    Hi,

    i got in the car this morning and all my dials apart from the speedo are not working....rev counter, petrol gauge, temp and the mileage digi read out too. Also, the handbrake light stays on even when the handbrake is off and the red exclamation mark light next to it. Any ideas on what the problem might be?

    thanks, Chris

    Also, there is a small earth wire that connects to the handbrake which I believe triggers the light. Check to see that this is still attached. You will have to remove the handbrake gaiter and possibly the rear section of the centre console to see it

    This morning i tried the dial test and nothing happened.
    Also the earth wire still looks to be attached for the handbrake. is the best thing now to remove the clocks to check connections behind? If so is this a hard job? ta
