|I have this problem with my van, it will start when it's good and ready, after been stuck for 4 hrs. I hit the dash as recommended 'till my hand hurt, checked the connectors at the computer and the PDM. but nothing work. I guest I was reliving frustration, I was thinking on Dodge engineers at the moment. It was towed home|
Now it's all in parts and pieces, but I can't find corrosion in any of the contacts, or broken contacts in the instrument panel
Any other suggestions? It will be appreciated. (Should I try a bigger hummer?).
|worked grt did what #5 said w my speedometer reset. thanks|
|3 cheers for Keith!!!!!!!!!!!|
Thanks my wife did it.
|Thanks Keith, My 15 year old daughter fixed the problem !! |
|99caravan seedo reads 15mph whith key turn on|
|Keith is the MAN. Had the same problem with 2003 Grand Caravan. Got Sof 5.5 . Nothing happened. took finger off reset, got an error code then dash lit up. went through a reset process and all's well.|
|Kieth that worked great for our caravan... I thought it the spedo was toast... the reset worked great... thank you for saving me 200.00 bucks. |
|Thanks for the tip Keith, the speedometer is working again !|
|Thanks so much Keith. It worked for me also.|
|Thank-you keith, It took a few seconds and all is well|
|OK, so I had the same dashy-no-worky problem on my 98 Grand Caravan. No gauges, no odometer, no gear-selection display.|
Took it all apart, pins at wiring harness and odometer-board looked fine, but re-soldered them anyways.
Lights are all working fine now. showing mileage. showing what gear i'm in.
Gauges are coming on, but I don't think they're right. shows about a half tank more than I should have. temp is at about 1/4 even tho it hasn't been driven in several hours. took it for a short drive, speedometer was going up in about 15 mph increments, and not going back down.
Tried Keith#5's suggestion, didn't do anything. Held trip/odom button, counted to 60 & no code showed up. held reset button down, counted to 60, still no light show. held both buttons down, STILL nothing. Tried this with key in LOCK position and OFF (first click) position.
I've got to be doing something wrong... Bob152's 15 year old daughter can do it.. why can't I? :-( lol
|Thank you so much for the info. Worked perfect!!|
|Millions of thanks Keith, worked like a charm|
|I used Keiths solution and now my speedometer works again...what a prety light show!|
|"Re: Comment #5"|
OMG~ Keith thank you so much for your tip. We did as you instructed and it worked perfectly!!! AMAZING~I know that if we would've taken this problem to the shop, we would've been taken for a ride!!!
Followed #5 -Keith's recommendation. Worked great first time. Pressed Odometer button, held, got a message 5 of 5.2 released, board reset and speedometer needle back on top side of pin. 2003 Grand Caravan Sport. KUDOS to Keith!
Kudos to Keith (#5 from 1/15/09) on his information about stuck speedometers. This saved me alot of Money. It took about 3min and the light show was great!
|"2001 speedometer no working"|
You just keep ROCKING! Your $150 has gone a long way. Have you been reimbursed? If not, PLEASE allow me to contribute towards that end. I believe your consideration deserves, at the least, to be made whole. Thank You!!
|"Dodge Caravan Speedo / Tachometer not working"|
Just want to say a big Thanks to Keith #5 for sharing his experience with us. My Speedo and Tach were not working as well and I tried what Keith suggested and it worked! It's good to know that we have people out there who are willing to share this type of information without charge.
Keith, I think everyone on here should donate $1 to you...we could make up that $150 plus a few :P.
