You have a defective body control module, this must be replaced and tested by the dealer, the new module requires programming to your van or u will have a no start.

I have a 2002 Saturn sc2 coupe, none of the interior instrument cluster/dash lights work. I am havinf a heck of a time finding a fuse box diagram, which fuse controls those lights? The panel doesn't h


The fuse panel is on the side of the dash where the drivers door opens up. The cover is right there. The diagram is on the back of the fuse panel cover. It will say cluster or dash Lts. If fuse is good try turning dimmer dial on left side of dash, it may be turned down just below gas guage

ABS light turns on a 1998 dodge grand caravan and the guages stop working


You definately sound as though you have an electrical short. I would have a mechanic do an electrical test.

The guages don't work, then, at any given time, they will just begin working. Nothing on the dash will work...no tach., speedo, temp, gas guage and automatic door locks...nothing. Then, out of the blue, as...


You have to remove the under hood fuse / relay box and disassemble , check for broken / corroded wires in the harness plugs at the bottom and broken solder joints at the board. I have repaired many of these for the same problem. hope this helps8c02778.jpg

Door light in dash stays on, interior lights don't work and auto locks wont engage.


hi ya it seems one of the door switches is broken or disengaged on each door frame you will find a push in switch witch operates the interior light, door warning light on dash and remote locking if one of them is not working it will show on dash as a door not closed it will prevent the interior light from working and also stop the auto locking system from working properly the locking system is connected to the interior lights
Hope yhis helps

Dash /guages /speedo not working and abs light on and door locks


I have the same problem with a 1997 Dodge Caravan. However I don't agree with solution 1 given. Your problem is different then the person in solution 1. His vehicle would not start when the problem occured....our problem is the guages and door lock only work when they are in the mood. They won't work and then suddenly as driving down the road the door locks lock and the guages come on and it may be fine for a week. There are 2 speed sensors on the front on of the tranny.....One speed sensor controls trans shifting and that one is ok or you van would not shift. I thinking you may to check other speed sensor......
The second solution has some merit check and fuses.....

04 jeep gc interior lights stay on, power windows,locks not work


Common issue with the early 2000 series Jeep is the window/door lock control on driver side goes dead when the thick guage wires in door become brittle and break from continually opening and closing the door. Had both the ground and hot wires break over the years and both are fixed by making a simple jumper connection with a little extra length added.

Fixing is relativly easy if you know how to crimp wire connectors otherwise you my want someone more experience to help.
Open door, pull back rubber sheath and expose wire harness, unclip the plastic retaining clip and pull out wire harness and located which wire has broken (typically the thick black or orange wire) . Prepare both ends for crimp connector and make a jumper with small peice of heavy guage wire and crimp connector of either end then connect each end to either side of broken wire, tuck wires back in, replace retaining clip and rubber sheath.

You can find videos on youtube showing how to fix

1996 Dodge caravan--dash guages flicker


In responding to rbenjami, I am not proposing the same solution for all who claim to have a similar problem because I don't believe that that is the case. When the gauges flicker periodically it may be a case of a bad body computer, which is a big deal and may be covered by warranty beyond the normal 3 yr./36k miles. For those with issues related to use of seat warmers, that is not uncommon and should lead to discontinued use.
