These Neons have an issue with poor soldering on the instrumentclusterboard. Some people pull the board out and re-solder all the contacts themselves, but there are places on-line or on ebay where you can get one that's already been fixed. The replacement part is easy.
on many buicks and impalas there is a problem with the wire resistors falling off the circuit board! You will see four resistors upper right if any of these has fallen off they need to be replaced, Good news is you can replace them yourself ! go to your electronic supply store and buy 151 surface resistors and replace them ! These are 50 ohm and don't get hot and fall off. use a 15 watt soldering iorn. Don't want it to hot! Repace all 4 and wala it should lifgt back up! Douglas Noack texasinstrumentcluster.com
check your cluster instrument behind the dash. Faulty sending unit . Or lose wire on the fuel tank. you may have 2 filters. One of the filters should be underside of van running on the side of your gas tank.
if the odometer qorks but the speedo dont then you have a bad guage.look online for speedometer or instrument cluster repair places they will probably be cheaper but you will have to change it out yourself. the dealer is the best place to go for such things though.
to fix this you have to remove the instrument cluster, it's not hard (4 screws) and take it apart. On the hidden part of the board, there is about 20 contact points (where the cluster connects) all you have to do is reheat the solder around those pins and add solder accordingly and you'll have an instrument cluster that's good as new
