When turning the ignition on it lights up the ESP, parking brake, coil light etc... then on to start the engine, sometimes nothing at all, normally the engine starts but the rev counter, speedo dials do not pickup. This fault first happened about 1 year ago, and then again just this weekend. Is there a simple fix or is best to visit the MB garage for this?

This does look like a cluster fault I would get an indie to plug it into STAR

Thanks, can you recommend a garage in the Huntingdon/Cambridge area?

Hello and welcome to you,, some of these thing are so expensive now, and out of all proportion to the real cost,,add to it the fact that no parts are available, or service info does show what the cars of the future will be like.
