Yes Get to a good shop or dealer with a scan tool and have the code issues repaired first. Never leave any vehicle with a shop that has no interest in going on a road test for free FIRST. Be prepared to pay diagnostic fees and only after you hear the possible problems do you authorize them to proceed. Go there and have them prove to you all they tell you on the phone. Hard to do with a dealer. They should be able to print all scan results of your vehicle.

Radio suddenly doesn't work and instrument panel doesn't work

Ok, i had the same problem a few months back, in my case my car was only a year and a half old and had just washed the engine at the local carwash. Fuses were ok and battery was in new condition, we found out that water had reached the Alternator and this messed up the whole electric system, Some people say you can blow dry your alternator (If this is the case) or take it to an electrical technician

2003 Chrysler Town & Country Instrument panel keeps going on and off. Gauges peg out then go to zero and the odometer and the P123D lights go out. AFter about 15 seconds every thing comes back on, ...

Possible error in the dash cluster, the wiring, connectors or the panel electronics. If the fault occurs while driving could this be relative to the vibration of the instrument panel.If so you might have to have a very closer look without thinking of changing tthe whole unit.
tap within to see if the fault is recurring if so get closer to the area of contact.
