Nothing has been replaced , i think it could possibly the speed sensor but i cannot find where it is located and the best way to test if it is working.The speedometer was working then just stopped,the rev counter is very erratic
UK Auto Mechanic: Peter Zavarelli,

O.k.,is the engine running properly and transmission shifting properly with this issue here?

no problems with the engine or transmission
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Waiting for your response. as i said in my answer to your question engine runs fine transmission if all okay
UK Auto Mechanic: Peter Zavarelli,
 replied 2 years ago

I apologize for the delay.

This usually doesnt indicate a fault with the speed sensor.If the engine and transmission are operating properly then this usually indicates the speed sensor is o.k.If it was a speed sensor issue then the transmission would shift and engage incorrectly causing this here.I suspect this is a fault with gauge cluster itself needing removed and repaired or removed and replaced to resolve this issue here.I have seen this fail before requiring replacement for this fault here.This will need to be tested further to verify this is the cause but this does sound like the fault here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
