Could be different problems.
The cluster issue could be a problem in the printed circuit board inside the cluster.
The cooling fan problem could be low coolant, a blown fuse, a faulty temp sensor, fan motor, or relay.

Location of fan relay on mt 99 dodge grand caravan 3.8 l motor ?

Thank you for the inquiry.
Fan control is accomplished two ways. A pressure transducer on the compressor discharge line sends a signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) which will activate the fan. In addition to this control, the fan is turned on by the temperature of the coolant which is sensed by the coolant temperature sensor which sends the message to the PCM. The fan will not run during cranking until the engine starts no matter what the coolant temperature is.

CAUTION: The solid state fan relay is attached to the left frame rail near the lower radiator support. The relay bracket, and fastener are used to dissipate heat from the relay. Ensure the relay is properly attached to prevent the following:

Intermittent engine overheating.
Relay "thermal" shutdown, or relay damage.

Hope helps; keep us updated and remember to rate this answer.

Fan is not shutting off when van is turned off; not overheating; suggested looking at thermo coupler; need diagram for location

The fan is control by a solid state fan relay. The relay is located on the drivers side either by the radiator where the lower trans cooler line attaches or behind the front bumper cover. You can trace the fan wiring to the location.

The relays are known to go bad and either cause the fans to stay on or cause the fans not to work at all.

They are available after market and most good parts stores will have them in stock.

My Dodge Carivan with 240000 miles is overheating when stopped in traffic cools back down when running at normal speeds I replaced the thermostate and am afraid it may be the head gasket??? any suggestions

sounds like the cooling fan might not be working..check to see if it is working or not...if not check the power to the fan to make sure it isnt a fuse or bad fan motor

Coolant temperature sensor by thermostat housing also comes into play with rad fan operation.

1999 dodge caravan overheating while stationary no running fan

Check under hood on drivers side for relay/fuse box. They are labeled on underside of cover. If that turns up o.k. then I'd look at coolant temperature sensor.

Relays are located in either the Power distribution box (by the battery) or the junction box under the dash. If that is not your solution I would try the Body Control Box which is under the fuse box under the dash. I just went through a similar problem, check out 1999 dodge caravan with headlights out and park lights on all the time. I replaced this body control box($350 at the dealer) and it took care of my problem. everything works now. Buy it from a wrecking yard it's a lot cheaper. however you will probably have to pull it out yourself.
