    Default Crazy Dash

    Anyone have this problem before, and how was it rectified?


    Will try and post a video clip of the problem.

    Sorry, cannot load the video, but what happen, only intermittently, when head lights are on, and the turn signal is on to the left, and once the steering wheel is turn to the left, everything on the dash die, goes blank, and then every single light start flashing, and everything return to normal. During this there is no engine, power cuts or anything.

    Hi, RiaanB1025.

    Never happened to me. On the other hand, I’ve read on several forums about people with “light” ( haha) electric issues that disappeared when they changed the original battery. My check engine light turned on from time to time without engine problems. One day, the battery showed up dead when I tried to use the Tunland. The problem ended after changing the original battery (warranty). Try another battery to see if it fixes the problem.

    Just and "update", my cluster was replaced on the 31st December, and the problem is still around.
    I think it is temperature related, as it only happen when the ambient and vehicle temperature are hot, in the afternoons, or after a long drive.
    Also now it happens while driving, normal general driving, even with the lights off, straight line turns everywhere.
    It is sometime so bad that I only get 350km's on a tank of fuel, not because of bad fuel consumption, but the oddo meter also stop when the dash "start", positive, mileage stay low...lol
