    Default Hello! New 2.2 sri owner

    Hello all,

    Just joined up and introducing myself, bought my 2002 2.2 sri three weeks ago from an independant car dealer in Scotland, after a couple of months searching. Not been the most straight forward first 3 weeks, with the dashboard instruments failing intermittenty every day on my communte to and from work, leaving me with no speedo, rev counter, temperature, petrol guage, indicators, lights, wipers, or radio. Quite frightening the first time it happened, at 70mph on a dual carriageway, thankfully the hazards still functioned, and everything functioned again after a restart.

    Reading through these forums helped me diagnose what the problem could be...a fault on the CIM module, or fault on the ABS connector to the ECU. After 3 weeks of arguing on the phone to the independant garage who sold the car to me, and some fiddling in the garage, I've had the car put into my local VX dealer for repair. Thankfully the garage have agreed to pay for the repair, as they sold the car to me knowing that there was fault on the dashboard, hoping it wouldn't re-occur...it did...the day after I bought it.

    Anyway, aside from that problem, I'm pleased with the rest of the car...when it has worked! Look forward to reading the rest of the forums and hearing from others.

    Cheers,
    Simon

    If it is the cim module it could cost about £300 or so. I belive there has been a bit of a problem with the ABS plug and by cleaning it has sorted it out.

    Welcome, sounds a right pain the first three weeks. But hopefully it'll all be sorted when you get it back.

    Thanks all for the welcome! Just had the VX dealer on the phone, not really any further forward, fault codes coming up for both the CIM and the ABS connector, they've advised that in an ideal world...both should be replaced...but getting the sim done first "might sort it out". Monday is the soonest it can be done...another weekend of dashboard problems!
