    Guys,

    My 308GTSi QV tripmeter (mileage counter) stopped working. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

    Thanks for any input.

    Any other dials (most importantly the speedo) not working?

    The clock is always slow but all gauges work including the speedometer. I left the car unused for six months, starting the engine every week to warm it up. After the paintwork was completed, I drove it for a month or so and the tripmeter became 'sticky' working intermittently and finally stopped counting. Maddening!!!

    Cheers

    If the speedo itself and the 'regular' odo are working, then it's probably internal to the speedo head. Altho some jiggling of the reset knob wouldn't hurt, but probably won't help either.
