Turn signals on 2001 Chrysler Town & Country cause dash lights to come on and speedometer & odometer quit working

We were told to take the speedometer out and turn the needle all the way over. It worked great for a week. Then we used the turn signal and the same thing happened. The speedometer needle drops down and the tach and speedometer quit working and when we use the turn signal the dash lights all come on and the lighted dash goes out . The car runs alright and the headlights & tail lights work fine.

I would say its probably a short or a ground problem at the turn switch or a wire in that area. you need a test light and probably a multi meater and some nohow a ground or wireing problem can even drive a master teck crasy.

a scanner that gets into the instrument cluster computer can reset the needles. or take the dash apart and manually turn dash cluster upsidedown, then the needles will move so rotate untill the needles are reset.

SOURCE: The turn signals don't work most of the time,

check your accessory relay. Hopefully it isn't your power module. $1000 fix at chrysler. :(

Look for a bad ground...if you have a shop manual or sometimes the dealership will print you off that page, look for the major ground going to those devices.

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

SPEEDOMETER JUST QUIT. I REPLACED BOTH INPUT & OUTPUT SENSORS. I WAS TOLD THAT IF ONE OF THE SPEEDOMETER SENSORS GO OUT THE ENGINE LIGHT WILL COME ON. MY ENGINE LIGHT DID NOT COME ON. NOW I'M WORRIED.


The same happened on my Chrysler voyager just quit you have to reset it that was all it was on mine. I think my husband held the button in on the speedo/milage counter until you have lots of lights come up on your dash board it looks very pretty. This should reset your speedometer it did mine. Good luck

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.

The speedometer quit working on a 2001 town and country. I replaced the output sensor, but it still doesn't work. The check engine light is not on.... Any suggestions???


Try pressing the trip odometer reset button for 5 seconds. It will flash2.gif an error code. Then the odometer lights will flash, a bunch of error codes2.gif flash. Let it finish.

I found this on fixya before, and it worked for my van. I didn't replace anything.
