    Unhappy Dead speedo and rev counter

    55 reg Signum 2.2 Elite auto (facelift version)

    Wifey reports starting off from cold, and looked down to see the rev counter, speedo, and fuel gauge all playing dead. (maybe temp guage, but engine was cold so can't tell) But the auto drive D: light was illuminated on the dash display. She stopped the car, turned off, then re-started engine - and it all worked again. Canbus problem - or something else ?

    From what Ive read on here, its not uncommon for the Dash to do this.

    Ive not yet experienced it, but I don't think that its a major problem. Just a Glitch that appears now and Again

    Could be a dead CIM, was a particular problem with early models, mine had to be replaced before I took delivery as it was dead on the test drive.

    Should be a waranty job on a 55 plate??

    Default Well - Dealer cannot find anything ...

    Surprise, surprise. The Signum went in for a new flap valve on the under dash air ducting - I was getting a `graunch'. Also asked them to look for any error codes re the Instruments, but they say minor errors codes get dropped off the end of the list after about 20 starts. So next time it happens it is straight to the Main Dealer pronto.

    There is a known issue that causes this on earlier Vecs, I believe it’s with poor connections on the ABS plug behind the battery, this should be covered under warranty.
