I am not sure of how many miles are on the vehicle but I have seen this on a few where the harness behind the gauges were loose.. if you try to fix it your self be very carefull as the cable in the center is the speedo cable also important is that some have a small very thin wire that is connected to the shift indicator ,..this has to be removed carefully with a phillip and possibly a torx bit type driver.
Do not just pull the bezal out like a beast when you are working on it or it will cost you. Keep in mind that some of the dash plastic that surrounds the bezel and a few swithches may have to be removed too.

Let's see if there is really a diagnostic expert out there for this... 1996 Plymouth Voyager 3.3L engine with 165,000 miles. I'm having intermittent starting problems. I can drive for weeks and no...

The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!

Loose contact of dashboard light

This is usually a loosing proposition,  if the switch is failing, it is unlikely that cleaning the contacts will work long if at all.  Unless you time is worth less than $10 an hour, better off to get a new switch if that's what is bad.  Check for problems with a dimmer switch (if present)  for dashboard lights.
