    Unhappy Guages not working

    I have 96 Dodge Caravan. The Speedometer, Gas guage, Tach, and Temp. Guages quit working. I checked the fuse and they are OK. Eveything ekse seems to be working even the cruise control. Any suggestions?

    Haven't done anything strange lately like jump starting the car, replacing the battery, take apart your instrument panel??

    I have had my IP apart before and your problem is either your IP is shot or you aren't getting voltage to the panel. There really isn't much you can do to repair the unit if it is broken that I am aware of, but you should be able to find out if you are getting power there with a multimeter.

    Do any of your dummy lights work??? What happens when you turn your key to ON? are all of the gagues dead??

    Good Luck
    Best Regards,

    This is probably either a BCM issue or a relay issue (as mentioned above). I had this issue on the 1992 once and I had luck with just resetting the BCM by unhooking the battery cable and killing power to it. Hopefully this will solve the problem, because if it doesn't, it could be an expensive fix.

    Open the hood and in the fuse and relay center just above the battery locate the IOD fuse usually near the top of the box and pull and reseat the fuse a couple of times . This will fix this a lot of times .
