1998 plymouth voyager 3.3 automatic trans. Lights on dash insterment panel blinking always warning bell for gas gauge goes off continually when the gas tank is full.

probably a crack in the circuit board of the dash panel at the point where it connects to the wiring harness, can usually be repaired by a talented electrical auto tech, or a tv repairman since they have experience with printed circuit boards(which is what the dash panel is). An alternative is to get a replacement dash panel from a junk yard, be sure they check to see if it is cracked, as this is common.

Can the plastic heat or sound barrier under carpet pad set off a bad smell as it gets's all cracked in pieces

In a word, yes. But it usually is moisture that gets into the cracks and carpet pad and mold starts to grow. Sporicidin Enzymatic Mold Cleaner is the best I've found for mold cleaner.

Sometimes my guages in dash stop working still have dash lights but guages not

Mine turned out to be a cracked P/C board that is part of the dash. It can be repaired, but sometimes it's easier to get a used one at the junk yard. Sometimes, though, it could just be a loose or corroded terminal where the wiring plugs into it.

My 1996 dodge neon has a crack in the dash by the defrost vent. is there a simple fix?

This depends on the type of crack ... if it is from the sun drying out the material and shrinking it a quick-fix will probably suffer the same fate and look worse when it happens. If the crack is from abuse (like when I threw a bunch of 2x4 lumber on mine and caused a crack) then you might be able to find some repair goo for it -- ask at an auto-parts store and they might have it ("repair goo" is not the real name of the material, but I don't know the real name off hand). Make sure you let the person who is helping you know whether your dash is real leather or synthetic material as the type of repair fluid used will vary with color and type of material to be repaired.
If you have a real-leather dash you might even be able to go to a leather-goods store and find a repair fluid there -- it would be basically the same as fixing a tear in a leather jacket. I know that the repair fluid exists, but I do not know the name ... just that I have seen it advertised on late-night television.
If you can't find a repair fluid that will work with the material that your dash is made from, or if your crack is caused by sun-aging of the material, you might have to replace the piece of the dash panel that is cracked to get rid of the damage. Just bare in mind that if your dash is sun-faded it will be very difficult to match the exact color with a replacement .. and you might be more annoyed with the color difference than you were with the crack.

1987 lebaron digital dash all lights are off

This was a fairly common problem with the early digital dashes and I believe the problem was with a circuit board inside the dash itself. A poor connection or crack in the circuit board would cause a loss of all the digital readouts and often the problem would come and go at random. There are some companies that repair these and other digital readout dashes so I would do an online search and contact a repair facility that specializes in this. I've never found anything that can be done to the outside of the dash [connections, etc] that would help the problem. Good luck, hope this helps!

How do i get to the right speaker under the dash board

to get the speakers you start by removing the a pillar moldings (molding around window frame). it just pulls off, there are two clips holding each side on. then you will have to pry up on the black plastic dash . it is also just clipped on so if you pry upward it will release. after replacing the speakers then just line up the clips and press down to lock them into place.

I have a 92 seville and the digital part of the dash doesnt work and all fuses are good.What could be the problem?

The most common problem for this is dry solder joints on the board. You will have to remove the board and examine for cracked/dry solder joints.
They look like this:
Resolder them and you should be away. They are most common on cars that live on rough or gravel roads, the vibrations create them. In some cases i've heard of people rubber mounting the boards to reduce the vibration.
