Warning lights stay on


It sounds like the ignition switch is signaling to the dash (in error) upon startup. It may be the switch itself.

Speedo and tack lights dont work on 1998 v6 3.3 dodge caravan replace all fuses and lights instrument cluster looks ok ?


This is most likely in the cluster. It may have replacable bulbs in the back of it. If it does not, than it is a sealed system and the cluster needs to be replaced. Good news is you can put a used cluster in this van and you will not lose your miles.

The oddometer works but the speedometer doesn't in my 1992 Dodge Ram pickup. The gear that sits inside the transmission is not stripped and engages fine. Can the problem be somewhere other than the...


Could be a bad cluster. If one is cable driven, and the other electric. You could have a bad speed sensor in the transmission which will make the speedo not work.

Chrysler 99' town&country idiot lights guages go on&off


This is a very common problem on 1998 dodge caravan, voyager, t and County. You have a cracked circuit board in your instrument cluster. It is a dealer item. You can remove your cluster and install the circuit board yourself to save money but after the install you will have to take the vehicle back to the dealer to have it calibrated before the tach and the speedometer will work.

Instrument panel gauges all stopped working while driving.


These vans are common for having cracked circuit boards in the Instrument cluster. You need to replace the circuit board. Try smacking the end of the dash and see if the gauges start working again.

2005 Dodge caravan dashboard indicator lights and dials went haywire


2005 Caravan I had the same problem with my van gauges bounceing, headlights not comeing on when the switch was turned on.I took a day and downloaded a wireing diagram from dodge and studyed it.GROUND PROBLEM dodge have several ground conections to the body then there is one MAIN BODY GROUND.This is most likely your problem it is easy for any back yard mechanic to fix.This main body ground is located under your battery box.You will have to remove the battery and then the battery box becarful of the battery sensor that is mounted in the bottom of the box.Also there is a hose that you will have to disconnect but dont try to remove it from the box remove it from above the box.After you get the battery and box out you will see a threaded stud with a black wire conected to it this will be rusted because of no antioxide grease applyed.You will have to remove the nut and wire connector clean both and the stud with wire brush or sandpaper.Put antioxide grease or if nothing else some vaseline to keep it from coroading again.put back together and see if this dosent fix your problem.It has been six weeks for me now.good luck.dont forget that neg battery terminal is the first one to disconect and the last to reconect.

The circuit board for the instrument cluster is bad.It can be replaced independently of the cluster and you can get one from the dealer for around 400 dollars or you can take chance and get a whole cluster from a salvage yard for around 20 dollars.
