Default Rev counter stopped working Audi 80 2.8 B4

Hi everyone,

My old 80 has been laid up for a while, I have started using it over the last few days and the rev counter has packed up, any ideas?

Thanks James

A thump might work.....

Check connections and fuses and for possible wiring issues... may mean having to remove it unfortunately.

Try unplugging and reseating the plugs on the back of the clocks. The autocheck on my previous 90 would periodically stop working, taking the clocks out and putting them back in was enough to coax it back into life.
