Dead Instrument Panel

(2005 Dodge Caravan)
in Jenkins, KY on June 22, 2010
My instrument panel has gone dead. The back lights work and I can see what is on the panel at night, but the gas guage, the speedometer, the odometer, the temperature guage, turn signals, and horn don't work. I've checked what fuses I can find to work, and all the relays seem to be working. I disconnected the battery and let the car sit for 2 hours and reconnected to see if it was a computer problem that would reset. Any idea as to what else it might be?

I have the same problem, sometimes it works sometimes it dont. My mechanic said it is the speedo cluster. You can possibly get one at the junk yard for $20 to $40. I would try to find a friend to put it in for you. A shop that I wont name wanted $250.00, they gave me some line about it not running right so they would have to electrically set the trany bla bla bla. They were full of it. Hope this helps you good luck.
