Speedo is intermittent

Hi all

My '98 Scenic speedo seems like it has an electrical fault. Most of the time it reads 0. But sometimes it works fine. I'm guessing there is a wire somewhere with a loose connection - but where to start looking ? Help!

Have you tried a panel test? i have a 99 megane rt sport so it may be a little diffrent on the scenic,

With the ignition off.

push and hold in the button on top the left (wiper) stalk in ( thats the one which changes the display to mpg etc)

Turn the ignition on.

The panel goes thought continus test. and the speedo goes to max to zero..

Pressing the button on the stalk sets the panel back to normal.

From there you may be able to see if its the panel at fault or cabling else where.

Hope that helps.
