Frankia Ducato - Warning lights and no Speedo or Rev counter
Today I had to get my campervan MOT'd as the grace period expired. In the summer I changed the brake pads and did some habitation related projects. On starting the engine the ABS warning light came on and I noticed the rev counter was not moving. While driving, the fuel guage registered empty with the warning light on, the temperature gauge did not move as the engine warmed up, and the speedo also didn't move. Finally the indicator warning lights did not blink although the lights were working. The MOT test centre connected to the diagnostic machine which gave a fault saying "ABS NBC mode absent". I will verify that with the garage tomorrow when I pick it up. They said the fault would require attention from a Peugeot dealer (its a fiat X250 3L but i guess the chassis/engine components are the same) so before mortgaging the house I wondered who might have seen the same issue.......
I have googled the error message (I don't have the actual code) but cannot find such an error message and the only other information is that the MOT test garage asked if I had bump started it - pretty tough with a 8.4 metre campervan (so the answer was no). I'm expecting this to be a long and difficult and expensive problem. In terms of history I have not had any issues with warning lights although to be fair the vehicle hasn't left the drive this year due to COVID.
Has anyone with a fiat Ducato 2007 3L come across this problem?
