Hi All , I have a 2004 1.3 Ka . I have noticed that the speedometer and fuel guage needles occasionally both drop to zero simultaneously for few seconds whilst driving. Ive tried to work out what causes it to happen but still not sure.On a couple of occasions it happened when picking up speed after a gear change following roundabout or traffic lights but its pretty random. Has anyone got any idea what could possibly be wrong ?

Hi GCG. I removed fuse No. 2 when trying to trace a fault causing my battery to drain. This fuse controls the radio, clock, interior light AND data for the dashboard. The car could drive but the speedo, fuel gauge, rev counter all showed zero, irrespective of speed. Perhaps you should check the fuse is making a good connection. Is the radio and/or interior light okay?
Hope this helps.
