2000 Caravan - Instrument Cluster Problem

HELP!
I recently had a complete primary instrument cluster failure. The speedometer, fuel, temperature, digital odometer and digital shift indicator all stopped working....it does come back
sporadically...usually lasting for a several seconds (enough to glance at the fuel guage!) then goes out again.
Secondary instruments all work including the warning panel above the primary cluster. 'Check Engine Light' is also illuminated....vehicle running fine.....might this indicate the cluster problem??
Fuses look good. I even removed (for about twenty minutes or so) the 'IOD' fuse from the fuse box under the hood....hoping this might clear any computer/communication glitches...unsuccessful.
Any help/experiences appreciated. Thanks! SW

Didnt you post this in the Chrysler News Group? You may have to get the BCM reflashed with the latest update, have the dealer check to see if there is a fault code stored in the BCM for a Panel dimmer cuircuit failue. There could be a number of reasons that could cause this problem...have the dealer check it out Glenn Beasley Chrysler Tech
