Turns out it was nothing more than an alternator gone bad.

Battery indicator light comes on above idle RPM, gauges start fluctuating.


The first thing you need to know is what the alternator output is when this starts happening.
It could be a faulty connection in the wiring harness, or a bad ground connection, or a failing alternator.

Does the ECM control the MPH gauge?


well yes but no,the speedometer signal comes from speed sensor in the transmission then goes through the ecm/pcm via the tcm (transmission control module, then on to your speedo,if the speed sensor goes bad usually the speedometer will work crazy if not at all also the instument clusters also go bad causing failure too find a new tech dude

I know with the generation II caravan the Body Control Module had some strange problems. On mine the horn will not work, and the wipers work sometimes and eerily on their own. It is a known problem and there is a TSB about it.

After that, it could be a bad ground.

Electrical system goes crazy!!


Dirty Power and Ground connections. Working from the Battery, disconnect and clean all joints, along the Harness to the Main power box, and do the same in there.
It is a Ball acher, but it will fix the problem.

All of my gauges except the tachometer and speedometer go to zero after driving for 10-15 minutes. windows wont roll down a/c quits working and radio loses power?


You got an open in one of the wires that feed your ipc, radio, power windows and a/c. Look around the engine bay for a worn out wire harness where there could be cut wires. Would probably be the harness that goes from the main fuse box trough the firewall, and by the way, make shure there's nothing (wires for electric brakes for exemple) that went trought the firewall's harness gromet. People have a bad habit of cutting the harness wile fishing wires trough there.

electrical problem. take the truck to the dealer and have the computer checked / reprogrammed. unfortunately, your average mechanic cannot reprogram the computer. have you noticed any other problem that would point in the direction of an electrical problem (lights, radio, lighter, etc.)?
