Don't know if i posted this in the right area!!!

Well anyhow, With my mums EF GLI When we turn the car on like normal the Rpm gauge goes up a little, But now it goes up for like 5 secs then drops down, the km disapper and the speedo wont work..

We have changed ECU changed nothing, Changed BCM's changed nothing, Put a another cluster in Changed nothing....

What else should we try???

Need this car on the road ASAP!!

Cheers

I recently had instrument cluster problems with customers falcon and it was due to bad earth connections at the battery. Dunno if it will help, but least it's easy to check.

When my engine was rebuilt, my speedo stop working, i found out it was some sensor to do with the transmission. might be worth looking at.
