hi its shorted out so the dash lights, oil gauge and voltage gauges are not working.
Hi Dom it is just the top circuit board the one that controls the oil pressure gauge and volt meter gaugeand they are the only 2 gauges not working?
and the clear coloured wiring connector (that big plug on the back) checks out ok....as does the black "C" connector plug under the dash?
if other gauges are out (speedo etc) and instrument lights too check fuse #7 / #8 and even #10 (in fact check them all!!)
here is a wiring schematic that will be of use (2nd pdf in list) - it is a US pod but that upper board is the same for all intents and purpose:

Hi thanks i not bothered if the oil gauge is in pounds.Ah OK Danny, got it now...
you see that element come up for sale every now and again....rare though.
there is one in Canada at the moment, but it has the oil in lbs, not bar as our euro models have.

Crafty!if it is of any use another one a bit closer to home, here in Germany (but also a US version in psi)
ebay nr. 161880337191
you could contact them, tell them it is for the USA model (in psi) and then ask if they have similar for the euro market (in bar)...they will reply no, then you send in an offer (that is how I would do it!)
