112 CDI Clocks Issues
I know this is a repeated thread, and I've read most of whats around but here goes with my woes.
Not the original clocks mileage read 265,000. Last MOT before I bought it, the van was on 95,000 and 170,000 in 2 months is a bit of a push for any van!!!
1) Clocks turn themselves off every 5 seconds, only for a fraction of a second then return back to where they were. Everything works apart from speedo (see part 2) Occasionally they will just stop dead apart from the revs which will lock at about 1,000. Have to unplug at the back to reset back to "ticking" clocks. No beeping when lights on and doors are opened but rev counter will tick itself all the way round till it hits the stop.
2) Speedo has never worked from when I bought the van, previous owner said he changed the clocks to try and rectify this but to no avail. Was in the process of checking the sensor on the gearbox and tracing wires back only to find the yellow connector end of sensor cables under the dash not plugged in!! Hence why its not working. There is also another cable with a white connector not plugged in. Any ideas where these should plug in? The yellow/speedo cable is about 40-50cm to short to reach the clocks and obvious socket to connect to.
Any help on either of these issues would be much appreciated.
