This is very strange, but this last Sunday driving back from Chicago, our Town and Country minivan's dash lights also failed - all of them. Can't see the speed, fuel status, etc.
We just took it to our usually trustworthy local garage and they said - two weeks at the dealership and $1200 will fix the problem. They thought it was the instrument cluster.
Coincidently, the minivan has the original battery in it - they recommended a replacement today which we agreed to, and the lights now work. Apparently, the battery just wasn't putting out enough juice and things started shutting down. Obviously, we'd rather have the dash lights go out rather than some other essential service.
