This is caused by a problem with the BCM (body control module), do the following, if that doesn't reset the BCM then u will need to have the dealer replace and program a new BCM.

Open your hood and look for the fuse and relay center just above the battery. Open the cover and look for a fuse called IOD and/or Memory IOD. It usually located away from the front (towards the top of the block) in the center, they are labeled . Remove the IOD fuse for 20 seconds and then reinsert. The BCM becomes hung and this will reset it in a lot of cases. Let us know how it works out

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.

ALWAYS check the body grounds first. Ground to the dash gages could be faulty, dirty, or just not tight enough to make a good connection.

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

My speedo has not been working today all the other gages went out and after about 4 hours started working again


It sounds like the connection to your dash gage may have gone lose do to everyday vibration. If everything was running fine without any check engine or service engine soon, then it's your dash gage. Before your start your truck and the key'sare in the run possition, your gages should move up then down checking it's self. Keep a eye on that. Good luck. easy fix dubble check connection.
