I have changed the bulbs in my clock/temp display on my 1999 Scenic Phase II.
All appeared fine, however, when the wife took car out yesterday she said the clock was wrong ands flashing.. I looked at it prior to setting off for work and reset clock. On getting back in car this morning after work it was fine.....!!
Wife had the car bit later on and said it was doing the same again.. yet again i have reset it and it appears ok again...

Have searched on the forums, cant find a similar thread !!
Anyone any ideas as to the cause of this random error ??

Many thanks....

Re: Clock error, loses time and flashes, randomly.. UPDATE

Thanks

Mine started like that and eventually the dash shorted out. Cost £200 to correct but renualt paid half. Get in touch with renualt. Everything will still run but no speedo. i used sat nav through this period.:(

thanks guys...

just to re-iterate though it not the all singing dash on mine, just the clock/temp/radio bit.... up in the centre of the dash....

now i find the bulbs have blown again....
