1998 Chrysler Town & Country Instrument Cluster Test Sequence
Don't pay over $100 for a mechanic to tell you what check engine means.
Press and hold the trip and reset button, turn key until you hear the
beeping (run position), continue to hold the buttons for 5 seconds and
"code" will appear on the odometer. Let go and watch the light show. Note
any diagnostic codes. Once it's done, remove the key.
Some autoparts stores (like mine - AdvancedAuto) allow u to borrow their
car diagnostic computer (ODB2 OBDII) that can read codes and reset them
free. Also a shout-out to http://forum.chryslerminivan.net/ that site has
lots of useful info on T&C's and other chrysler minivans.

The Dodge Neon Project, part 1, the custom dash

This Neon was done a few years ago by the customer and it's time for a face
lift! I'm not a big fan of painted fiberglass interiors.... very dated. The
doors and dash will be fiberglass and wrapped with a little painted
accents. First the dash.
Dodge Caravan (01-03) Instrument Panel light replacement (How To)
A common issue with the Dodge Caravan (and Chrysler Town & Country?) is the
instrument panel lights going out. This makes it almost impossible to see
your fuel gauge or speedometer during night driving.
In this video I show how I was able to replace those lights with
replacement parts for less than $20. The process takes around a half hour.
I am not a mechanic or a professional, I'm just looking to assist others
who have this issue.
I say "Uh" a lot and I'm sorry for that.... I actually deleted out about
30% of them!
My replacement LEDs were purchased from www.superbrightleds.com
INSTRUMENT CLUSTER ODOMETER REPAIR ON A 2000 FORD F150
A common problem on Ford F series and Expeditions of this year through
2004. This problem and repair has been well documented else where, so I
take no credit for it, Just made this video to show the location of the
problem and the repair.
Speedometer reset procedure
Our first video did not include enough detail. So, we've made a new video
that should tell you everything you need to know to perform the reset
procedure. Not many cars before 2000 will have a reset, but many of the
newer one's do. Unfortunately not many of the service manuals will tell
you if there is a reset procedure. Most chryslers after 2000 do have one.
