Hi,

After replacing the two light globes in the Ford AUII odometer, they worked brightly for about 2 weeks , approx.

Then I had no light, dash panel lights are ok.

I tested the two globes with multimeter, all seemed good. Put the globes back insitu , reconnected instrument panel, still no odometer light.

Replaced the entire base and globe, still no joy.

Would anyone know what the problem might be and how to rectify?

Thanks

I understand, it might be an idea to go to an Auto Elect and have them do a quick test? shouldn't cost the earth.

That's a good idea but too many Auto Elects around, problem is finding one that's a legit one instead of dodgey one.

Or get another AU2 dash panel from the wreckers (if still available, locally)
