    Strange dial problem

    Ive just picked up a 2002 1.7dti astra last week and on sunday i noticed a strange problem with the dials, id just parked up in a multistory carpark and was sat in the car with the engine ticking over as i was counting money to pay with anyway it then started to idle erraticly going from 900 to just over 1000Rpm and the speedo started to move upto about 10mph even though i was not moving, and when i reved it my slef the speedo moved too. so i turned it off and restarted it and it was still doing it, so i went round the shops and when i got back a few hours later it seemed fine and its not done it since. any ideas what would cause this?

    My 2003 van has done this a couple of times when sat in traffic, I don't think its anything to worry about.
