I expect the is should do it for you.

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 or 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. 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.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

I have an 01 Pontiac Azteca the problem is everytime I put the car in gear it shuts the dash lights and radio light off, any idea what could cause this?


A bad or lose ground ! Checking a wiring diagram would show if these thing's share a common ground . Transmission , instrument cluster lighting an the radio lights up with the instrument cluster . You can go onto youtube an check out videos on how to read a wiring diagram , how to do voltage drop testing , basic automotive electrical circuit testing . Then you could go to http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams an test the instrument panel back lighting circuits ! You will need a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an you will more then likely need to take parts of your instrument panel apart . Your probably better off taking your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

Instrument panel froze up. Doesn't move back to zeros when engine is shut off.


YOU'RE IN LUCK!!! There's a recall for the instrument cluster on this vehicle.

Take it to the dealer and it shouldn't cost you anything for the repair.

You will need a cross point screw driver

  • 1 Remove the two screws on the underside of the top of the trim panel surrounding the dash and instrument panel.
  • 2 Pull the trim piece off the dash.
  • 3 Remove the four screws that hold the instrument panel in the dashboard using a cross point screwdriver.
  • 4 Slide the dashboard instrument panel forward and disconnect the electrical connector from the back of the dashboard.
  • 5 Turn the instrument panel over.
  • 6 Turn the base of the dashboard light bulb counterclockwise to unlock it from the instrument panel and pull it out of the panel to remove it.
  • 7 Insert a new light bulb into the back of the panel, and turn the bulb clockwise to lock it into the panel.
  • 8 Plug the electrical connector back into the instrument panel and slide the panel back into the dashboard.
  • 9 Secure the panel with the factory mounting screws and replace the trim and trim-mounting screws using a screwdriver.

    Back up lights ,instrument panel


    My reverse lights went out as well on my 98. There is a sensor that engages the backup lights when the car is put in reverse. It is located under the battery and it is a pain to get to, but we were able to locate it and correct the sensor where it would engage the reverse lights. This is likely the cause of your problem as well. You will probably need a dodge neon repair manual if you don't have one, if you want to locate the sensor yourself, or better yet, just let a mechanic pull the battery and do all the boring stuff for you. I would suspect the charges would be nominal. As far as your instrument panel, that happened to me as well. I pulled the dash off and removed the entire instrument panel and cleaned all the connections with electrical contact cleaner, available at auto parts store. This corrected my problems with the instrument panel. I can also highly recommend not whacking your dashboard when your instrument panel doesn't work, as it can cause your car to completely shut off! Learned that one the hard way! Hope this helps.
