Default 2001 town & country dash board peoblems

I have a 2001 town and country that is acting really strange. The instrument cluster dies and none of the gauges work intermittently and none of the turn signals nor 4 ways work at all. Last night the interior lights came on and stay on all the time unless you shut them off with the dimmer switch. Has anyone seen anything like this that might be able to help me with my problem? Thanks.

Sounds like a PCI data bus problem. Find the IOD/memory fuse in the IPM (fuse box) and remove it for 2-3 minutes. This will reset the Body Control Module (BCM) - the heart of the data bus.

I will try that tomorrow see if it works. It's late and extremely cold outside in this awesome upstate New York weather.

Many moons ago we lived in Plattsburgh for 8 years. In the middle of nowhere, brutal winters, very happy to see it in my rear view mirror.

Here's my diagnostics. I pulled the fuse and it fixed my lightly problems. The interior lights work normally and the luster lights up normally but the turn signals still don't work nor do any of the gauges on the cluster.

A little progress but not enough. Read this:
Fix for Instrument Panel, Turn signals, Faint Chime and Hazard Lights not working
