked fuses but none...


Make sure to check the engine compartment fuses and the inside fusebox, if all the fuses look good then try to unhook the battery and then connect it back on and start the van and see if this helps. the radio is it asking for a code, if this radio has antitheft then you will need to install the code to make it work, look at manual and it will tell you how to do this. the code is entered using the preset staition buttons, there should be a card in the glovebox with the radio code if it has antitheft. if you find no bad fuses then you may have short out the cluster jumping it, but most of the time it just needs a fuse or reseting by removing neg battery terminal for about 2min, good day let me know the outcome.

Speedometer went all the way around clockwise when starting


It sounds like it needs to be recalibrated. With the key out of the ignition, push in the trip mileage counter for 5 seconds. You should get a reading in the mileage counter which is the computer software version (such as sho2.3). Release the counter and you should see all the instruments and lights go through a self-diagnosis. After this stops, it the needle should go back to 0.

2001 grand caravan sport speedometer and tachometer not working


My van did the same thing. Actually the gauge had spun all the way around to the back side of the little peg that the needle rest on. To fix it I took the face of the dach board apart with a screw driver and rotated the needle by hand back to zero and its worked fine ever since..
