    Default Instruments all dead.?

    Got in car last night found all clocks dead no speedo, fuel gauge, rev counter, this was in vauxhall only 10 days ago for a new steering coulmn and i wonder if a plug has come loose.

    Has these instruments ever failed before like this? If so may be a common fault.

    sounds like it could be a plug mate. but i think something to do with the alternator etc.. i have seen this posted up a few times before. i would take it back in and blame them

    Could be a loose plug or it could be the ABS plug, some cars have a similar fault to this and it's rectified by cleaning the contacts on the abs pump plug

    Bit too coincidental though

    Mines done that about 2 weeks ago and it turned out to be a loose fuse. I think it was fuse 17 on the passenger side of the dash board.

    its now becoming more prevalent as the colder inclemant weather kicks in and condensation starts to cause slight corrosion on contacts

    expect a few more "contact related" faults to become apparant as the weather declines
