    I've heard of this problem...

    It was explained to me that there is a mismatch with the length of pins in the connecting block of the instrument cluster.....

    Can't remember if it was a recall item to be fixed, or not, certainly take it back to the dealer, hopefully they should have heard of similar problems.

    Hi jammy, exact same thing happened to me 3 weeks ago. All red lights came on in rev counter and all needles dropped to zero, and like you say, as quick as it happened, all went back to normal after 1-2 seconds. Too quick to detect any power loss, and don't think I lost lights. Bloody sh*t me up though.

    Anyway, took in to VX and they replaced the instrument panel and touch wood hasn't happened since. Take it in and tell them what happened and see what they say. Could be that COO (above) is right with the instrument pins etc.

    Good luck mate.
