Default Dash lights and climate controls out

A few days ago I got into my Ď05 Sebring (146K) and the dash gauges were all out. No speed, tach, fuel, temp, or odometer. Turn signals still work on the dash and so does the bright light indicator. It has the luminescent display and that works, as well. Just no gauges. Also, I think at the same the climate controls went, as well. The fan can be controlled, but the interior temperature and blend settings are not working

Hereís the weird thing. If I open the door, the odometer display turns on but nothing else works

iím thinking a ground wire somewhere under the dash. Anyone have any ideas where this might be before I go pulling everything apart?

First check the battery. A weak battery can do weird things to a car where so many things are controlled through the computer.

Sorry, itís been a little while since I have been able to look at the Chrysler. Life has been happening.

The battery is brand new. Like only a month old. Maybe the connections have worked loose. Iíll check it out this weekend

10 Amp fuse in the Power Control Center (under the hood). Second from the top in the second column from the left. In the manual it's labeled Ignition Switch. Which is funny because you would think that a blown ignition switch fuse would prevent the car from starting, but all this did was what I described above. I pulled the cover off the front tire to get to the battery and cleaned and tightened all the connections. I checked the fuses I thought might the culprits again (and they were good again). Then I just started pulling fuses and checking for blown ones when I stumbled upon the problem child
