    I simply removed cluster and used a pair of needlenose pliers to slightly twist all the male spades in the back of it where the connector , connects, so as to make a better more reliable connection between them. Then I was concerned the connector was not reaching spades completely, so I fed connector harness through the hole that it clips to the back of, and let it sit on the edge on the front side of hole, rather than back side, thus allowing it to be pushed in to spades on cluster further, then re-installed the cluster. Between twisting the spades, and the fact that when connected that way, it will slide on spades a slight bit further, my problem was gone. All that plastic, seemed to expand and contract with different weather conditions, and that's when it would start to happen. Once i did that, no more problems.

My '98 does this all the time. There must be a harness loose because it happens when I hit rough bumps.

Odometer, tachometer, speedometer, and gas gauge suddenly stopped working.


Sounds like the body control module has gone bad. It has a relay that caries considerable current to all of these accesories and wears out.
It can also be a solder joint on the circuit board where this relay mounts.
Hope this helps, Robert

Speedometer of 2003 dodge neon does not work and gas gauge is jumpy. replaced 2 input and output vss sensors and still won't work. no codes show on scanner


some of these have had problems with the dash assembly causing alot of problems with gauges and lights and speedometers.if there are no codes in the computer and weren`t any before you replaced the vss sensors then you spent money you didn`t need to.

Does the 96 neons have a speedometer cable??? if so how do you change it


How handy are you? Takes about an hour total to fix & no dirty hands. I had to do my own fix to my 95' neon about 3 times & on the last one I tried something different & never had a problem again, & sold it about 3 years later still working. If your up to it, I'll give you instructions. You have to pull speedo cluster out of dash , but it's pretty simple really. Let me know.
