Does your ABS work?
Is it cable driven (to the gearbox) or electronic driven?

advise checking instrument cluster,suspect rev counter driven from alternator ,speedo be driven via cable or speed sensors on gearbox ,nb if cable driven speedo ,remove cable from gearbox end ,get some one to sit in car, spin end of cable,get person in car to observe if speedo moves or flickers to confirm speedo head and cable intact,if not cable or cluster concern,if speedo flickers,it may be speedo driven in gearbox

hi guys just got back from a diagnostics course at jim barrow motor factors

lol

you think cars are bad now with the management systems

Just wait to see whats in line for all cars after 2010

all cars will have to have Tyre pressure monitoring systems also all will have electronic handbrakes to this is all part of the new car laws coming into place on new cars

wooooowww

the world going to electronically MAD

good look for the future

ROBBO wink

1 more thing when you change a battery on a new car you will have to tell the E.C.U what battery it is and amps it is or the car will not start

NOTE what a pain in the ass

The speedo is driven from the rear diff electronically via sensors on these.But it will probably be a faulty cluster if the rev counter is not working as well...
