    Is the door closed whilst this is happening?

    Only asking as when my drivers door is open my interior light flashes but that is most likely the door switch.

    Cluster Uk are the best people to send them to, or find a a guy like "danio". I have bought another set of clocks and he is coming to recode them to my car, quality !!! This should usually be at least £150, same price as having them repaired, but mine have been done once by BBA Reman but i would send them back there as these have only been fixed 12 months

    Isn't this issue sometimes something to do with the speedo sensor on the gear box?

    Would be an idea to scan for fault codes before jumping in and changing stuff that may be symptomatic of another problem

    Agree with everyone, get this scanned. My car had a problem with sticking speedo, dash lights flicking, and radio going off and on. Scanned showed it was the regulator that controlled my current which was spiking over 12v.
