Thats exactly what it is, loose grounds. don't bother getting another from a junk yard because it will most likely have the same problem or will eventually do the same thing. Took mine out soldierd the grounds at a few places and has worked ever since. Now if i could just get the stupid a/c to stay on!

I have an Audi a3 99reg and the speedometer is no longer working but the rev counter and all other gauge s r working fine what could be the problem????

Check if your speedo counter is mechanical the is the cable either broken on the gear box side or behind the dash. If is an electronic one then check the electronic speed sensor on the gear box.
Good Luck Emma !

Not to sure, but i think its cable. Loosen the nut that holds the cable to the speedo drive on the gearbox. check if the inner cable is broken.
