Instrument issue, no speedo
« on: 31 July 2019, 22:27:21 »

I havent used the car for a couple of weeks, and now, most of the time.  the tach and speedo are not working.
Speedo flickers, tach doesnt.
It randomly came alive earlier but dead again.

Fuel and temp gauges fine, as are all warning lights and dash lights.
Looking on here it seems i have to replace the cluster, and it has to be from a 3.2?
Could anyone add to this?

Many Thanks

Palm of hand flat on right side of rev counter, and firmly press. That's where the cluster attaches to the car.

If the cluster is knocked, replacement needs to come from another FL (to match colour and temp gauge) V6 (to match rev counter and speedo).

She wont come back to life, so i will get a another one.
I have the smaller Vdo screen, so do i need the whole identical instrument panel?
Or can i just remove the cluster and switch?
I suppose there isnt a way to clock it to match the mileage on mine?

Cluster only :y

You can correct the mileage, but have had mixed results :-\

Make a note of the old and new mileages along with the invoice for the new cluster and stick it in the service history if it matters greatly  ;)

Have a similar issue on mine,but in my case it's the rev counter needle that flickers where the speedo needle stays still.What is the going rate for a replacement cluster?

Cheers.

Actually thinking about it she will never be sold.... Quite possibly the best car ive had.
Had her for 8 years now.
So i guess the mileage doesnt matter that much.

Might do if you need to put an Insurance  claim in or someone aims against you.

Theyre use any excuse to wriggle out of a claim.
