  • Cluster died....

    Hi all,

    Whilst out having a Sunday drive this afternoon, my cluster died. Admittedly I was pushing the car a little and enjoying the country roads and it died completely unexpectedly.

    - First of all I am going to check fuses 10,12and 21. As per Bavrests website
    - Then check the SI batteries. These were converted to AA's by a previous owner, and I replaced these about 6 months ago with 9V AA items.

    Is these fail to solve the issue, what would everyone recommend next?

    Thanks

    If it has completely failed (rather than failing intermittently) if you cannot troubleshoot it yourself I would send it to a specialist shop like Palo Alto Speedometer http://www.paspeedo.com/. I am very confident they can isolate the problem and fix it for a reasonable price.

    Mine has an intermittent fault, and these can be an absolute nightmare to pinpoint.

      I had changed the fuses tonight and 10 had burnt out. Put a new one in, and it worked instantly thankfully. Lets hope it holds out.

      I'm based in the U.K and finding a good trust worthy source to work on anything electrical is a pain! There is plan of con men out there claiming to be Guru's and ripping owners off

        That is kind of unusual but not unheard of for just the one fuse to burn out for no apparent reason. If anything I would check your wiring connections and grounds.

          I currently have an issue with mine (and have for some time really).....

          I am also in the UK and can concur.....Auto Electricians are like rocking horse poop, especially up north.

          Not working;

          Speedo....not really bothered....I use the rev counter anyway
          Petrol Gauge....am quite bothered but red light still comes on so.......but I fill up every trip just in case
          Oil Temp (works some of the time) am really bothered....I have fitted an extra Oil Pressure and Oil Temp Gauge (currently residing in the Glove Box)

          I will get the issues sorted over winter.....

          The speedo will be a cluster issue I think...? All fuses are fine
          I think the petrol gauge will be the sender...?
          Same as the oil temp.....?


          Please let me know how you get on and if you manage to find someone decent and trustworthy.



          Cheers
