after i drive it for about 2 miles and then make a RIGHT turn when i shut it off for about 2
hours i have to repeat this procedure to get the speedometer and odometer to work

1 Answer


These vans are notorious for bad motor mounts, could the engine be shifting around and affecting the wiring? I had new factory mounts installed in mine, and it's like a new van. I found them from a dealer online at half price.
