All the readings on my dashboard suddenly dont work - speedo, petrol gauge, rev counter. My indicator lights, headlights, warning lights all still work, but the warning sound no longer works if I open the door with the headlights on.

I checked the manual but cannot see a fuse which relates specifically to these? Any suggestions before I take it into the garage? Which fuse relates to the dashboard dials and petrol gauge?

the easy way to sort this as mine did it is to remove the 5amp fuse at the top left of your fuse box and they just put it back in lol

Been awhile posting here

My 2002 VTR is doing this now (owned it since new) ive found out that if i put the fans on to max it instantly kills the dash, all except the light showing headlamps, indicators. (it started brief stints a few years ago)

The Washer motor stops, the wipers go by themselves. This happens whether its idling or on motorway. Its got a nice healthy battery, resetting the battery generally worked in the beginning. Ive taken the dash off, been through the wiring (as these are on different circuits, you'd think there shorting or touching somewhere, but all seems ok)

Only decent thing is its cutting down on the mileage, anyone found a permenant fix or the fault?

unplugging the battery for a few hours resets the ecu
