Comprehensive dashboard failure

Dashboard problems:

* the LCD just said "Checking" and stayed there
* the speedometer wasn't working
* the tachometer was stuck on about 1400 revs
* various warning lights were on

After disconnecting the battery for 20 minutes and trying again, the dashboard is completely dead. The tachometer is still on about 1400.

The car seems to run perfectly well.

Any ideas?

Re: Comprehensive dashboard failure

Its one of the voltage regulators faulty. Sending reset signal constantly. I've fix it myself and you can if you are handy with soldering iron. I'll try to upload some photos later on
