    I have a really annoying problem with the speedo on my bessacar fiat ducato jtd.

    When starting from cold it does not work for about 10-15 minutes then suddenley just comes on . Sometimes it will stop again whilst driving but usually its from startup
    I suspect the fuel guage is faulty as well but I can live with that
    anyone any ideas re the speedo??

    Not familiar with the fiat but one would presume that it is a loose connection either on the back of the speedo itself or on the sensor, wherever that is.

    I have seen threads about a nylon speedo drive in the gearbox shearing due to contaminated gearbox oil.

    The reversing light switch in the same related place is rubbish as well as I have to renew at 3 years -15000 miles.
