You mentioned soldering the panel, is this what you had done? (see Below) If yes; I would suspect the BCM, Body Control Module, is giving you fits; best to replace with used unit from wrecking yard.
Best regards,
Tom

There has been issues with the solder joints on the PIN connection to the gauge cluster. The issue being that over time thru vibration and such one of these solder joints will fail (happened on our 1999) you can repair this though. You will have to remove all of the trim from around the driver's side dash board, this will include the trim towards the center of the dash. Once these pieces are remove you'll need to remove the gauge panel (I believe (4) allen head screws) carefully bring the panel and release the wire clip from it. (the wiring harness clip is held on by a small "red" plastic pin you'll need to pull back on to release) Looking at the back of the panel, where the plug was, carefully with plenty of light look for one of the pins to have a failed solder joint. It will be very faint however the failed joint will be a fine dark line around the pin. To correct use a small soldering iron and reheat this solder until it wants to flow, let it cool and reassemble. Often times when these PIN connections fail the ABS light will
illuminate; why though.I am uncertain

I hope this may have helped,
Tom
PS: If you check my profile you'll see I have helped others with this same issue, as I had to make this repair myself.
If this has helped, please let me know; Thanks!

98 plymouth van all panel gauges not working


You provide very limited information in your problem description, however, whenever I see any mention of dash gauges not working on these vehicles, I immediately suspect the soldered pins on the back of the instrument cluster circuit board. If you have also been having other trouble lights turning off and on erratically, then I would almost guarantee that this is the problem. Google "98 voyager instrument cluster solder" to find several posts describing how to fix your problem. It's rather simple, fairly quick, and free! I had this problem on my van recently and was amazed at how all problems were eliminated by re-soldering these pins.

You may have a bad cluster, check the battery connections at the battery and most important check power cable to the fuse/relay box in engine compartment, you will see where cable goes to a stud and nut, there it corriods,

Where is the PCM on a 98 plymouth voyager located


The pcm is located on the drivers side in behind the fuse/relay panel against the fenderwell. You will have to remove the screws holding the fuse/relay panel, and move it out of the way to get to the pcm if you decide to remove it. Make sure to disconnect the negative cable from the battery first before you do any type of work. Also make sure to ground yourself to the van body before you handle it. Without doing this will damage the pcm, (static electricity). hope this will help you.

None of the gauges will work on my 98 plymouth


This is because it is one of your main relay is bad. It is also part of the circuit that your starter is on.
This fuse panel is under the hood just to the left of the battery.

Guages and insturment panel stopped working on a 1998 plymouth


In the event that you have not completely fixed this problem, I suggest the following: Do a google search for "98 voyager instrument cluster solder" and you will find an abundance of posts regarding the soldered joints on the main terminal connector on the back of your instrument cluster. If the behaviour is at all erratic and unpredictable, or hitting the dash makes the gauges come back to life, then you are about 99.9% sure it is the solder problem. It takes about 8 minutes to remove the instrument cluster (okay maybe 15), and about 2 minutes to remove the circuit board. By examining the solder joints of the main connector with a magnifying glass, you will probably see cracked or corroded solder on them. Briefly reheat each solder joint with a soldering iron to re-flow the solder. Your erratic gauge behaviour should now be history.
