Question about 1992 Dodge Caravan

Open Question

I have a 1992 Dodge Caravan, the gauges quit working. I believe it has a bad circuit board and tried a used one but it didn't work. I need a wiring diagram for the instrument cluster so I can find the problem. All the fuses are good. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please email me with response to MrNissan66@aol.com. Thanks

SOURCE: INSTRUMENT CLUSTER

The red electrial connector on the main circuit board (of instrument cluster panel) has one and/or several soldered pins that have broken away or become loose at the soldered area. The soldered connections may look o.k., however, under a magnifying glass you can see a circular crack all around the protruding soldered pin. Fire up the soldering iron- use a fine point, add a tad of new rosin core solder and fix the crack. There may be trouble codes associated with this condition: P1695 and/or P1698; when you go to pull the Instument cluster out of the dash, jiggle to wire connector at the back of the IC with key 'on', and look at the odometer; if it flashes on/off, this is most likely the problem

Fuse? Otherwise sounds like an electrical short.

SOURCE: 97 Dodge Caravan Auto-Shutdown Problem

Been working on my dad's 97 Caravan longer then i can remember for things you mentioned and have been not able to get him to sell it.
I found that the electrical connections are prone to corrosion and have replaced lots of the wire and pin connection in the wire harness, thank god i have time on my hands.
The instrument panel where the wire harness connects, i found that the solder goes bad and i had to re solder the connector on the back side of the circuit board, where the harness goes so you need to remove the instrument panel from the dash,
Here is a link that can help you retrieve DTC codes and do research on your caravan. I'ld tell you everything what i needed to do to keep my dad's caravan running but that would be a novel. http://www.allpar.com/fix/stall.html

Good luck and keep me posted, glad to help you keep yours running too.

These vehicles seem to have a problematic short, my grandfather has the same vehicle with the same problem, i found the short under the carpet on the driver side of the vehicle, under the gas pedal, sometimes wires can crack and break.

Well if you checked all of the fuses, then most likely the wire harness that is plugged into you gauge cluster from inside the dash either came loose or your gauges cluster is faulty and blew out. I would check to see if that wire harness came loose and if it didnt then your probably going to have to replace that whole gauge cluster. Check around on ebay then are pretty cheap on there.

Why are my meter and speedometer is not work on my 2000 dodge caravan


Bad wiring in the gauge cluster (the "dash board"). You can 1: Live with it, 2: buy a new one for $500 or 3:pick one up at the junk yard for maybe $85. or you can have someone go through yours and possibly find the bad wire and re sodder... It's a loose grounding wire.

I have a 99 dodge caravan 3.3l the problem is that all the gauges will go off and sometimes wont come back on for days i did get a 1698 code


Since they come back on every now and then, I would say you have a loose wire somewhere. The circuit is probably behind the steering column. I would check all the wires and make sure none are loose. Check your grounds. The wires are black. I would replace the dash fuse also, just to be sure. You could have a wire going bad as well. You can check them with a voltage meter. If you have a question, please let me know. I am here to help. Thanks for using FixYa.

Everthing on my dash (speedometer,odometer,fuel


Blown Fuse or fried Circuit board. Take to a local AutoZone, Advance, Murray's, O'reillys or a similar part house for them to check the wiring. I'm assuming the van does not use a mechanical Speedometer or Fuel Gauge.

On the plus side, with no speedometer, your indicated odometer mileage does not increase. Just keep your speed down and your tank full. Kidding, just kidding.

My gauges don't work, on the instrument panel why?it's a 1994 dodge caravan 3.0 Liters, list of things that don't work are speedometer - gas - temperature - kilometers - I never know how much gas I have or...


There is a fuse for the instrument under the dash on the drivers side, if the fuse is good. Then give the dash a hit with your close fist right over the instrument panel, sometimes that brings it back to life. It's common for the wire harness clip on the instrument panel circuit board solder goes bad and need to be re soldered, the heat of the current after a few years will melt the solder and the clip comes loose and needs to be re solder back in place. Just remove the instrument panel from the dash, disconnect the wire harness and remove the circuit board and solder the clip back in place. Good luck and hope this helps. be glad to help.
