    Default 1996 405 SRDT A/C Fan & Tacho

    I am having a couple of problems:
    Firstly, the fan is not working and I have been told that the whole front section of the dash will need to be replaced. Is this correct?
    Secondly, Does anyone else have probs with the tachometer on the 405 SRDT? Mine doesn't work, was fixed but stopped working within a week. My parents have two 405 SRDT wagons and they have problems with their tachometers too.
    I am a total technophobe and would really appreciate any assistance.

    The tacho on my SRDT also occasionally goes for a quick 30 second smoko but generally I get an honest days work from it. I would check the connection to the sensor. (I intend to do that when I have the time). I take it you mean the heater?blower fan. It should be accessible from behind the glove box without removing the entire dash. Unfortunately I sold the spare that I had.

    You might try cleaning the contacts on the copper ribbon where the connecter joins to the top of the inmstument binnacle with some light gauge sandpaper. Buff them til they're shiny.

    A better option to sandpaper is a pencil eraser, Use the soft white section forst to clean up the copper tracks, it is alot kinder. If all else fails use the ink part of the rubber.

    My 2 cents worth, it works well on circuit boards as well.

    A pencil eraser is best -glass paper or emery is too abrasive , especially on the flexible "printed circuit" ribbons.
