    turned on the ignition engine fires up and runs but no digital display for milometer,speedo rev and fuel gauge needles not working, and temp needle shoots straight to red..Turned off car for 15 minutes fired up again and everything worked..Could it be to do with power to the circuit board behind the dash.Also some times i have to reset radio code as that happens when there has been a brake in power like if you removed the battery .But the dash display thing really bothers me..Any idear as if it happens again i will then take it to a garage..

    Getting hot under the collar mate, this hot weather has me doing crazy things like repairing my VW turd for some reason.

    I won't bothere until it does it a few more times.

    i would suggest part of the problem is your battery. have it tested or at leist give it a good overnight charge. the guage unit is its own ECU so to speak and needs a minimum voltage to work propperly, when cranking the voltage drops. if your battery is on the blink you can get these little gremlins.

    Today i started the car and all the gauges in the instrument cluster stopped working. They all went to zero, save for the temperature gauge which went to the max mark. The fuel light also came on, when I still had ~half a tank of fuel..And there was no digital display on the trip meter...The engine run ok, Is this the circuit board behind the dash clocks a loose wire or something..
