Many times, When electrics act up. it has to do with a ground problem. Fuses must be good you have power. Auto electrics like to have a single wire running to the device and then depend on a ground near by to grounded steel instead of a return wire. Loose grounds have no return and the device acts crazy and will be erratic, and not act properly. No where for the electricity to go. Eliminate the possibility of bad or missing grounds first, then get out an electric volt ohm meter, Start checking voltage, and eliminating things that have proper and constant voltage. Then look for bad devices. Just trying to save you some money. Electrical Trouble shooting can be time consuming and expensive. You can do it. lbreen

1997 plymounth grand voyager. My airbag light is on! Is there any recalls? Also my dash gages quit working.


Recalls only go back ten years. since you are having other dash problems, it probably time to replace the dash panel. They have computer chips in them that run most all the gauges and warning lights. I would get one from the salvage yard. they can tell you what years will work in the van

Dash lights flicker and or go out on 04 Chrysler Sebring Conv.


On thedash of my 2003 sedan sebring ,My dash ilumination lights for the speed,temp,tack\rpm and fuel are unlit.
I found that there is a paper thin plastic across and behind all four of these gauges which lights up all four gauges,if working correctly, There is a very poor connection to this thin film lighting system ,basicaly a wire terminal used as a staple and that very well could be your problem.
It as far as I know would require whole gauge assembly replacement! because dealers dont sell such small portions of some assemblies!
I myself will attempt to crimp this poor connection on my car without damaging thin film! there are no bulbs for those four gauges too iluminate!
