Problem solved for no gauges issue for Caravan

Hitting the dashboard was not the answer, I tried. LOL Thank you to damnnickname for you help. It worked! To those of you who have this problem in the future, its an easy fix, if that is the same problem I
had with my Caravan. You must remove the lower panel below the steering column, then on the right, just in front of your knee, should be a metal box with two wire groups, one with a blue plug in and the other clear/translucent green plug in. You must unplug those two ends and wait a few minutes and replug them in. It worked for me, its call a BCM aka Body Control Module.....Thanks again for eveyones help. Cherish65

Maxpower:
I have a question regarding my new Magnum. I have heard there is an "event recorder" in the vehicle, similar to a black box on an airplane. True? If so, is it a separate module, or it is built in to the powertrain controller?
Thanks, Dan

I cant say for sure but I have been hearing that they have been installed on new vehicles for like 5 yrs... Anyone have any confirmation on this?

I can't find a public list anywhere, but here's a typical writeup:
"Today an estimated 30 million cars contain these 'black boxes' - they're actually silver - known as event data recorders (EDRs). Most record simple data such as whether airbags deployed or if passengers wore seatbelts. But most cars from General Motors and Ford, as well as some Toyotas and Hondas, track even more information, including vehicle and engine speed, and whether the driver was accelerating or braking.

I know a lot of cars have them, including the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Magnum. But my questions are "Where is it?" and "Can I disable it?"

I know Volvo's have had them for at least two year's. I worked for them briefly, and in an accident in Montreal it cleared the company from a faulty vehicle lawsuit, as it should the driver was driving in excess of 140 km's an hour, and only applied the brakes two seconds before impact. the driver killed someone in another car, and the driver was blaming Volvo.
