The bottom line is that the instrument panel was at fault. I was lucky enough to get exactly the right one for 30 from ebay and now everything works fine.

Also worth noting the remaining distance used to show '----' but now that's also fixed.
Hi Bernard . . .
I have the same symptoms on my T reg RXE.
If I charge the battery and replace it all is fine for a short while . . then all the dials die . . .goddamit!!!
Mind you after 150,000 miles I shouldn't complain.
Mind you there are many people with newer Laguna II's who seem to be getting the same problem after a relatively low usage . . .!!!??? (Bad design . . . ?)

Anyhow looks like a replacement/repair for me also.
A bit trickier to find an Auto one though. . . . :-(
Currently in Laguna_TC's garage:
Now Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 Sport
