    I take it you have tried unplugging and plugging back in, in case there's a bad connection?

    Im putting hand through the side by fuse box and wriggling. Lights gone on and off if wriggled hard. But keeps coming back on to safe mode where the mileage reads? Not saying fuse no more?
    Turns over but just cuts out?
