    Hi,

    Recently my dashboard has been playing up and im not sure what is causing this so any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Whilst driving and even during idle every so often the dash lights appear momentarily and the dials all show no reading (speedo, revs, petrol and temp) then after a few seconds it corrects itself and the lights once again appear and dials then work as they should. Now when i am driving this problem doesnt effect anything else on the car like power steering, loss of brakes or loss of power so im a bit stumped as to what the problem is.

    Any light on the matter would be great, thank you in advance

    Cheers

    have you done a dash test
    hold down the mileage reset button and turn the key to position 1 and the dash will test all of the lights and dials
