Speedometer not working

2002 TOWN & COUNTRY SPEEDOMETER does not work. I have found several instrument clusters on-line are they interchangeable year to year? Where can I get a part number for the replacement cluster? Thanks John

The instruments in my Town & Country stopped working a few days ago, and I was preparing to replace the cluster because, in addition to the instruments not working, the odometer & PRNDL were on solid even after turning off & removing the key.

The symptoms before the fix were:
- Tach, speedometer, fuel gauge & temp gauge didn\'t work. (temp & fuel stayed at the 3/4 mark, which was probably their last reading.)
- Only the 2 highest digits of the odometer & the 3 highest(?) digits of the PRNDL indicated.
- A door ajar light showed up later, even though all doors were securely closed.
- The odometer & PRNDL were on solid even after turning off the ignition & removing the key.

The fix was to remove & reinsert a fuse in the under-hood fuse holder, but I\'m not certain which of the 5 smaller fuses toward the firewall reset the problem. (I had removed them to check for blown fuses.) Removing the battery connection probably also worked.

That successful attempt sure beat the time & work involved with removing & repairing or replacing the instrument cluster.

I would hold off on trying to buy a new or used instrument cluster unless your sure thats the problem.... your vehicle is equipped with a speed sending unit and that can be faulty ask your self is the other functions of the cluster working? tachometer, fuel, lights etc? then may only be sending unit for speed have it checked out by a pro or follow instructions of troubleshooting section of your repair manual I always try to keep it simple did you check the fuses and relays? then move on from there. If it is sending unit or cluster heres a place I have used for years to get hceap good used and new parts Peach street autorecycling 18003652341 ggod luck and dont forget to rate me if I have helped.

Speedometer stopped working after fitting an alarm. What could be the problem?


Put everything back the way it was and see if speedometer starts working again?
Newer instrument clusters, the gages are not hardwired, The cluster receives buss data telling the instrument what to do with gages and speedometer. Checking the speedometer/vss sending unit would be a thought. Hopefully, you didn't hurt the instrument cluster?
What is year--make--model?

Where is the speedometer sensor


I have seen several neons with this issue. The instruments will stop working on ocassion or all together. I have found that the instrument cluster or wiring connector to the cluster can become slightly loose causing the speedometer to stop working. I would recommend putting slight inward pressure on the cluster when this happens to see if it has any effect. If the speedometer starts working I would advise turning your attention to the plug on the back side of the cluster to remove the slight movement that the plug mount allows.

Why doesn't my instrument panel work properly. It goes on and off


sounds like you may have a instrument cluster panel problem and will have to go to a shop that can fix it. its possible that there is a contact problem with the cluster to body connection.

Check the instrument cluster fuse located underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Flip over the fuse box cover lid and you will find a diagram showing what fuse controls your speedometer cluster. Remove the fuse and replace with the same number amp

Instrumental panel not working


the car will needs to be hooked up to a scan tool to check the dash cluster communication on the cars computer bus . see, the dash cluster now is another computer itself that must talk to the body and the main engine computer via the bus comm. line.

2003 chrysler town & country speedometer stuck


sit in the drivers seat close the door. with the key off hold the trip odometer button in then while holding the button in turn the key on. if done correctly this will put the MIC (mechanical instrument cluster) into a self test. if the speedometer does not move like the rest of the gauges during this test the MIC must be replaced. if the speedometer does move it is likely your problem will be fixed, however, if the speedometer does move but it does not start working properly then further diagnostic will be needed.
