    I recently had a complete primary instrument cluster failure. The
    speedometer, fuel, temperature, digital odometer and digital shift
    indicator all stopped working....it does come back
    sporadically...usually lasting for a several seconds (enough to glance
    at the fuel guage!) then goes out again.

    Secondary instruments all work including the warning panel above the
    primary cluster. 'Check Engine Light' is also illuminated....vehicle
    running fine.....might this indicate the cluster problem??

    Fuses look good. I even removed (for about twenty minutes or so) the
    'IOD' fuse from the fuse box under the hood....hoping this might
    clear any computer/communication glitches...unsuccessful.

    Any help/experiences appreciated. Thanks! SW

    You may have to get the BCM reflashed with the latest update, have the
    dealer check to see if there is a fault code stored in the BCM for a Panel
    dimmer cuircuit failue. There could be a number of reasons that could cause
    this problem...have the dealer check it out

    Hi there,
    I had the very same problem on a Voyager 2005, I already found
    something that could be the solution, here is my last reply:

    An update...
    After some research in the net I’ve found the failure and repair
    procedure, here is the link
    the problem now will be to make our Mexican Chrysler dealer to perform
    such repair since they had no idea of the failure or notification from
    Daimler Chrysler Mexico... I will let you know how it goes "
