Speedo and Rev counter
« on: 02 August 2020, 00:16:54 »

My speedometer and rev counter started to fail intermittently in my 2003 2.6 saloon.
This topic has been reported before and their replacement was recommended. I managed temporarily by using a sat nav as that that gave me my speed and made driving legal.
During the lockdown the battery started losing its charge. I replaced it and now these instruments function without problem.
I think (and hope) it must have been a problem with the battery voltage dropping fractionally, sufficient to stop these instruments working but not enough to affect starting etc.
The car has done 154,000 miles using no oil and even the air conditioning works thanks to the previous owner, an engineer, who replaced all the air conditioning seals and maintained the car himself. It has heavy duty rear springs so I do not have the problem of it bottoming on the suspension when loaded and these have only a minor effect on the handling when unloaded.

I had the same issue on and off ,also a 2.6 53 plate saloon
I was using mine quite a bit ,no battery issues
I ended up replacing the binnacle , not had any issues since
just be mindful you need to match the part numbers if you do replace the binnacle
you need one from a 2.6 or 3.2  ;)

Update
Since the new battery was fitted the speedo and rev counter have continued to work normally.
Thanks for the advice from Dave the builder

Have just had this problem with speedo and rev counter also the engine cut out.  After about ten minutes managed to get it to fire up but still no primary instruments, did notice the rev counter did twitch a bit.  Have got the vehicle home now but cannot find any fault, any ideas?   Vehicle is a 2002, 2.2.
