Question about 1998 Dodge Neon
I have a 1998 neon and sometimes I loose all power to all the gages and speedometer. Then I do nothing and start the car and everthing works good again. This has happened a couple of times now with no warning. You just be driving and you loose everything.
I have seen this problem several times and fixed it by doing the following at no cost. Rather than replacing the cluster, remove the cluster then remove the wiring connectors from the location they are mounted. Plug these connectors back into the cluster and reinstall the cluster. By installing the connectors off of the mounting location you are pinning them between the mounting location and the cluster thus not allowing them the free play that causes loss of connection/power.

I too have a 98 neon, and came across this same problem. You need a new cluster. I called a local junk yard for a cluster. The part cost me less than $100. It is a pretty easy fix. Pop off the top cover above your dash and instrument panel. It is just plastic clips, though sometimes you really have to pull. Then remove the few screws, holding the cluster implace. Install the new cluster and then screw it back together, snap back in the cover, and your done.
