what could be wrong? on 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

I bought the car used and it has run great the last 7 years. But now, my electrical dash panel is going hay wire. Mostly the everything goes out, lights on dash, gas meter, speed control and gage etc. If I hit a bump or the door is slammed it sometimes comes back on but only for a few seconds. My air conditioner is also now doing the same thing. Sometimes it works, and mostly it just doesn't. The back ones do work, all the time. I just don't know where to start looking for the problem. Any suggestions so I know what kind of mechanic to take it to. Air conditioner, electrical etc? We've checked fuses, wires fans etc also and they seem to be intact except for one which my husband is going to check on again after he looks at the book. Thanks for any suggestions or ideas.

The Instrument Clusters do go out on these vans, so I would have that scanned as well as the Climate Control Module. here are some shops, make sure that they do Diagnosis of the Instrument panel and the Climate Control System http://repairpal.com/directory?address=93514&car_brand_names=Dodge
