We replace an old battery connection yesterday after reconnecting the battery the speedometer and gauges quit working also lights on odometer and shift indicator go on and off. Lights still work on speedometer and tachometer. ABS light came on also. We checked the fuses under the dash and all are working?

Are you sure the batter terminal you replaced is tight, clean and not causing a weak connection? Also, have you checked the ground wire that goes from the battery to the engine block to make sure it is clean and tight?

I have got almost the same problem and cant figure this one out also. Before I replaced the battery everything was working good on the van. Replaced the battery and now the lights on the heater controls flash on and off and it blows hot air all the time. Everything else works though. Any ideas? All fuses are good.

It looks like there might be a relearn procedure to do and I am finding that out right now the dealer is faxing me the relearn procedure

Thanks, I would be real interested in knowing about any relearn procedure. I'm going to disconnect battery and reconnect to see if that works. Everything came on yesterday for about three minutes!

Disconnecting the battery shouldn't require a relearn, but let me know what you find. This is an interesting one.

We disconnected the battery cleaned both posts with a wire brush and re-connected it and there was no change. A couple of people have mentioned hitting the top of the dash with your fist. It used to work on our old TV but not the Plymouth.

That is a good one. Thanks for making me laugh. I'm stuck in the house with phenomia and to say the least, needed a good laugh.
