Need some help to figure out why all the gauges start showing crazy readings. Usually happens after I shut the van off and restart it. If I disconnect the battery all the gauges reset themselves and I can go a few days then it happens again. Any help will be appreciated

Your instrument panel is toast. This is not an uncommon failure. Find a replacement on eBay, or find somebody online who refurbishes instrument clusters.

Chub's Auto Repair
605 S Cheyenne St Taylorville, IL 62568-2600
(217) 824-3954

Iíve used this shop for cluster repair a few times. Very reasonably priced. You could call and talk to Derek and see if he hasany advice on whatís going on with the cluster. Then otherwise send it to him to fix if he thinks it is related to the cluster. Probably should make sure all your grounds are good on the engine harness before calling.

This is located on the side of the timing cover, towards the back of the coil pack.
