Are There Any S1 Dash Experts Out There


Recommended Posts


Ive got a weird thing happening with my s1 dash, i can start the car and drive with everything fine then stop at the shops and when i start it again i'll have no tacho or speedo and sometimes the fuel and temp gauges go to full.

This could then last all day or dissappear next time i turn it off, on the odd occasion its even put up 999999 on the oddometer. All other functions continue work as nomal during the hissy fits.

Ive had the dash out check the earths and connections all seem fine.

I think there has to be some sort of relay controling the power to these parts of the dash as it only faults on start up but have had no luck finding one.

Has anyone else come accross this prob or have a wiring diagram for the dash and loom to help me sort this issue.

Cheers Daz

I have had a similar problem with speedo and rev counter freezing. The first time i took the battery lead off and put it back on to fix it but the second time i just turned the igntion off and on again. It hasn't happened for some time now. I think I saw a previous post saying that it could be caused during installation of an aftermarket stereo.

If its any help i had a problem in my S2 where I was driving along and all of a sudden the dash went out and everything stopped working e.g. speedo, rev counter and so on. Car drove OK though, I went home and restarted it a couple of times and no change. I then tried taking out each fuse under the bonnet and gave each a little clean if they looked dirty, hey presto the dash works again. Maybe give that a go and see if it helps

Thanks for the info still have the original stereo but i will poke around in that area tomorrow.

I had pulled every fuse out from the dash but not under the bonnet will try that as well.

    • Hello all, I would kindly ask if anyone had a Left Hand Side weather strip retainer (New Old Stock only please) available for the R34 GTR? Part number(s): 76871-AA101 / 76871-AA100 I have sourced the RHS but the LHS so far is proving elusive. I am based in the UK & will gladly pay shipping if someone has one available.  Many thanks
    • You can change the oil but I'd avoid full synthetic until you've done a few more km. Chrome or iron rings? If they're iron go for it they'll be fine, chome just a bit longer 
    • I hate to say it, but this isn't a 'great length' to steal a car. The people that steal high value cars are very used to stealing cars from garages. It really isn't a complicated process, a lot of people leave their keys in very typical places (think bowl/rack by the front door). You break into the house, grab the key and off you go. So what, in about 1 minutes time they have taken the car?  Probably goes without saying that most of these cars being pinched in this manner are the higher end Audi/AMG/etc. It's the same process though regardless of whatever the car is.  If you're worried about this, keep your car out of sight. If no one knows its in the garage, no one is coming for it. Other things include if you have an aftermarket ECU, change a setting so the car won't start even with the keys, setup CCTV cameras that ping your phone on activation etc.  If you think it's hard to break into a house to grab the keys first, just picture the fire fighters coming to recuse someone from a burning house. It's what, 10 seconds to gain entry if that? Locks only help honest people stay honest. 
    • Yes but when you buy that Nissan/Ryco filter it comes in a Nissan box labelled as Nissan. In this case it was in an Aisin box. A heads up would have been nice. If I had received it in an Exedy box I wouldn't have a problem if that's what Exedy supplied. I don't really care as long as it does the job as well as the Exedy did. 8 years of 300+rwkw with a fair bit of abuse. Time will tell as always. I have a swirl pot thingy, constantly self bleeding. If it is air in there it will sort itself out soon enough.
