Speedo & Rev Counter Issues
« on: 16 December 2021, 21:05:20 »

2nd time I have had this problem. :-X

1st time I think all instrumentation failed. but returned to full working order.

Today was a tad different

Just rev counter & speedo stoped working, temp & fuel were ok, but for some strange reason the radio started to retune itself (not sure if the radio is related to this problem)  Tried restarting the car a couple of times but problem still there.  Turned ignition of for 20 mins or so and all working correctly.

Any thoughts as to why this happens.

Seems a common problem
Is the battery good ? fully charged ?
if it's a facelift OBD2 Omega a temporary "fix" to cover you legally is a OBD2 HUD clicky 24.32 inc tracked delivery

I just ordered another for the wife ,displays voltage, temp and MPH and has "over-speed warning"  :-X
