    could be the alternator, maybe the CIM or the abs plug maybe loose or dirty. Have a search for these and something will come up
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    My speedo did the same as what yours is doing and vauxhall dealer had my car in and couldnt find any faults with it and put it down to a loose connection or just the car having a power surge

    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elegance

    Engine : 2.0T

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 59.4K,

    an easy way to check the alternator is to connect a voltmeter to the battery with the car not running, it should read between 11.5-12Volts, then start the car and it should go up to 12.8-13.5Volts. if it doesnt change then the alternator is shot.
    is the car a diesel? if so, after the engine is started the battey is no longer needed for the running of the engine, it is used for the likes of the lights, and sensors.

    I wondered why everyone was staring at me when I went swimming recently. It was only when I caught a reflection in the mirror in the changing room that I realised the S had fallen off the name of my trunks.

    Sorry for going off topic.
