Question about 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager
Here is a fix...I had the same problem with the instrument cluster going dead intermittently. Pound your fist on the dash and wahlah, everything worked again. It would also register an engine code of 'invalid or incorrect information or lost data', something like that. What I found was a hairline crack in a solder connection on the cluster circuit board right at the harness plug connector. Mine happened to be the ground pin for the cluster. And what do I mean by 'hairline' crack? It takes a trained eye to find cracks in solder connections. Most people don't see them, because it is a circular microscopic crack surrounding the pin where it solders to the board. It it usually caused from heating and cooling, vibrations, and other element that attack and deteriorate solder. Very intermittent, and very hard to find. So instead, just simply resolder each of the connections to be sure another one won't fail in the near future.

Im a mechanic, and the above is right your cluster is going out. very common in grand caravans, voyagers, and so on. discontect the pos. battery termonal and reconect, this will sovle any glitches. but as far as the needing a new dash, its cheaper to by a used one from the junk yard than paying someone to solder it. good luck.

I have a '98 with the same problem. Check your tail lights when this happens. Mine don't work (but the brake lights do). I found out when a cop pulled me over because of no tail lights. It's a loose wire (bad ground) somewhere. Very difficult to find, because my lights go back on before I can start searching for the problem. Tail and dash lights on the same circuit, so that's where to look. Chrysler products are well known for their electrical problems. Get a manual w/ wiring diagram, check wires for dash lights, tail lights, look for bad connections, bad grounds, loose wires, chaffed wires. When lights are out is the best time, as you can see if moving different areas of wiring bring the lights back, then you are getting close. Good Luck countrycurt0
