Hi all. I have a 2001 1.9td and I'm having a bit bother with an erratic rev counter. Just flickers all over the shop at all revs, but gets worse the higher the revs. I haven't had chance yet to check it out yet and hopefully someone will be able to point me in the right direction.
Thanks. T:

Yes and no :(
The fault is with the alternator. So far I've had four to try and fix it. One new one which was wrong, took it back and shelled out an extra £30 for the joy of a rev counter, two which were the right one but wouldn't work until the engine was revved to 2k and finally a second hand unit which turned up wrong and broken.
In the meantime I had put the old one back on and the rev counter is now working as it should but still having charging issues.

1.9td. Could be a bad connection with yours, but mine started when I started having charging problems. Or at least I think it did as it took me a few weeks to get chance to check it out. Best of luck with yours if you decide to tackle it. Does the 2.5 rev feed not come from the ecu like the 1.9tdi?
