Hi Guys,

While flooded under water my dash was going nuts and the tacho was spinning round back and forth and has now stopped on the wrong side of the needle. Anyone had this problem or know how I could fix it?

Thanks.

Water got into the ECU. It's ****ed and you need a new one!

There are other threads on this, just recently infact.

ECU is fine and tacho would be working fine as well if I could get the arm back to 0 on the right side of the needle. Does anyone know if this can be done without having to pull the whole dash apart?

I have heard of it before (maybe not on a patrol). Leave the car in neutral (or park if auto) and bring the revs up close to the limiter (not more than a second or two). The needle should reset and follow the revs down.

Cheers,
Nic
