U will need to enter the radio anti theft code, this lock out was triggered by the loss of voltage to the radio during the battery change, this code is unique to each radio and cam in the owners information packet when the cat was sold new.

SOURCE: Instrument panel lights out on 01 Dodge Grand

These vans have had issues with the PIN connections to the instrument clusters. With time the solder on the main PIN connection will begin to fail. The good news this may be repaired at home. First you'll need to remove the instruments. To do so remove the dash components from around the instruments then the (4) screws) that hold the instruments in place. Carefully detach the wire connection from the back of it; take to a well lit area. Look for a PIN with a failed solder joint (this will appear as a slight black or grey circle. If found apply heat and let solder be gin to flow; the allow to cool and reassemble. If you look at my history you'll see I've helped others with this issue.

I HAVE A 1999 CARAVAN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER GAUGES ARE NOT WORKING. IT USED TO WORK ON AND OFF. WHEN I START IN THE MORNING THE GUAGES & SPEEDOMETER & THE GEAR SHIIFT POSITION INDICATOR WORK...


Yes you are ru=ight about cold solder joints. as you might be handy working on cars youcan try to fix it yourself, But if your not handy with tools andintricate things you best leave this work to those that are. Remove the instrument cluster, leavingthe wiresconnected. turn the key on and push on the electrtrical connecteras you watch the gauges that are/nt working. If the serial bus weren't makig a connection then the check engine light would beon, or is it? Wigh the key off disconnect the electrical connector and the pins that plug in I scrach them by pulling lightly on the with treaded needle nosed pliers slipping off till they are all a little ruoghted up. Reconnect and try again. Sometimes afterhavingthe cluster disconnected ou may needto disconnect the battery sothe ECM will look for the cluster again. This is a common problem but ther's many varaitions of reconnecting including using a true scanner to cycle the gauges in an output test.

1996 Grand Am dash cluster DEAD.. tach,odometor,fuel gau


I had a similar problem with mine. I had to replace the instrument cluster. The "new" cluster will need to be programmed to the pcm. If it is not programmed, the car will start and immediately flood out and die.
