If that has the digital dash there is a crack in the circuit board on back of dash board it will need to be replaced.

Gauges in my 1998 plymouth neon stopped working when i hit a bump

Sounds like an intermittent loss of power to the instrument cluster to me. Remove the instrument cluster and inspect the electrical connectors on the back of the cluster.

Speedometer and odometer start and stop working, check engine light gos on and off.

sounds like you have an electrical problem behind the dash cluster. That would be my starting point...

My daughter's horn on her 1996 Plymouth Breeze has started honking the horn every time she turns a corner or hits a bump. How can we disconnect the horn to stop this annoying and illegal action?

I would get a horn button (Like they used years ago) and mount it to the dash. You will have to find the ground wire that comes from the steering column though.

Speedometer and odometer both are not working. if i hit a bump my speedometer might work but not all the time

This sounds like your speed sensor may be bad. It's located usually toward the top of the transmission. Also make sure the cabling going to the sensor itself is tight and the connections are clean. The speed sensor shouldn't cost any more than around $20 and is available at just about every auto parts store.

I hope this helps! :)

I have a 1997 Plymouth Neon. The car runs great. The lights all come on but the gauges suddenly stopped working. It was fine yesterday..could it be a fuse?

Try a couple of good thumps with fist above dash (don't laugh) where cluster gauges are, and see if it comes back on, or may when you hit a bump. I had a 95 that did it all the time until I fixed it. If a bump or thump gets it back on, let me know, I'll give you details on fixing.

Electrical / Lights / Gages

Pull instrument/ cluster panel and re-melt cold solder joints where circuit board connects to dash connectors. Get them hot enough to turn them bright silver, usually 3-5 seconds each pin.
Good Luck!
