hi everybody,
great site and finally found some useful info.
I own a lancia zeta-1997 which has the fiat engine 2.1 td.
so i hope anyone can help me.
heres the problem, my speedometer went NUTS. it goes up and down from 0-200 km/h. swings around the speed i am driving. when i am going 120 km/h it indicates a speed between 80 and 160. the needle keeps moving.
i searched this forum and found that the connection is at the gear box.
i climbed under my car, found a white connector with 3 wires coming out.
on the outside it was dirty and smutchie from some oil. on the inside it was clean.
anyone an idea ???

about my cruise control, it never worked, altough it is an original feature i cannot find anything about it in the manual. not even which fuse it is using.
is there something in the ulysse manual about it ?
if there is, i can buy that one.

must say i like the car very much after driving a vw-polo for 5 years....
so much space....

thanks in advance.

oke, no replys yet..
update on the speedometer, when i drove home last night after the night shift i guess there was one thing i havent tried yet.
so i gave a good smack on top of the dashboard...... gues what ?
no problem anymore with the speedometer.
when i have more time i'll take out the dashboard and check the connector
:) :p
