    Astra G MK4 Clocks

    I have a r reg astra g 1.7td and ive found my full instrument panel keeps freezing and switching off.

    i can be driving down the road cracking on as uasual then all of a sudden the speedo sticks at what ever speed ive been doing i loose the digi trip fuel gauge and temp gauge.

    THEN if i use my indicators all of a sudden everything comes to life any ideas anyone?

    As above, check the connection is tight and the terminal is clean.
