    Mine has stopped working a couple off times and I get a code saying eep_2 or something where the mileage is. Can't remember exactly what it was I took a pic somewhere which I will have to find. Turned the engine off left it a minute, turned back on and everything worked fine. It's done this maybe twice.

    I'd leave it a few days if they are working again and if it stops then try and find the problem. May have just been playing up.

    There is a known fault whereby the wiring to the back of the dash instruments can chafe on the metalwork and cause intermittent faults. Usually pulling the instruments out and rerouting the wiring and maybe adding some insulating tape to the loom does the trick.
