First thing I would have checked is the charging system, battery load test, alternator charging, all connections to battery cleaned & checked, as well as any ground straps connected from engine to frame, or firewall.

Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.

Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.

SOURCE: Everything works except the gages and the odometer

it can be a cluster problem or maybe an electrical problem check to make sure your having a current through the electrical first before guessing. Also check your users manual if you have a fuse for it and make sure it needs to be replaced.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the suggestion, I replaced any fuse that had anything do do with instrumentation, so the electric supply to the cluster is bad...."

When i start my 1998 dodge grand caravan my headlights,taillights,dash-lights start blinking off and on . why is this happening?


It is due to the hvac being out of calabration. On the left side of the A\C control panel hold down the top and bottoms buttons with the engine running, high blower, panel, full cold (both levers if so equipped). When the lights on the panel come on solid and then start flashing release buttons. It will take about 2 mins or less for it to calibrate. If only the top left button is flashing you are done. Press that button once or restart van all function should be normal.

My 1997 dodge caravan will start then it will die when this happens none of the gages work, also when i am driving it the gages will quit working help this has left me sitting with the kids in the car


The instrument cluster needs to be replaced. However, it'll have to be removed to determine the color of the plug in the back. 1997 is usually red. If you hit the dash above the instrument cluster (with the key in the run position) you'll see the gauges come on (sometimes it has to be hit a few times) and it'll get you where you have to go. I only suggest hitting it a a diagnostic technique of to get you back home. I hope I've helped. You can check my testimonials if this seems somewhat unorthodox. I'll admit that it is, but it works. The instrument cluster contacts most likely have small cracks in them. Do the lights on the temperature controls flash also? Thanks for using Fixya. Please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial.

2002 caravan stalled, faulty gas gage added fuel ran for 2 blocks, stalled added 4 more gallons non-ethanol - no start checked fuel pump fuses & relay had towed 2 miles - started fine! ideas?...


Looks like your fuel supply line has got chocked. This happens when the dirt from the gas tank comes into the fuel line when the tank is getting empty as it has happened in your case. Check your fuel filter and replace if required.

Dash gages dies and comes back on it's own


This is a common problem with 1996-2000 Caravans. The fix is to disassemble the dashboard, remove the instrument cluster and resolder the connectors between the two circuit boards on the cluster. Usually you can see a black ring around one or more of the pins going through the circuit board. This is know as a cold solder joint. This means doing some dis-assembly of the cluster too. It may sound hard to do, but it is a lot easier than shelling out hundreds of dollars to mechanics who can't find the problem. Having a Philips head screwdriver (+), soldering gun and a bit of solder, the job took me (not a mechanic) about 1.5 hours to do this from start to finish. It has been over a year now with no problems with the gages.
