Faulty Rev "Monitor" (?)

I wonder if anyone can give me some advice, the rev monitor that sits at the side of the speedo does not appear to be working.

When I start the car the lights all come on as part of the system start up (meaning that all of the lights are working) but when i am driving they do not do anything. Can anyone explain or tell me what i am doing wrong?

You really have to be pulling high revs for this to display anything.

Normal driving will not display anything.

I did think that and have therefore tried it to see if anything happens but still nothing. I also have a problem with the external temperature sensor and have read/am still reading the threads on here about that, but you dont think that this could be linked? (Not sure how other than that is an electrical fault also).

Yes the economy meter does work.

When you switch off the rev or economy meter the White writing also disappears however with this problem the white "Rev" is still there but no lights light up as i am driving. It is really strange.

I have tried resetting all of the settings, but it doesnt solve the problem...

You really do have to get into very high revs for the lights to come on. By the way, they come on two at a time, so basically it is only three stages.

You have to pretty much red-line the revs for the rev counter to kick in from my experience...

Thanks for the links above, i did have a look but i must have missed that one... duh!

I have asked this question in another thread before and i know this is totally off topic but has anyone had the external temperature sensor replaced and does this stop the temp from reading 55c when it is clearly a little chillier!?

So funny reading this thread, i had same problem with rev counter not coming on! until one day i got stuck in snow and was spinning the front wheel on snow for traction was doing about 3.5rpm going on to 4rpm before low behold i saw those magical rev lights come on! Im more of a calm, tame driver so dont think i will see them much on normal driving!

Apologies - it's my fault really. I have now written a searching guide, and a link to it will be included in the PM that new users get: http://www.civinfo.com/forum/basic-t...rch-forum.html

I thought mine were faulty too, but one day I was running late and had to push and they appeared!. you do have to take it to the limit to get them to come on. In nearly two years of ownership I've only seen them come on twice.

Yes, I wasn't aware that they actually turn off at all!
