RPM problem. Needle drops to bottom of dial

Recommended Posts


I have a 2012 hilux SR which had a heap of dust in the instrument panel area after being on dirt roads. I cleaned out the panel and re connected but now the RPM needle when the car starts drops to the bottom and doesn't sit on zero

ive you tube and this occurs with other cars. I've spoken to Toyota and they say it doesn't happen to there cars. I had an auto electrician look at it when putting in some driving lights and they said they don't know


it actually works when you reve the engine. Just needs to be reset somehow to start at the correct starting point. 

Does anybody have any ideas. Appreciate your thoughts.

thanks doug
