Rev counter woes
So since I got my car I had the common issue of the rear lightbulb warning light being on when the sidelights were off together with the o/s/r sidelight bulb always being slightly on - but when you turned the lights on they all worked as they should and the warning bulb went out.
Research pointed to the rev counter bulb warning circuit failing and replacement of rev counter was necessary
Replaced it today - needle is much smoother than the juddery original but straight away noticed that the bulb warning lamp does not come on at all - not even with just ignition on but no engine start
Now the o/s/r sidelight bulb does not work at all ( swapped the bulbs side to side and its not the bulb ) - and the n/s/f sidelight bulb is permanently on !
To be able to leave the car overnight without draining the battery I've had to disconnect the battery and lock the car manually
I take it this isnt a simple fuse issue and the "new" rev counter is in fact knackered ?
Anyone else had this issue ?
