ASR, ABS, Instrument Cluster faults, Does anyone have similar problems

Hi, I'm new to this site. looking for a bit of help...
I have a 2004 (54 plate) Vito 115 with an intermitent fault on the dash board, When driving along the motorway 60-70mph, the speedo, milomter and rev counter stop working, also lots of lights come on to suggest the engin has stopped, occosionally i also lose some power but can still keep the speed steady although it won't go any faster. I guessing there is an electrical fault somewhere... any ideas.

There is a second fault which may or may not be connected. The ABS and ASR stopped working sometime ago and the two lights on the dashboard stayed on, i eventually found a damaged cable which i repaired and the lights went off... all OK for 3 days. Then the lights came back on together with the red brake light.( all on the dash). But i can't find seem to find out why. MB suggest the ABS/ ASR controller/ pump thingy needs replacing, but there not certain... Any ideas.

Has anyone else had similar problems? Oh by the way, my vitos on 176,000 miles so i guess things are going to wear out.

Hi Martin,
Steve has not logged in here since 2009.
My best suggestion would be to post your issue in our Vito section of the forums.
Cheers and welcome to the site.
