Question about 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan
The dash lights on our 2002 dodge caravan aren't working. I've looked in the owners manual and can't find anywhere where it says dash lights. Is this a fuse or a lightbulb issue, and what do I do to fix it?
In the fuse panel under the hood beside the battery there is a fuse marked IOD in your nearest right hand corner facing the vehicle. Pull the fuse, wait 3 min. Reinstall fuse.
No kiddin'. That's it.

Itsatypo suggested worked!!!! THANK YOU:) I simply removed the IOD fuse, walked outside to see if the fuse was still good, reinserted and dash board lights worked! I can't believe I fixed the problem all by myself...my husband will be shocked!

The problem with the dash lights being totally out was solved by removing the negative battery cable being removed for 5 minutes and reinstalling it. After I did that, the dash lights are now working! Thank you for all the great feedback.

Dash lights still not working. Replaced the headlight switch, tried IOD fuse removal and disconnecting the battery (1998 Dodge Grand Caravan). There must be some reset....somewhere. Also, I took the dash cluster (speedometer and stuff) and checked all of the light bulbs. All good. Really baffled.

I did it too, thanks to all veterans here on FixYa!
My simptomps: No dash lights (speed, rpm, gas, gears, fuel) and no signal lights.
500$ dollars repair for 20cents in 10 minutes:
Disengage battery , open fuse box, pull 20A HZD (its written on the box cover) fuse out, saw that its dead (the two wires in fuse don't connect) and replace it!
Thank you all,Luka

My mom tried to jump-start a friend's dead car with her caravan, but her friend accidentally reversed the polarity of the jumper cables... the caravan had similar symptoms, all I had to do to fix it was disconnect the battery, wait a few minutes, and then reconnect it. The computer apparently froze when the jumper cables got improperly connected, but disconnecting the battery seemed to reset it- She had that problem in late 2003, and hasn't had an issue since

The fuse and fuse box for the Dash lights and a few other accessories will not be found anywhere because there is no secondary fuse panel/box for this year and model (2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport Manufacture date of 8/01). Chrysler uses Body control Modules and other types of modules in place of the Fuse Panel/Box. I have found out that the Body control module is located under the dash behind the Brake Pedal is where alot of your unlisted accessories will be. In my case the 12+Volt power wire (white with red stripe) was loose when i tapped into it when installing the remote starter . It is going to be the top plug where you will find the White with red stripe wire (make sure you disconnect the battery before you do anything). I found that the female connector (of the White with red stripe wire) that snaps into the plug was defective and wasnt making contact on the Body control module. To repair it I cut off the female connector and replaced it with a new one from my local auto parts store but make sure you bring in the female connector that is bad so you can match it up because its not our typical female connector. I crimped the female connector and snapped it back into the plug then I plugged it into the body control module. I checked my Dash lights, reverse lights and i finally had power to them. I will try to get pictures soon. A helpful tip I used was the READY REMOTE website that has a specific Year Make and Model of your wire diagram. I hope this will be helpful. http://www.readyremote.com/main.asp

To change the instrument panel light bulbs the instrument cluster, back panel, wire connector and printed circuit board have to be removed. Remove the bulb by rotating the bulb socket counterclockwise one-quarter turn and remove from the circuit board. Pull bulb straight out of holder. Installation is the reverse.

Ok for all you fellas whose 2002 dodge caravan instrument cluster guages including odometer and rpm, turnsignal, hazard light not working, after doing lenghty diagnostic, found no power to hazard fuse, remove battery and found blue connector very corroded and one wire was totally corroded and broken off, used another wire with terminal from another fuse box(made a pigtail) and soldered it and it fixed the problem
