Mk2 Polo warning lights and gauges not working

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 1990 Polo (1 litre engine). The fuel gauge and temperature gauge occasionally used to stop working whilst driving along. This was an intermittent problem and apparetly happened at random. When it happened, it would last an hour or two or maybe till the next time the car was started. However about a week ago it became permanent. So now the fuel gauge and temp gauge are permanently not working. This problem also affects the cluster of warning lights in the middle of the instrument panel, but does not affect the time clock or the speedometer. All other electrics (eg, external lights, internal lights, wipers, etc are working fine).

 

Anybody have any ideas what the problem might be? I am quite happy to dismantle the instrument panel, I just don't know what to look for after I do that. I'm hoping somebody can give me a few pointers to find the cause.

 

Thanks

That sounds like the voltage stabiliser unit in the speedo has died,  Try VW Heritage they probably will stock them

Thanks for the advice.  VW Heritage don't have them.  Actually I can't find them anywhere so far.  Will continue searching.  Thanks again.
