#2896 of 4276 1997 Grand Caravan no power to instrument panel and gauges
Jun 22, 2005 (7:39 pm)
I am the original owner of a 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan SE with 98k+ miles. While my wife was driving home today she noticed all the lights on the instrument panel were out and the gauges for speed, fuel level, etc were indicating zero. I read in an earlier message re: a 1992 Voyager, that the problem was traced to a bad computer. Indicators for "Check Engine Soon" and "ABS" were illuminated. Any advice that leads me to a quick and economical solution will be greatly appreciated.
The engine starts, the radio operates, the ignition key insert chime functions.

I need to replace the motor mounts on my van. I just bought two yesterday from Autozone, the type covered in rubber. A few questions:
1. Are there only two motor mounts (distinct from the transmission mount)?
2. Is this a repair I can do without a press (i.e., something to hold the engine up while I replace them)? It appears like they're accessible, but I don't want to be unscrewing my mounts and have the engine crush me to death.
3. Do I need any special tools?

I AM A REAL DODGE CARAVAN 2005 OWNER
Hahaha, just to make sure you don't think I'm a Honda owner, like twinsome.
I have a Dodge Caravan 2005, 5000 km (about 3100 miles) on it, had my first oil change (every 5000 km), no major problem, except a left front impact sensor for air bags which had to be replaced under warranty.
This van runs just great, but I can't stop myself from worrying about the transmission. I know that it is a lot better since 2001, but with all the posts about earlier models with transmission problems, I still worry a little bit about my 2005 transmission. Hopefully, I will only have to do my transmission oil change on schedule and everything will be fine.
