All dashboard lights blink off and on it bucks and jumps and sometimes dies. Then it will do fine for a while and then sometimes it just keeps doing it over and over until you shut it off and restart it.
Try checking all of the ground wire connections. There are a few located on the firewall. I had a crankshaft code coming on and it was the ground that was corroded. Engine performed the same way, dash lights on and off and ABS light coming on and off. The grounds corrected this.

The instrument cluster in this van is really a computer display and it has malfunctioned. This is a common complaint on this van and you must remove the cluster and have it rebuilt to cure the problems. Check the WEB for repair sources. They can also provide complete instructions on removal free of charge.
This car is hard to repair. Either the plug on the back of the instrument cluster is loose/dirty or a ground wire is loose. This probabally has nothing to do with it dieing out. Check your battery connections also for loose/ corroded connections.

Most likely a speed sensor is going bad (most cars and truck do not use mechanical speedometer cables anymore) most sensors are located near the differential in rwd cars or near the drive shaft on the transmission. Best bet is to get a Haynes manual for your car to help locate the speed sensor. Remove it and take it to the auto parts store so you can visually compare it to the replacement. Install the new speed sensor and it should restore your speedometer and odometer.
