Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

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 I drive, the doors will lock and the guages will start working. I've checked the fuses. Any ideas?

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 helpsThe guages don't work, then, - 8c02778.jpg

Instruments don't work, key stuck in ignition, doesn't shift correctly


Sounds like you need a new car.
With joking aside, the problem with your speedo, tach, gas guage, temp gauge and odometer can probably be one of two things. Check your fuses. If they are fine you may need to replace your cluster panel. I had to have the entire thing changed over my speedo not working right. It was not cheap. You might want to check the relay box under the hood. Does your transmission leak? Check the fuses and relay on it also. Get a new ignition switch and replace the old one if your key is stuck. You can try WD40 on that key but don't expect any miracles. The bearings are likely shot. Sorry I posted all of this bad news. Good luck.
