speedo and fuel gauge



speedo and fuel gauge

Postby Stiletto » Tue Jan 26, 2016 2:08 am

I took my car to a bodyshop to replace a damaged rear door and replace a faulty door lock, I got it back today and the speedometer isn't working, also the fuel gauge is telling me to refill and the needle is erratic going up and down, even when I've re fuelled I spoke to the bodyshop and they said it's nothing to do with them and that they just replaced the door. I never had this problem with my car before. I'm guessing they've messed around with an electrical connection somewhere, which they've denied. Wondering what I can do to put this right could it be a fuse they've knocked somewhere?

Go back tell them they must look at it again, and fix it, either that or tell them you will send them a bill for fixing it with someone else.

They said they don't do electrical work, I asked another garage to look at the car and they said the speed sensor in the gearbox needs replacing, I don't believe this to be the case as it doesn't explain the fuel gauge. I'm thinking of taking this up with trading standards

If they replaced a lock it is likely that they do do electrics.
Is it a manual lock or switched by the key?
Is the light switched by the door?
Sounds like an earthing wire.

just an update the car fixed, an independent garage that does electrics scanned the car and found a thin wire damaged repaired it and everything back to normal.They claimed that the wire could have broken anytime due to the age of the car. Just a coincidence that it happened at the bodyshop. Well cost me £175
