I know that there have been issues with cold solder joints on some Chrysler instrument panels of this era. There is a very good Chrysler/Dodge user website that will have instructions. Fixing Dodge Chrysler Plymouth 3G Minivan Instrument Clusters and HVAC

1999 dodge caravan gauges are all mest up


Could be different problems.
The cluster issue could be a problem in the printed circuit board inside the cluster.
The cooling fan problem could be low coolant, a blown fuse, a faulty temp sensor, fan motor, or relay.

On my 1997 dodge grand caravan, sometimes the dash lights go our and all the gauges, speedometer, gas gauge, go out but at the same time the abs light is on, if the abs light stays off all the gauges work,...


Yes it is a loose wire or plug. Next time it happens try hitting/smacking the top of the dash, or the steering column, ect. to try at least to located where the problem might be. This works sometimes. Electrical issues can be a nightmare. There is no quick and easy fix. I do alot of electrical and it can take 15 minutes (if your lucky) a whole day if your not. Most jobs I do take an average of 4 to 5 hours.

The dash lights and gauges in the dash are not working properly, gas gauge will say 1/8 and be empty. Periodically they will all fall to 0 on all gauges and stay there till you smack the top of the dash...


Hello it sounds like a ground or connection problem to you dash cluster. I would pull the front driver side dash board appart and unscrew the the instrument cluster check wiring for being loose or corroded at the plugin. if that checks out good no corrosion the instrument cluster itself might have a problem. I seen the instrument cluster go bad before that is probably it.

My '97 Dodge Caravan dash gauges will quit {sometimes} for no apparent reason.VERY frustrating when trying to watch your speed or trying to remember how much gas you got. Also radio cuts on and off.


A ground wire would be a good place to start. Connectors leaving the dash back towards the fuse panel...wiggle the connectors and see if you can duplicate the problem. If you do, that is where you make the repair.

Dashboard gauge


check the grounds on your fuel tank sending unit,must drop the tank to do this. with the tank down,remove the ground and look at your fuel gauge it should read full or empty,if it does not it may be a sending unit
