Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck
My gauges quit working on my 2000 Ram 1500 and while troubleshooting the problem I removed the DIN plug located in the fuse box underneath the hood. It is the one with a phillips head screw in it. I examined the conenectors and everthing appeared in order. I reseated the plug and tightened the screw back up. I cranked the truck and everthing worked perfectly. I suspect that the connectors may work loose over a period of time and noticed that when tightening the screw it made a slip when overtightened much like a locking gas cap. Tighten the screw until just before it slips. Hopefully this will help a lot of dissapointed Dodge owners.

Hi my name is Allen!
Before doing any of the repairs below unplug the Crank Sensor and look at the cluster and see if everything works, if it does replace the crank sensor, if not read on.
The instrument cluster for that year is the BCM "Body Control Module" Which is the most likely cause for this problem, but keep in mind that another module gone bad can also bring down the BUS. Here is what you do, unplug each control module one at a time and see if the BUS comes back, unplug one look at the cluster to see if it comes back to life. If after unplugging each module and the cluster is still down then the most likely repair is replacing the cluster.
For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!
