Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid

3 Answers

Dashboard display: tach, speedometer, odometer, fuelgauge etc.

Dashboard displays totally off (not functioning): tach, speedometer, odometer, trip counter, fuelgauge, not functioning. Cruise-control functions, but no indicator 'CRUISE' on in the dashboard area, What does work? lit displays, turn signals/flashers. Problem was intermittent for about 2 years (cold/cool hours - functions ok; hot hours - all off), now permanent & no changes. Is there a connector/common wiring location as the culprit?

Same happened to mine. There's a single plug style connector on the back of the cluster panel, you need to pull the bottom panel covers (there's 2) and reach up in and snap the plug back in place. It's directly above the steering column so you can only stick your fingers far enough to reach it but it worked for me

I had the exact same problem. What I did was change the instrument cluster entirely, as well change my body control module. No problems ever since.

The wiring harness is loose, turn the car on and start wiggling the harness and have someone watch the dash while you do this

Display for gear display,odometer,trip odometer not lighted. Fuses check ok but replaced just to make sure. All other dashboard items ok. How do I get display back on 2000 Silverado?


The display is on all the time. You can only dim it with the headlight switch. If the display is blank, you will need a new Instrument Cluster. Some sites on ebay will repair yours cheaper than a new one, and keep your milage the same.

Changing dashboard light


Hi,

This solution will be of great help to you,even in the case of future or other dashboard problems;
Instrument cluster consists of electronic analog gauges, various warning lights, and optional tachometer. Vehicles equipped with tachometer have an electronic vacuum fluorescent transmission range indicator (PRND3L),odometer and trip odometer display. Vehicles without tachometer are equipped with a cable-operated transmission range indicator.
Instrument cluster is equipped with the following warning lights:
Battery voltage.
Cruise (speed control).
Door ajar.
Fasten seat belt.
Lift gate ajar.
Low fuel level.
Low windshield and washer level.
Traction Control.
The Body Control Module (BCM), which receives input from various sensors, sends display information to instrument cluster and operates gauges. Instrument cluster incorporates a self-test diagnostic feature to identify electronic problems. BCM, Powertrain Control Module (PCM), and Transmission Control Module (TCM) are continuously monitored by the diagnostic system.

SELF-DIAGNOSTICS
With ignition off, press and hold TRIP and RESET buttons while turning ignition switch to ON position. Continue to hold TRIP and RESET buttons until odometer window displays CODE (approximately 5 seconds). If problem exists, system will display diagnostic trouble codes. See DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART table. If no problem exists, Code 999 (end test) will be displayed.
DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART
CodeDescription
110.......Cluster Memory Fault
111.......Cluster Calibration Fault
905.......No CCD Bus Message From TCM
921.......Odometer Fault From BCM
940.......No CCD Bus Message From PCM

After diagnostic code display ends, instrument cluster will go into each of the following tests in order:
Dim test.
Calibration test.
Odometer segment test.
Electronic Transmission Range indicator segment test.
Dim Test
CHEC-0 will be displayed in odometer window. Instrument cluster will dim Vacuum Florescent (VF) display. If VF displays do not dim, a problem in instrument cluster exists. See BODY CONTROL COMPUTER TESTS in BODY CONTROL COMPUTER article.
Calibration Test
CHEC-1 will be displayed in odometer window. Each of instrument cluster gauges will move sequentially through each calibration point. See GAUGE CALIBRATIONS table. If gauge needle is not calibrated properly, a problem in instrument cluster exists.

Odometer Segment Test
CHEC-2 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of odometer will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.
Electronic Transmission Range Indicator Segment Test
CHEC-3 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of electronic transmission range indicator will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.

All dashboard/ center console lights out.


Test the dash first. Put key in hold down trip reset botton. Turn the key to on but don't start. Release the trip botton. Should turn on all dash lights & check for codes in the odometer. If getting codes reply back.

How to fix the of my car no tach no speedometer no signal light dodge caravan 2002


1. Check the resistance of the Output Shaft Speed (OSS) sensor. It should be 300-500 ohms.

2. If the resistance is out of range, replace the sensor. 1. With the key in the Lock position, push in and hold the trip odometer reset button until the word Sof and a number show up in the odometer display. This is the software version number of the cluster.

2. Release the button and the cluster will display codes in the odometer and run through the calibration points with the gauges.

3. Note any codes.

4. The cluster will exit the calibration when the word End is displayed on the odometer.

The dashboard


You may have a couple separate concerns. The fuel gauge if it is on empty may have a hole in the float. The speedometer odometer and trip meter is probably a broken gear in the speedo assembly. If the speedometer itself works it is getting a signal from the speed sensor.
