Mick I think you are right mate. When I have the ---- on the dash, if a bang on top of the cluster the dashes goes and comes back with the millege, I am then able to start the car. Is this repair one for the main dealer or are there people out there that can do this slightly cheaper?

Is it a matter of changing the instrument cluster or just re-wiring it?

The car is getting worse... My friend has a cheap machine that plugs into the car he brought off ebay. I plugged it in and it came up with the error code 'UOOO1 - high speed can communication bus


Now when I try and start the car it firstly starts ok and then the second time it turns over but doesn't start. I have to leave it for about a hour before it starts again. The day before this I had the crank sensor changed as the mechanic throught this was the issue but it seems like I have another one? or one still related to the old issue?


Any ideas on the fault code and what could be causing my issue?

Did yours have all the dash lights on and lose power when trying to accelerate?

A further update...


I was driving this morning and it was driving normally, then all the lights came on the dash and there was no power behind the accelerator at all! I rolled to the side of the road, turned the engine off and back on and had a little bit of power behind the accelerator but nothing to normal. Turned the engine off and back on and it had the usual power again.


I've been doing research online for people who've had similar issues to me and I have come up with a list that could be causing the issue...

  • Battery
  • Alternator
  • Faulty Relay
  • eGR Valve
  • Vacuum Advance Unit

Would any of the above cause this kind of issue I'm experiencing? It's starting to get quite serious and I'm scared it could cause an accident.

Ok so here's an update guys...
I've managed to get the connection tight by putting a washer under the bolt and righting back up. So far it seems to be ok, however I have ran into another issue or possibly the same one still.

I was driving along and all of a sudden the car seemed to have went into limp mode and the dash lit up like a Christmas tree, the rev and speedo stopped working as well, see attached. After about 10 minutes of driving some of the lights went off but a couple stayed on (attached).
After turning the engine off and then on again all the lights went off and the car drove normally.

Someone please help. It's been put on a computer and it hasn't come back with anything. Clutch has been changed as well as cool pack about a month ago.
