Ok did all of these items quit working at the same time?

The only thing that i can find that these items have in common is the rear fuse panel in the back of the car. All of them are on seperate circuits.

Ok so what should I do
Dodge Mechanic: Eric, ASE,

So without pulling the radio, lighter and cluster and finding something unplugged I would say that a visit to a good electrical diagnostic shop is in order. I checked a few data bases for any similar symptoms and nothing popped.

It could be something in the dash that all those items share but i dont see anything in the wiring diagrams.

Ok
Dodge Mechanic: Eric, ASE,

Does the rest of the cluster work except for the speedo?

All the items are fused separately from each other.

Hopefully this was helpful. Cars and electrical problems are very common and sometimes difficult to fix. Good luck.
