My speedometer and rpm gauge didn't work after my battery went dead, through research I was told to look and the gauges needle would be below the pin in the gauges (and they were) is this is true you can drill a small hole above the pin take a straightened out paper clip and lift the needle above the pin and my speedometer worked great, didn't try to fix my rpm gauge but my battery ran down about 6 months later and when I re-charged the battery the rpm started working again so I would take my battery cables off and let everything die and then re-start and see if this fixes the problem first.

Tach and speedometer both went out. Fuse is good. all other instruments are good. What could the problem be?

Check the battery is fully charged and in good condition, a slightly low voltage or not enough current can mess up the cars computer and the first things to suffer are usually the tacho and speedometer, as it gets worse you get misfires and lights flashing on and off.. any garage should test your battery for next to nothing.

97 town and country LXI mini van speedometer and tach not working

the cluster needs to be calibrated to the pcm before the speedo and tach will work. You will have to take it to the dealer to have it done. The last time I had to do it, it cost me 70 dollars.
