I agree with you. Hopefully the instrument cluster is OK as it is expensive and not easy to come by!
Once again, thank you and have a nice evening. I hope that you and your family enjoy your time in China.

As the mechanic is busy with other orders, the earliest slot is next week's Wednesday so I am left thinking about what to do.....
I just want to share with you that my Dash problem has gone!
This morning, I pulled out the fuses ( one by one ) below the steering column
to see whether these two gauges ( fuel and temperature ) will fall to zero but to no avail. Then, I took the car for a short drive hoping to recharge the battery and when I came back, the dash problem has suddenly gone! All four warning lights are back and the two gauges fall back to zero, once the car is switched off!
immediately, I drove the car to the battery shop and with headlights and aircon on, the shop owner confirms that the alternator is charging normally so for the first time in 2 weeks, I left the battery cable on because I want to see whether there is still power drain-out while the car is stationary.
I do not know whether my action this morning has reset the on-board computer and cleared it of bad memory! There may still be some wiring problem but is it wasting of time and money to follow up while the faults are gone? Furthermore, I do not want to create new problems by letting the mechanic to go into wirings which must have been modified over the years, by the previous owner, before I took over the car in the Year 2005.
Your valuable comments would be very much appreciated!
