Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan all the gauges on the dashboard stopped working and the Check Engine & ABS light came on. The A/C stopped blowing cold air. They stopped working a few months ago, Today the suddenly started working and then I turned off the engine and then they didn't work again. I'm going to take it to the shop this week any idea what's going on?
Another problem with the instrument panels in these vans is the connection on the back of the panel. The solder connection is not good. If you are able to do it , remove the panel and touch all of the connections with a soldering iron. this should solve your problem.

If you look under the dashboard on the driver's side, there is a fuse panel. Under this panel is the BCM(body control module). There may be a bad relay in the bcm. Worse case scenario is a bad BCM. I hope this information is helpful to you, Good luck.

you need to go over your entire wiring harness, under the hood and inside the dash. Start with the ground wire on the battery and work your way inside. It sounds like there is a loose ground wire somewhere

I expect the is should do it for you.
There has been issues with the solder joints on the PIN connection to the gauge cluster. The issue being that over time thru vibration and such one of these solder joints will fail (happened on or 1999) you can repair this though. You will have to remove all of the trim from around the driver's side dash board, this will include the trim towards the center of the dash. Once these pieces are remove you'll need to remove the gauge panel (I believe (4) allen head screws) carefully bring the panel and release the wire clip from it. Looking at the back of the panel, where the plug was, carefully with plenty of light look for one of the pins to have a failed solder joint. It will be very faint however the failed joint will be a fine dark line around the pin. To correct use a small soldering iron and reheat this solder until it wants to flow, let it cool and reassemble.
I hope this may have helped,
PS: I have helped several persons with this issue, please review my profile; good luck with it (also often times with this issue the ABS light stays on)
