Clock not working..

Post by Retrofrench »

I have a clock next to my speedo instead of a Rev counter. The clock doesn't appear to work? I would assume it gets its power from the battery unless it has an internal battery? Any ideas? And the speedo needle appears to have severe Parkinson's, I recall the exact same thing on my Renault 5 - curable or just a quirky french thing?!

Oops - posted in the wrong place, not sure if I can move it?!

Change the speedo cable for wavy needle.

Clock should just work off the battery. Change it or work out what is blown?

Thanks for that. I'll try and get a new speedo cable. The clock is part of the speedo cluster so it can't be easily changed? I'll check all the fuses today after I've serviced the car.
