This appears to be a common problem especially on the 2002 year model. There is either a bad solder connection on the display in the cluster or a defect in the resistors. The cluster is really simple to remove. See: http://tinyurl.com/2dupvmn - next, do a Internet search for a repair center in your area. See: www.instrumentclusters.com

Good luck!

I just had the trans on my 1998 caravan fixed. 4 days later my did not turn on I turned the key and just clicks. The speedometer light states trip odometer.. reset. what does that mean?


It sounds like you have a dead battery.
The trip odometer thing is simply your information center asking you if you want to reset your trip odometer. If you did not initiate this by pressing the information/reset button, then the low battery condition could have caused the information center to "default" to this part of the menu. (Computers tend to get delirious when they are suffering from malnutrition.)

Hello, The following steps you need are as follows:

Step 1: Place the key in the ignition and move the key to Position I.

Step 2: While keeping the key at Position 1, press and hold the reset button for the trip odometer. You will find that button located where the speedometer is.

Step 3: While still holding the button for the trip odometer, move the key to Position II.

Step 4: At this point, wait until the service light is flashing, it should take about 5 seconds for this to occur. When it hits its 3rd or 4th flash, move the key back to Position I.

Step 5: Release the button for the trip odometer. Next, start the car and you will notice the service light should be reset. If not, try it again. It may take more than one time to get this light reset. Good Luck!

Hope this works for you (it should), happy holidays!

Re set service light on a 2005 V 50


1. Press in and hold the odometer reset button.
2. Turn on the ignition to the run positon - not all the way to the start positon.
3. After about 15 seconds the orange "I" light (that warns the service needed message is present) begins to flash.
4. While it is flashing release the odometer button - if you do not do it in time the light stops flashing and will not reset.
5. Then turn off the ignition.
