Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan
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.
