I will have the battery checked tomorrow , although the battery is only 16 months old , also the gauges are fine now , not sure what's going onYour battery is weak. Please, replace it.
If you allow this to continue, the needles will go all the way 'round and stick.
Then you will need to do the instrument panel calibration.
SEARCH for details.
nope didn't leave the interior lights on , the grounds on the B pillar ? never heard of that , where do i find those ?You didn't leave the OEM interior lights on while cleaning the inside did you? I've run down the van's voltage that way.
If the battery checks good (and you don't have corroded terminal/ground issues, check the grounds on the B pillar) then you would be OK I guess.
This list includes ground points and locations.the grounds on the B pillar ? never heard of that , where do i find those ?
Sadly, this is the a known issue with the 2005 era vans. This is the model year for electrical gremlins. You'll be chasing this down over and over.when I start my 05 limited , the gauges goes a bit crazy , they shoot way up and then come back down again .
Any ideas on how to fix this ? thanks !!
I did just that with my 2005. Yes, it nullified about 70% of the electrical gremlin issues for that model year.^^^ Those are sold as a performance upgrade to the Ricer crowd. 😇
More seriously, proper grounding DOES help the ECU interpret signals from the sensors.
