Water got into the ECU. It's ****ed and you need a new one!
There are other threads on this, just recently infact.
This fix worked a treat cheers.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.
