52 MCS Rec Counter Doing Nothing
New to all this Mini stuff but I previously had a Nissan S14a, Civic Jordan Turbo, stupid things like that so don't mind picking up a spanner.
Basically, picked a 52 plate cooper s up in Barnsley (190 miles from me) for what I considered a good price. Couple of little issues obviously, exhaust rattles, already fixed, and the remote central locking is dodgy which doesn't really bother me, I just use the key.
The bit that's getting me is I drove the car the 190 ish miles home and it was spot on.
Started it the next morning, everything was fine. Drove literally 20 meters and the rev counter above the steering column (I don't have sat nav) started twitching, and then died, constantly at 0. All lights still work etc.
Checked the interior fuses just there and they all seem fine.
Other people seem to have had similar issues however I can't find any solutions.
Anybody got any ideas?
