I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager. Periodically, I will start my car and it will immediately die. It will do this 6 or 7 times and then it will not start after that. The next day it will start just fine. Also, while I am driving my entire dashboard will go blank. I can't see my mileage or what gear I am in and all my gages drop to 0. My car still drives fine. My windshield wipers do not work properly either. I have replaced the entire fuel pump system and the water pump and belt. My mechanic is at a loss and after $1,000 and so am I. The driver door power lock also doesn't work all the time.

RE: need help diagnosing problem
Two common problems here so let's do one at a time.

The gauges and door locks and wipers share one thing in common and that's the BCM (body control module) but that's something you need to see a dealer about since each vehicle needs to have certain info programed in for it's needs and the part itself is specific to each model.

On the engine quitting, I'd lean toward a bad ignition switch, which is fairly cheap. Matter of fact I'd start with the switch and see if anything else clears up. OTOH, the door lock is not connected to the ign switch so it may be a problem all on it's own or possibly tied to a BCM problem. Hard to say from here.
