Hi there I have a 1999 V reg Megane alize 1.4e
every now and then my speedo doesn't work when i set off
but after about 12 to 18 miles it will start to work again.
I have been told it's an electronic system and renault want £80 quid just to look at it and they said they might not be able to find out whats causing it. Does anyone out there have a similar problem they have solved I would like to know how to go about fixing it as i don't want to get a speeding ticket :d

Simon:crazy:

:crazy: Yes I have ABS and the last independant garage I went to didn't want to touch it.
If the sensor is on the ABS can you tell me how to resolve
this issue as it is driving me insane thanks all
