Dashboard fixed by WD40

Dear all,

Can I just tell you about my dashboard problem, it all started in January 2008 when my dash on my Renault Scenic 2004 started flashing on and off, this got worse as the months went on. Then by chance I was watching BBC Watchdog and another make of car semmed to be having the same problem with there dash.

So I went out bought a Haynes manual and took my dash board out sprayed with WD40 and put back in and after about 150 miles with the heater going full blast the dash came back on and has been on since.

It is worth giving this a try before you go and spend money on your car

If you need any more information do not hestitate to contact me and I will help if I can.

Good luck all.
