I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan that has the same problem. A friend of mine had the same van with the problem. He took his to the shop, they determined that there was a short in the wiring harness. It was rubbing up against something. It cost $200 to have it repaired. I'm guessing that is the problem with mine as well. If I hit a bump and the air is moist it will cause the gagues of the tachometer, odometer, and speedometer to drop. The ABS light comes on and all of the letters (R, N, D, etc..) for the gears are circled. It usually comes back on after a while but the longest amount of time was for 125 miles.

What is check gauges for 1999 Chevy Tahoe?

When one of your gauges shows something abnormal, your "check gauges" light will come one. Chances are you're low on motor oil. When you corner, the oil will slosh away from the pickup, causing your oil pressure gauge to read zero for a second. This in turn causes your check gauges light to come on, but by the time you look at your gauges, the oil has settled in the pan is your oil pressure is reading normal again. When you see the check gauges light and the gauges are reading fine, check your oil.
