Hi there,

Was everything working normally before you went to the dealer for the recall?

If so, I would say they have either fitted the incorrect clockspring, or left a connector disconnected.

Perhaps, you need to go back there now.

Everything was working fine until Monday afternoon. Display came back up this am with all functions then went out again, so not a fuse. Dealer does not think it is related to recall but will check it out Thursday

That's coincidental, and it could well be, but you have to wonder.

Let's see what they say.

I'll bet you get some sob story from them.

No loose connections. Fault codes in the unit. Reconditioned/ exchange units available on line same as what dealer sells. Meanwhile it works intermittently from 10 minutes to an hour at a time. Probably have to replace
Expert:  Gary replied 2 months ago.

Yes, unfortunately I would say an internal failure.

Maybe the cooling fan, or other power supply issue.

Hope you can get it sorted.

Kind regards

Gary
