The next thing I would try would be to remove the fuse marked IOD ( 10 amps, lower left of the Fuse/Relay Center as you are viewing it) for 30 seconds or so, then replace.
The IPM Fuse & Relay Center is located under the hood between the battery and the firewall near the Drivers side fender and the cover is easily removed by pressing in on a couple of clips.
What this does is reboot the Body Control Module which controls many things including the lights in question. You won't harm anything else by doing this and it could solve your problem. You will have to reset your clock afterward.

Thank you! I tried the 10 amp earlier, and it didnt work, but after reading your post I tried it again, and yahoo it worked. I can't wait to tell my hubby who said it was something serious.
I love you guys (and gals) here!
BTW I had no idea there were 5 individual bulbs in the instrument cluster, I always thought it was just one big one..

#77 of 168 shifter indicator malfunction
Feb 26, 2009 (4:33 pm)
I replaced the instrument cluster with a analog shift indicator for my 1999 caravan, for a instrument cluster of a 1999 - 2000 caravan that has a electronic shift indicator. I want to know how to make it work. Do I need an addition part for this or do I need to upgrade the computer to my vehicle.

#79 of 168 99 Plymouth Voyager instrument panel problem
Mar 08, 2009 (7:44 am)
For the past few weeks my temp, speed, and fuel gauges have been going dead intermitently. The instrument panel backlight is fine, as are the indicator lights above the panel. For a while, I could hit the dash above the gas gauge and the panel would come back on and the door chime would sound. Yesterday the panel went out and will not come back on. To make matters worse, apparently hitting the dash was not the right thing to do, as the fuel gauge needle is now broken off. How much trouble is it to remove the gauge cluster and replace it, and will this likely fix the issues I was having?

You may not have to replace it. If you're mechanically inclined, it's not difficult. You take the entire instrument panel out, take a soldering iron to the back of it and just touch each solder joint. You can take it all apart also to put the needle back on the fuel gage.
I had the same issue awhile back and had read through here about the weak solder joints. Mine has been working ever since.

I did this yesterday on my 2003 Caravan to fix the dimmer issue with instrument panel lights. Seemed to work except after starting my van once - it now will not start. Does anything else need to be reset? I tried jumping it but nothing. The lights flash rapidly when I try to start it and it clicks like it might with low or dead battery but I was able to start it once. At the same time I try to start all gauges jump all over - my tach goes up high speedometer does the same but no start. I ONLY pulled the mentioend IOD fuse lower left in fuse box. Thanks for any help.

I have taken my BCM out of my 98 grand caravan, in which the speedometer still does not work, even after repacing it from a scrapyard. Otherwise, the van will start, but does have the ABS light on. I have PN P04801062AC for the BCM.
I have the cover off and see that the components are almost all surface mount. On th top I do not see the 330 ohm resistor you are talknig about. Is it on the back? I see one resistor (331) which sits on the back near the blue connnect near the pins of a component identified as Z5 on the front.

Hi, I have problems with my 2000 Dodge Van. All the gauges and the gear selector PRND3L light have packed up. The ABS and the Service engine lights of the information center are permanently on. In addition, the rear wiper stopped working. Checked fuses and okay.
A step by step remedy will be highly appreciated. Please, I need help urgently.
