have i been f**ked?

i took my car into an auto electricians last week because there was a short somewhere on my alternator and speedo sensor circuit, the fault turned out to be near the 02 sensor on the exhaust according to the autoelectrician who worked on it, but when i got the car back its got even more problems now.

- the speedo doesnt work
- the rev count doesnt work
- the engine temp gauge doesnt work
- the fuel gauge worked for 2 days but now its gone all the way to the top (normally i wouldnt complain, but i havent put ANY in it since i got it back)
- the boot open light doesnt come on (on the instruments)
- the engine check light doesnt come on
- the oil check light doesnt come on
- the hand brake light doesnt come on

the only ones that work are

- the green key (immobiliser light)
- the battery check light

i took my dials out of the dash today to have a look to make sure everything is plugged in and noticed what looks like some dodgey soldering!?!?!

what do you guys think?

Haha got to love that! Hes also damaged part of the PCB (look to the right of the wire). Take it back to him, tell him hes a fuckwit and either sort it out or replace your mutilated dials.

Edit:

ETA I also have a set of EK3 dials if you need a cluster.

I have absolutely no idea, it seems he is trying to jump across the 2 lights as to why he would want to do this I guess only he will know! Defiantly take it back to him and either ask him to fix it or give you the money for a new one.

That cluster has got to be changed.... I certainly would not put that back in my motor!

Personally I would not let him work on it again.... get your money back, he's got to be a knob with that quality of work.

Yeah do what Civit said, get your money back for the work that he did and try and push them for a new cluster (I wouldn't hold my breath on this though).
