    Default Dash on, dash off Daniel Son.

    driving to work this morning and Tomtom started getting low on juice so plugged it in to charger, my dash turned off, needles dropped to 0, lights went out, for about 2 seconds, then everything came back on again as normal.

    I'll check fuse 17 tonight, but then it must be working ok, but anyone seen this happen before? Did scare me momentarily until I realized car was still running.

    Huh?

    I read that the dash itself is a simple plug and play part costing around £70. Oh, ahem, bother, I hope its not failing then.

    Mine failed last year. New CIM and being programmed cost £485 from the dealers.

    Not a cheap part to replace im afraid.

    Yes but dash is controlled via CIM, chances for a dash failiur = 0% (or nealy) chance on a CIM failiur = 75%

    ah, but my rpm needle is 500rpm too low, so I was hoping it was a dash fault not a CIM fault, in which case I could just swap out the dash cluster and not the CIM.
