#120 of 168 Speedometer and Tachometer Stopped working
Dec 06, 2009 (7:31 pm)
I have a 2007 Dodge Caravan. My son left the ignition turned to on (not accessory) and left overnight. Next day battery was dead. The battery was recharged, but now the speedometer and tach needles have gone all the way around clockwise and are under the pins and do not work. I disconnected the battery and reconnected, same problem. Any ideas on what to check or how to get them reset/working? There were no problems before the "let me finish listening to my song incident...."

This is exactly the problem (among a few others) that brought me to this forum via a Google search.
After reading everything, I have decided to name my 2001 Caravan ... HAL.
HAL: "Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over. "

I had the exact same thing happen to our 01 DGC this past Sunday night. Everything was working fine when I turned off the van to pump gas. I went and checked the fluids under the hood, like I usually do, when pumping gas. When I went to turn on the head lights the dash back lights would not turn on. (I checked the dimmer switch, hopping I accidently turn it off, but that wasn't the case.) Just the mileage, radio, gear selector and airbag light was on. I even tried turning the engine off a few times with know success. After I got home, I checked the fuse box for any visibly blown fuses and didn't see any. Also, I tried to find out which fuse was specifically for the dash lights, but wasn't able to. Well, today when I turned on the head lights, the dash lights all came back on. Still not sure what caused the problem, but thank the Lord it's fixed.
#125 of 168 No tachometer on van

My 1994 caravan doesn't have a tach on the panel. Would a junk yard panel that does have a tach on it work?
Are there other interfaces needed? Can I just plug the new panel in?
Thanks for any help.

Dude, Did you ever fix the problem? I have exactly the same problem...
I have spent some time in all the stuff under the steering wheel and fuses & such. But I done know what looks correct/ so, even If I saw the problem I wouldnt know it.
Just currious if you ever got the issue resolved?

yes mine works fine for over 6 months now. it did go off once over a big bump but I think I didn't spend enough time cleaning each pin and socket.

Yes, I researched this and was sure it would work, Bought a used one at the junk yard and installed it.
I now have a TACHOMETER, VOLT METER, OIL PRESSURE gages in addition to the original gages.
Works perfect. I did reinstall my original odometer to keep the van milage correct.
