2007 Grand Vitara. When my wife is driving, her speedometer and all of her dashboard needles will be working and then all turn off. Is this a short or a bigger problem with the cluster?

It may be a short, but it also could be a malfunction in the computer. I wouldn't rule out the computer even if the engine is running perfectly. Check for loose wiring though, if you can, up under the dash. Try to wiggle some wires around to see if it improves or gets worse, that should tell you weather its a short or loose wire problem.

SOURCE: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager instrument cluster problem

There has been issues with the solder joints on the PIN connection to the gauge cluster. The issue being that over time thru vibration and such one of these solder joints will fail (happened on or 1999) you can repair this though. You will have to remove all of the trim from around the driver's side dash board, this will include the trim towards the center of the dash. Once these pieces are remove you'll need to remove the gauge panel (I believe (4) allen head screws) carefully bring the panel and release the wire clip from it. Looking at the back of the panel, where the plug was, carefully with plenty of light look for one of the pins to have a failed solder joint. It will be very faint however the failed joint will be a fine dark line around the pin. To correct use a small soldering iron and reheat this solder until it wants to flow, let it cool and reassemble.
As I fore mentioned I had the exact same issue as you are describing, our is a 99. The most tricky part is the dash, take your time with it.
I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

SOURCE: Dashboard Instrument cluster does not work.

there are 2 large terminal plugs with the wiring for all the instruments that are plugged into the back of that panel. make sure they are snug and in place. You reach in and under but it may easier to "simply" remove the cluster. 4 screws hold it in place accessible form underneath and with a long phillips screwdriver and lighting.

SOURCE: speedometer needle is stuck behind the pin

Here is how it happens, The positive battery cable was loose, after adjusting the battery cable the speedometer needle went under the retention ping.
How to fix it:
1- remove the positive battery cable
2- have a person to look at the speedometer needle
3- Make the battery cable to touch the positive terminal of the battery (this will make the needle to jump over the retention pin)
4- Tight cable again.

SOURCE: the speedometer (dashboard gages) on

Is it the whole cluster not working at all or is it just the speedometer not working? If its just the speedometer it could be simply the vehical speed sensor if its the whole cluster there most like is a problem within the cluster causing it not to work, firstly i would check all the fuses for the instrument panel and make sure there all good, check the plug behind going into the cluster and make sure its secure, if all of that checks out then you might be looking at a replacement on the whole cluster assembly, which is not a cheap item....

Sounds like you may have the dash cluster solder problem. Here's a link to some pictures of what needs to be done, but if you google Caravan dash soldering, or similar, there is more details out there.

You need to remove the radio/cd player from the dashboard and open the CD player to get the CD out.
You can remove the whole front panel. 6 screws at each side underneath the alu xxxxx must be removed. After this the whole panel can be mover forward and the connectors on the backside can be disconnected. Now you are ready for opening the radio/cd player. tahe of the top cover and remove the cd
