    I am a relatively new owner of a Honda Civic. We/ wife & I also have an old Toyota Carina.
    My only problem is the occasional display fluctuation i.e, speed from 70mph to 000 & a split clock display.

    Welcome to the club @pauld, nice to have you join us. I've removed your registration as it isn't necessary :Smile:

    Have any of the @Staff come across this issue before with the speedo?

    Has the car had any work done on it recently, such as clutch replacement? Could just be the connector on speed sensor is loose.

    Looks like this is a common issue on the Civic were Speedo will intermittently display “888”. which looks like 000.This is caused by a fault in the speedo head itself, and you have replace the speedo unit to rectify this issue.

    Costing ain't my forte but regards fitment it's quite simple. If the radio display is breaking up and you can see all the symbols in the background this would require a new radio unit. This is also becoming quite common. But yes regarding the speedo, you need a new speedo display unit.
