147 JTD (8v) no dash response and cut out when engaging reverse

Hi all

I thought I'd share a problem which drove me mad last year...


Upon turning on the ignition and stating the engine, sometimes there would be no response from the dashboard whatsoever....

At the same time, if you engaged reverse gear the engine would cut out...


First the garage diagnosed a faulty battery cable which apparently was a common fault and when the reverse gear is engaged, the rotation of the engine would break contact..not convinced but 100 later, problem still exists and missus still nagging.....

The solution was a new ignition switch.......

Cheers, Uncle albert
