Right i removed my clocks the other day to see why the telltales didnt work. discovered there led,s not bulbs. Anyway when refitted the unit my fuel gauge now sits at 3/4 of a tank regardless. So i removed them again today to make sure all the pins and plugs are ok, now not only the fuel gauge problem but my airbag light has come on:mad: . so what have i done?

Did you disconnect the battery first?

Ok sometimes you have to short the cables together which discharges any energy from the various circuits. Try disconnecting the battery again and keep your fingers crossed.

There is a lot of dials selling on ebay at the moment, It seems yours is faulty and needs replacing.

I'm breaking a 166 if you need these parts (in fact it was supposed to be scrapped last week but I didn't quite manage to organise it). The instruments have a black background and the car was a Sportronic. PM me if interested.

thanks for the offer zahid but i had allready organsied a replacement set of clocks but didnt know if they worked till today. Im pleased to report the new clocks work so at least i now have a fuel gauge that works.
Now i also replaced the green relay next to the yellow one thats sits on the tunnel behind the ics as my telltale for indicators doesnt work. Now my telltales still dont work on the dash but if i indicate right the hazard warning light flashes but not if i indicate left! Im wondering if i changed the corect green relay because today i noticed a larger green on directly behind the ics and above the pack of 3 relays. Any hints on this would be great guys.
