    Default intermitent dash failure

    i have a 1.8ls on a 52 plate,my problem is quite a strange one.every so often as im driving along all the lights within my speedo cluster come on then the whole thing shuts down,speedo etc too,now the really strange part,if you slow down to a crawl with the clutch pressed and open and close the drivers door nine times out of 10 they come back on again!!! otherwise they please themselves when they come on again,whether the ignitions been turned off or not,hopefully i can get this fixed without a vauxhall garage and a nasty bill being involved,cheers.

    Hi mate, its more than likely 1 of 2 things. The ABS plug, free to clean, or the CIM module, £350+ dealer fix. With mine, I just sprayed the ABS plug contacts with WD40 and all has been fine for the last couple of years.

    Try cleaning the contacts of the instrument cluster, plug is on the back right.
