[Question] Diesel odometer on my petrol Ibiza

    Hello everyone.

    I need some help.

    Right now I have a diesel odometer on my petrol Ibiza (0-200km/h 0-6500rpm against 0-200km/h 0-6000rpm).

    My rev-counter isn't working (probably because it's from a diesel version).

    Is there any way to put the rev-counter working (apart from replacing the odometer)?

    Thank you.

    Not something I've ever come across before but can I ask a question.

    Why do you have a diesel odometer on a petrol Ibiza?

    I have a diesel odometer on a petrol Ibiza because someone give me the diesel odometer when my original one decided to end his life. :lol:

    I would say that there is a fault with the rev counter if it is not working as expected.

    As there are plenty of examples of VW Caddys running with Ibiza dial clusters without issue.
    Myself included. I have a diesel with GTI clocks now and apart from the redline marker being in a different place (higher on the Petrol than diesel ) There is actually no difference with the dials. It still reads the correct revs.

    The bulb line at the bottom is the same for diesel and petrol. I had to move the ABS bulb indicator to the heater coil location. One issue of using the Ibiza dials in the Caddy was that the handbrake /low brake fluid light is on permanently. ( I still have to figure out to send the signal from the brake fluid reserve to the dials to stop this happening.
