Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Clutter lites

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Caravan yourself? What have you tried so far?

What size engine do you have?

May I start by getting your VIN (if you have it)?

3.3L engine and vin# ***** thx.

So both the lights and gauges stopped working on the cluster?

And your sure all of the fuses are good?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question

I just pulled a wiring diagram for your instrument cluster based on the VIN.

The power supply comes from the 20 amp fuse number 24 in the integrated power module. Start by checking this fuse first and if good, check to see if this fuse has voltage on it. This fuse should have battery voltage on it at all times. If not, the integrated power distribution module could be faulty.

If this fuse is good and does have voltage on it, then check the brown/red wire going into the cluster for power. This will rule out a wiring issue on the power supply wire from fuse 24 to the instrument cluster.

I have attached the wiring diagram for this circuit for you below.

Checked all fuses on ipm ? How do you tell which fuse is fuse 24 it is not labeled on the ipm. Also checked continuity from pin6 of c9 on ipm to pin 6on inst. Cluster no continuity. ? Where is the physical location of break out point (high line low line). This thing is a real maze.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Oh a light came on in my brain I need to check volts at pin 6of c9 ipm and then go from there also need to know which fuse is fuse 24 not labeled as such on ipm.

Hello and sorry for the delay! Fuse 24 is on the left hand side of the diagram between two relays.
