Question about 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager
Sometimes the gauges will not come on when the van is started but turning the van off and back on again fixes that.But lately I have been driving down the road and all the gauges drop back like the van is off and then the van cuts out on me and will usually start again after a few minutes but lately it takes more time to restart. Does anybody know what might be the cause of this?
What year and model is the van? If it's a 97-2001 caravan, then there were issues with the clusters cloking up, usually from an electrostatic discharge. Generally they would still run, just could'nt use the gauges. There is a printed circuit board on the back of the cluster that is succeptable to electric spikes. The most common cause is a spike induced from the secondary ignition cables into the main engine wiring harness. Look at the ignition wires on the rear of the engine, they may be routed too close to the harness under the upper intake plenum. The data bus wires run between all of the modules on the van and any electrical spike can cause this. There was also issues with spikes from the door lock actuators/latches. If they're buzzing when you hit the power locks this may be your problem.
