  1. dashboard starting problems

    Please can somebody help me as im about to go mad!!!!!!!!! I have a 2003 1.8 tdci zetec with the usual dashboard problems, but after cleaning the connections and putting it all back together all was great when i turned the ignition on. But when i went to start it for a second everything seemed perfect until the engine cut out after a few seconds, and now whenever i try to start the car with the dashboard connected its a non runner. Disconnect the dash board cluster and the car runs great until you plug it back in and then 2 seconds or so and it stops the engine dead. i thought it was something todo with the immobiliser but i didnt think the cluster affected it? Please can somebody help me?????
