Speedometer and Tachometer

I have a 2001 Dodge grand caravan, the speedometer and tach just quit working after I reset the tripometer, what could cause this.

    My wife's 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan would not start due to a corroded battery cable. After several tries she got it to start. She then noticed the speedometer and tachometer had spun all the way around and are stuck under the pins. We tried holding down the reset button on the trip odometer while turning the key to the on position until the instruments started to reset. The speedometer and tachometer never moved and remain stuck under the pins. How can I fix this?

Common problem on caravans bad solder joints on circuit board of instrument cluster.(known problem dodge refuses to acknowledge) remove cluster from dash use a cheap $12.00 Low Power soldering iron from radio shack and reheat solder joints on cluster. can be very hard to notice broken solder joints to the untrained eye. trust me on 90% of all weird electrical problems this model is known for this cures it. not bcm or ecm modules like some mechanics would have you believe.

It could have a short behind the dash where you pushed the tripometer. Check all your fuses and you will find one for your gauges thats bad replace if and see if it works, Hope so Take care

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan Speedometer and Tach not working


sit in the drivers seat close the door. with the key off hold the trip odometer button in then while holding the button in turn the key on. if done correctly this will put the MIC (mechanical instrument cluster) into a self test. if the speedometer does not move like the rest of the gauges during this test the MIC must be replaced. if the speedometer does move it is likely your problem will be fixed, however, if the speedometer does move but it does not start working properly then further diagnostic will be needed.

With the key in the off posistion press and hold the trip odometer reset button, the lights in the cluster will start to flash and the guages will do a self test. This should take care of your problem.
