Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
I removed the positive post on my battery of my 2001 T&C to clean the corroded terminal. I DID NOT remove the negative terminal.
After hooking the battery terminal back up, the dashboard dials no longer work: SPeedometer, Tach, gas Gauge, Turn signals, etc.
Any suggestions short of simply checking the fuse (which I have yet to do).
For safety purposes always always remove the negative side first. This eliminates the possibility of shorting out your wrench against the body or any other negative charged part. There is strong possibility of shorting out the battery which could blow up. This happened to my brother as a kid and he ended up with battery acid in his eyes.
Try unhooking the negative side of the battery as this may reset any relays.
