    Does anybody know if there is module/relay or electronic gadget that if it failed would cause ;

    No dashboard lights
    No direction/hazard indicator warning lights on dash
    No front/rear fog light warning lights on dash ?

    P.s fogs & indicators all work perfect it`s just the dash display that doesn`t . If I disconnect the battery & then reconnect everything will work fine for a while , just like somethings been re-set which eliminates a loose connection .

    Could anybody tell me if a defective GM V ( general module 5 ) would cause the above issues ?

    Also can anybody tell me if the GM V is the same as a ZKE ?

    Hi , Just to let you all know i`m struggling here ....... but thanks for the help , lol !

    Progress so far is that i`ve pretty much eliminated the GM V module . Now what i`m after is some info on the check control system ( the little outline of your car on the dash which warns you of bulbs out or door open ) because i`ve noticed whenever this display returns to normal I tend to find the faults disappear , so I would love to know what modules control this ...........?

    Anyone there .................?????????????

    There is a control module built into the cluster. This could be your problem.

    Right , thats interesting , do you know whether this module is replaceable ? Or is the dash a one-piece unit ?
