Espace 02 dashboard problems - Help
Hi. I hope someone can help me!
There are probably loads of related posts here, but being a newby I can't find one that is exactly the same fault.
I have a ph3 espace on a 52 plate. For the record it's a 2.0 16v Authentique.
The dashboard display does not work at all (no lights whatsoever, apart from a static alarm LED) unless you drive a distance of about 10 miles.
After this distance, the dash will suddenly start coming to life slowly, blinking and flashing until it settles down and begins to work as it should.
What is going on???? Has anyone else had this happen to them?
I have tried disconnecting the battery (as suggested by a local garage!) with no joy (obviously!).
Am I right in thinking that the display is run off a single computer somewhere under the passenger footwell? Would replacing the computer from another Phase 3 2.0 16v work, or is it not that simple?
Any help would be much appreciated, as it is driving me absolutely insane.
Thanks in advance.
