Hey,

I have a 1995 EF Falcon Gli, and I enabled my instrument diagnostics modes with the mod found in the EF/EL section of technical documents,
where it shows me my fuel usage, engine revs, speed Km/h, coolant temp, battery voltage, gear position, litres in fuel tank and so on.
and it works ok but every now and then while I am driving, my speedo and tacko, along with the temp and fuel guages all drop dead for a second and then return back normal, and all the lights lights up on my dash, ie, temp, fuel and seat belt warning lights and what not, then after that, the diagnostic mode drops out and returns back to the odometer reading that is usaully there, does any one know whats causing this, and how can I fix it, because I use it alot and it annoys me when it shuts down, how can I fix it?...

Aaron......:)
