Front heated seats will not turn on. checked for fuse but cant find any labeled for front heated seats? any ideas

First, please read this article: Where's The Fuse?

In order to obtain conclusive testing of the heated seat system, the Controller Area Network (CAN) data bus system must be checked.

The most reliable, efficient and accurate means to diagnose the heated seat system requires the use of a Scan Tool and the Service and Body Diagnostic Information.

Diagnostic logic is built in to the seat module and the instrument cluster (CNN) to help the person trying to locate the problem by the most efficient means possible. Anytime a problem is suspected, a Scan Tool should be obtained and used to retrieve any stored fault codes in the heated seat module and/or instrument cluster.

The dashboard odometer, gas, MPH, etc. on my 96 Neon is not working. I think its a fuse but cant find the cover with the fuse box diagram. Any idea which fuse it is?

Nope, not a fuse. The instrument cluster is either bad or the contact (plug in the back) is bad.This is a common problem for Chrysler's and Mitsubishis. Try wiggling the face of the speedometer and pushing it backwards (towards the front of the vehicle) with the key on and in the run position. But not started. You can also try hitting the dash above the steering wheel a few times But don't hurt yourself or break anything. I've recommended and done it many times. As silly as it sounds, it really does work. Then look into getting a new/used instrument cluster.
Please rate this answer after trying it. If not, I hope I helped.

GM has had a issue with the clusters in the 2003-2005 trucks. The cluster will be replaced for free for your truck if it has less then 70k miles. I would take it to your local dealer and tell them that the voltage gauge sticks at times. They should order one for you, takes 1-2 days and replace it for you at no charge. If this does not fix the problem, you will have a new cluster at no charge.Unless the battery light comes on, the alternator should be good. This is a copy of the GM bulletin.

#07187C: Special Coverage Adjustment - Instrument Panel Cluster Gauge Needle Function - (Mar 20, 2009)

This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 7 years or 70,000 miles (110,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.

Dealers are to replace the instrument panel cluster after the condition has been verified. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.

For verified failures between 70,001 miles (110,001 km) and 80,000 miles (130,000 km) on U.S. vehicles, dealers are to provide the customer with an instrument panel cluster (IPC) only. Any additional costs, including labor to replace the instrument panel cluster, will be the responsibility of the customer. Dealers are responsible for the return of the customer's IPC back to the Electronic Service Center.

For vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after September 28, 2007 for 2003-2004 model year vehicles, and March 23, 2009 for 2005 model year vehicles, are covered by this special coverage and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. Claims with repair orders prior to September 28, 2007 for 2003-2004 model year vehicles, or March 23, 2009 for 2005 model year vehicles, must be submitted to the Service Contract provider.

Involved are all 2003 and 2004 model year and certain U.S. 2005 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, and Tahoe; and GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles built within the following VIN breakpoints: 51100014-51247028 / 5E100002-5E223209 / 5F800001-5F882297 / 5Z100003-5Z224691

Good luck friend.

While driving 1997 intrepid, the instrument panel

I just experienced this problem. I called my mechanic and he knew what it was because it happened to his wife's Intrepid.

The solder connections on the back of the dash crack allowing it to work at times due to temperture variations. All he did was remove the cluster and re-solder it and replace it. It now works perfectly. He charged me $100. Cheaper than a new cluster!

I have a 1997 dodge neon and the speedometer does not work

Need to access the PCM with a scan tool and see if the vehicle speed sensor is still working. If it is, the problem is most likely in the instrument cluster and a junkyard part would be a good solution. If you have no VSS operation, that's your problem.

This sounds like a ignition module problem or maybe the crank sensor.

1996 dodge neon speedometer wont work

My fiance has an automatic 1996 Dodge Neon, and every once in a while her speedometer begins to fail intermittently. The problem is actually an easy fix. Pry up the dashboard cover (it is just held down with pressure fasteners) and look around the instrument cluster. There should be 4 screws holding it down. Remove these screws and pull out the cluster towards you. It should come out with little trouble. There will be two black plugs mounted to the dash, with two matching sockets on the back of the cluster. What I did was take some small needle nose pliers, twist the connecters in the cluster slightly, either clockwise or counter-clockwise. Also, slide the plugs out of the dash, plug them into the cluster, and fit the cluster back into place. What I think was happening was that the plugs weren't making decent contact with the cluster, and the vibrations were jiggling them loose. So far, it has fixed the problem..
