Speedo Needles

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a cure for my speedo as the dials light up fine from cold but once I have had the car running for 10 minutes they flicker then eventually go black hence I cannot see what speed I am doing. Surely it must just be a bulb or LED that needs replacing ?

you can buy the speedo face with the needles attached im sure of it from lexus,

the needles are made from iddy biddy diodes they become brittle after time and fail, (my spedo and tach went black so i ended up buying a new cluster from breakers and just swapped the needles over

one day i might have a go at repairing them myself, if i ever get time
