In the last couple of days I have noticed a problem with the rev counter on my '92 CD B202. On start up yesterday the needle did not rise at all. Car drivng fine btw, 5-10 mins into my journey it started to slowly rise and eventually resumed normal operation. This morning it rose but steadily climbed to about 2000rpm.Then 5-10 mins into the journey it resumed normal operation. Car driving fine. Any ideas anyone?

Just guessing but it could be some kind of electrical contact at the back of the panel... I know theres a connector block or two going into the back of the speedo/rev counter array. Im sure some of the guys on here might be able to pin point it a wee bit finer.

Cheers

Had this myself... the cold weather causes the lubricant on the spindle to become more viscous/treacle like, and thus more difficult to move. Once you've been driving for a while, things warm up and it unsticks.

You can try taking it out, cleaning it and re-lubing but it's a v fiddly job (and doesn't always work). In the end I just got a s/h one from a breaker and put that in instead.

On my Carly I've a lazy speedo.

If you don't drive that car for a week or more, when you do the speedo doesn't start to register until you are doing 30, the next start it's 25, and after 10+ journeys it's back to working normally.
