Hi folks, the instruments (Speedometer, Revs etc) & indicators on my 280SL have died. Everything else works (fans, headlights etc) so I assumed fuze 5 had blown. Changed the fuze but no joy. Anyone encountered this problem please?

No sure of which fuse, I’d check them all as they can have a poor contact at the end of fuse.

Also give the fuse holder a light rub with Emery paper. They're notorious for bad contact.
