Hello,

Does anybody recognise these symptoms?

1. speedometer stops working or flies around the dial.
2. power loss of 1000-2000 revs.
3. digital display shows dashes.

It's been suggested that it could be a fuel sensor or gearbox sensor. I'm pretty green with mechanical issues so I'd appreciate some thoughts

Cheers

Tom

the speedo can be the v ss sensor on the gearbox however the dashes and sweeping dials can also indicate bettery issues or incorrect battery must be silver calcium or a double calcium battery it can take a while to show as the battery has to boil up the acid first try the dash test and see if any fault codes show up key in ignition but dont start the catr hold down the miles reset button on the speedo keep it held in and start the car test will appear now let go of the button each press takes you through the menu look for dtc and write down the codes also check b- which is battery voltage

It can also be the CHT sensor, the cable in between spark plug leads. Just make sure it is separated from the ht leads as it cause the voltages to fluctuate.
