Re: 500 dashboard

A short? Water getting in somewhere, bad earth? Any other starting or running problems? Failing any of those itís a replacement from eBay.

Re: 500 dashboard

Could well be an earth problem then. Try taking out the battery and tray and giving the two earth connections on the top nearside chassis rail a clean.

Then thatís definately a faulty speedo. Very common. Pick one up on eBay, there are always loads. Just make sure the mileage on the one you buy is lower than your car. You could always hold out for a reasonable price on a colour lcd one instead. I always buy them when theyíre cheap, at the moment there all over £200. Much nicer though and easy to change.

I just wondered as several people "seem" to have reported the issue after replacing bulbs making me think was it a earthing issue once the cable/holder/bulb has been disturbed, but guess not.

Thatís what I thought trouble is itís a low mileage every thing Iíve seen so far is double the mileage .
Will keep looking 🧐

Re: 500 dashboard

Another option might be to have the existing one repaired; there are plenty of ads on the 'net, though none that I have any personal experience of.

Re: 500 dashboard

I do have a colour lcd one with hardly any miles on it. Only 2,340. I was saving it for a worthy car but I would be willing to sell it but want £200 if youíre interested. I will donate £10 of that to the forum.Click image for larger version
