Dash board issues 2003 Win Journey DL

This is my first time using a forum so bear with me please. My dashboard instruments are not working. Everything else seems ok. Where should I start my troubleshooting adventure?

I would start at the fuse panel first. And good to hear from you.

The visible fuses have been checked, seem ok. Checked for wires as on one site ground wires were mentioned as possible problem. The gauges still not working. The air, gas, speedometer, rpm etc are all out. One would think that it would be a fuse. Anyone know if there maybe some fuses that are not immediately visible that should be checked?

Have you recently changed your batteries out ---- one time, a mechanic did some work on my coach, disconnecting the wires from the house batteries and when he reconnected, he did not reconnect one ground wire -- it had fell behind the batteries. That caused my gauges to not work. Found the loose wire, reconnected it and all was well -- just a thought.

Check loose pin socket connection at ECU which is under the bed. The ECC is the module facing the driver side. The one facing the passenger side is the Allison. Connectors work loose over time. Press it in. This module controls the dash instruments. Good luck c crkk

Had a similar problem with my Brave. The connector on the back of the instrument panel needed to be reseated. Unplugged it, firmly plugged it back in and everything eas ok.

Thanks RKL! I sent your suggestion to our mechanic as we had already had it towed in when we got your response. As it turns out that was exactly the problem. Saved us a lot of $. Thanks for your help, really appreciate it!
