Electronic speedo trying to 'phone home'

Recommended Posts

Having fitted my new dash, I've just started to test everything.

My electronic VDO speedo is giving me some grief though.

Instead of displaying the tripmeter consistently, it works sometimes, but other times it just flashes weird random characters, like when ET phoned home using a hotwired Speak and Spell.

Is it knacked?

Cheers,

Glyn.

You do realize that the speedo is user programable for different gear ratios / tire sizes? If the speedo is new, it may be trying to tell you it needs to be programmed.

my has done it several times in the past, have all checked and never found an real possible fault (apart from some free-play in the flat-wire for the LCD section).

It works now without faults for several months (knock on wood...)

I got the instruction sheets from VDO and programmed it.

It may have got a knock, as it is from a write off.

I've managed to source another one now. fingers crossed!
