can you elaborate like what sensors did you change and what about the steering is 'shocking' when you hit a pothole or just regular driving.

JUST the mileage and speedometer everything else works?

Hi, tried a new cluster which didn't change anything, the only things that work are fuel, temp, Rev counter, airbag, and some sort of brake warning light, nothing else works, the 2 faults that come back are both rear abs sensors no signal so was wondering if this could be an abs module fault? Thanks for your help

Think it's my next port of call to trace the wires from each rear sensor and check there continuity att the abs pump plug
