Re: Speedo/Odometer Not Working - MOT Due

My bus is currently in the garage having the king pins sorted 8O 8O

I'm hoping the garage are going to sort the cable issue out at the same time, but if not, I will be purchasing a new cable and giving it a go.

Re: Leisure Battery Recommendations Please

We have a automobile battery specialist shop just down the road from me, so I'll probably drive down to him and get him to take a look and let me know what size I will be able to fit in there. I don't need anything massive, as I'm not running any fridges or kitchen equipment etc.

Re: Leisure Battery Recommendations Please

Had the wiring relocated to the engine bay in the end.

Still need to purchase the leisure battery, but the bus is in the garage at the moment.

Cheers.

Re: Leisure Battery Recommendations Please

Cheers guys for the advice and information.
I will ask Iain when he arrives tomorrow if it is possible to relocate the split charge to the engine bay, rather than under the R&R...... problem is, he will have already built the loom I'd imagine.

Re: Speedo/Odometer Not Working - MOT Due

Ahh... gotcha.
Will give it another try when I get some spare time.
It did have a male part in the end of the cable, but that looked a bit rounded, so maybe that is the culprit.
Thanks Graham.

Re: Speedo/Odometer Not Working - MOT Due

Took the speedo cable off the back of the speedo and it looked nothing like the cables that you posted Graham, unless I need to remove the collar: -

Sorry for the cr@p photo.

Re: Speedo/Odometer Not Working - MOT Due

So... Last check is to unscrew the end off the back of the speedo and position it so someone else can check/ see (whilst you are driving!) at the open end that the inner is actually turning so should be driving the speedo round. It should be OK.. but best to check before you seek to replace or repa...

Re: Speedo/Odometer Not Working - MOT Due

Hi All, I have finally had time to get the bus out and have a look at the hub and behind the speedo and everything looks fine. I had a fiddle around with the cable behind the speedo and it feels like its attached well...... so I still have no idea why the speedo isn't working. :roll: 20170529_170551...
