    My EG is ticking over at 0 RPM, when i rev the car the rev gauge works but wen stopped its completely at 0.

    The car hits the limiter at 7k RPM also.

    Aswell driving last nite i noticed the sign for full beams were on the clocks but were dim even tho i didnt have the full lights on, and the lights on the car seem very dull also.

    Would i be correct in saying its the altenator giving trouble?

    When you rev the car do the lights go brighter? Could be either battery / alternator/ earth connections

    I'd assume you have a weak electrical signals or a minor wiring fault. Could be the above issues.

    Any chance you've messed about with the rev counter needle and put it on about 1k to low?
