My 1998 Plymouth Voyager's intrument panel gauges are not working and the ABS light in on. When this has happened before, I have disconnected the battery, waited a few minutes and connected it back up. This usual fixed the problem. Now this does not work either.

Don't know how handy you may be but would seriously consider removing instrument cluster, and checking solder on circuit board. Just did mine, wasn't hard, maybe a couple of hours work. Nice small, pointed solder gun will be needed as well. They have had many weird problems with gauges, starting, running etc, all narrowed down to that printed circuit board, where the solder on the contact pins become corroded or cracked and cause some pretty weird stuff. At the very least, try removing dash enough to remove 4 screws holding cluster in, and pulling off connectors and putting them back on a couple of times, just in case it's just a dirty connection. If you decide you want to try it, and need more specific instructions, let me know, or even google , Dodge or Plymouth instrument cluster soldering, as there is some pictures and videos out there on the subject. Good Luck, and let me know how you make out.

My 1998 plymouth voyager came with abs brake system, can I change it over to manual brakes? If so what is the best way to do this?


To answer specifically, this kindof already happens if your ABS system is not working. When the ABS system is not working your brakes should go into a "manual mode". You could have the ABS unit removed and new brake lines installed, but for a 1998 voyager, I wouldn't bother. Keep in mind though, you don't have anti-lock anymore. So drive this vehicle accordingly. Don't slam on the brakes and be ready to ease up on them if they should cause the tires to slip.

You have some wiring problems shorting out that is coming from the dash board so if you or anyone you know how to use a multimeter to check the wireing harnesses plus check any connectors that might be just very touching the connector of dashboard which means a bad connection to dashboard.

1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager instrument cluster problem


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.
As I fore mentioned I had the exact same issue as you are describing, our is a 99. The most tricky part is the dash, take your time with it.
I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

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.

It can be several things. Te simple one is that the connector behind the cluster is loose. The other is the circut board that makes up the cluster is going bad. Try disconnecting the cluster and re connecting. If this does not work, try replacing it with a sed one from a salvage yard or from ebay.
