Default T25 Dash Lights + Temp Guage stopped

Just collected my T25 from the garage this evening, following a quick job to replace the master cylinder and sort clutch/break fluid. However, on way home the dash lights went and the temp gauge and sensor light no longer work. Any thoughts? Has the mechanic knocked something when fitting new master cylinder?

Cheers for any advice

There's an electrical wafer (pcb) that will've been knocked when he was replacing the master cylinder. In my experience the wafer is now knackered. They become brittle with age, rather than him being ham-fisted.

You can't buy a replacement wafer, but can get an upgraded replacement kit.

Here's a link to one:

It was the first one I found and looks a bit pricy. I'm sure they can be had around the 150-170 mark.

Make sure you get the correct one.

*Edit* If you're handy with electrics, you can find the plans online and pick the parts up at any electrical shop.
