    I have a 406 1998 R Reg 2.1 TD. Speedo has worked intermitently for 12
    months and now packed in. Mileage not being clocked up. Have paid for
    a second hand instrument panel, which includes rev counter,temperature
    gauge.I was told it had been tested but when changed with my panel the
    speedo still didnt work.

    However, decided to my old instrument panel in and now half the
    backlighting is not working but backlighting was working before things
    were changed around.

    Any ideas, I dont want to get rid of car but dont want to pay loads to
    put this right.

    INTERMITTANT BREAK IN THE WIRING.I TOO HAVE TRIED TO REPLACE THE
    INSTRUMENT PANEL,GET A MANUAL ON IT ITS CHEAPER THAN A GARAGE,GOOD LUCK!.

    Could be a stuck caps lock key?

    Justin unbuttoned Clothilde's tight blouse and her breasts fell out. He
    picked them up and put them back in again.
    "Thank you," said Clothilde, polite even in passion. "I'm always losing
    them."

    I also have a 406 1998 R Reg 2.1 TD and have the same problem with
    backlights. They seem to be very poor connectors. I find that thumping the
    dash generally gets them back on!

    .....i have a 91 405 DL US Model and the same thing....but, i thought
    my problem was something
    with the cable? because, one day when i pushed the 'reset' button on
    the trip odometer, it never
    worked again....anyways, ive gotten used to it now...

    when i'm down near NY, ill stop in and see Alberto at Ramsey
    Peugeot....he's in Ramsey NJ and has tons of parts and 90's Peugeot
    out back...
