A failing speedometer it will result in the car not starting or cutting out after 2-3 seconds.
We have the equipment and knowledge to transfer the immobilizer data into a donor speedometer.
The instrument cluster can be easily damaged by using cheap tools or by having a lack of knowledge.
This can cause damage to
the flash data which is the operating system.
The memory data which
stores the mileage or the immobilizer can also get damaged which will
