    Default Honda Civic (2008) Rpm meter flash

    Aoa everyone!
    Hope you all are doing good. Ive come across an issue today, needed advice and professional help asap.
    Today, i took the car out and noticed the rpm meter flashing after abt 8 secs. The rpm/tachometer/odometer along with speedometer flashes for a sec and then resets to normal position. Even if its on ignition II it doesnt stop flashing. I took it to honda point (lhr) and asked for help. They didnt attach it to the computer to check anything out, instead they went with the diasgnosis step. Everything seemed normal apart from the rpm needle which on its way back gets stuck at arnd 1.5rpm mark and starts to vibrate (they didnt mention any error code appearing)They even checked the battery charge level, the terminals and the wires which connected the meter but cudnt figure out anythng. Afterwards, they tuk the meter out and attached it to another car which resulted in the same flashing after 8 secs (even on ignition II). Hence everyone said to change the meter from honda for Rs. 31,500 ONLY. Lol
    The alternative method is to get the meter repaired from "Jublee meter shop" on montogmery road or get a second hand meter from billal gunj and get the ic changed with the current one.
    Im attching a pic while it flashed. It flashed with handbrake, seat belt and oil light on while rpm went from 1 or so to 0 and back to 1.

    Need to know if anyone else went through the same problem. If so, what options do i have? Shall i go n try getting it repaired or does anyone think theres a different problem altogether? The car is rarely driven, last week i got it washed n waxed and i didnt experience anything back then, so i dont knw how it all happened wothout driving or doing anything watsoever. Kindly help and guide!

    It's like my 3rd time going there in my life I'll take pictures of what ever I can find and the price and post it here. You can evaluate it yourself/any other member.
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

He also gave an option that a guy at bilal gunj can get a brand new one from dubai.. I was like billah gunj taraki karaha hai? Lol.. His price for a new one frm dubai was arnd 20-23k.. Honds gives it for 31.5k.

    I've consulted local mechanic, he told me he will try to source one for 10-12,000.
    I went today and asked 2 shops. One is giving it for 18,000 and the other one is giving it for 15,000. I am sure they are charging 2-3000 extra. The 15,000 one, the plastic thing is broken, but he will change it

    Pictures- The first set of pix is the 18,000.
    2nd set is of 15,000.

    Enjoy!

    I can confirm that tomorrow. They will test it in front of me and they will give warranty as well. My mechanic friend is on the look out as well, he has some contacts in Lahore as well. I can forward you the Lahore shop number afterwards.

    Btw, I think one of these are dodgy. Check post 50 and 52. There is a difference in the back cover. They're both different colours- Black and white. Plus one says "Visor" and one says "Cover".

    How does yours look like? And I am sure you can get cheaper ones in Lahore. Just gotta look in the right place!

    Brother dont go anywhere yet.. Let me check a few shops here.. If i dont find anythng intersting, ill let you knw.. The prob with our local electricians/mechanics are they always think they r 100% right.. And try convincing you regardless if thry r wrong.. Whereas, its the other way arnd.. The guy who tried repairing my meter he so called knew eveeythkng.. Jab kaam kiya tu.. Aho.. Lol.. If i find too many variations here i might just go n get a new one.
