Having sudden problem, both started at the same time.
Speedo not working and at the same time the fuel gauge keeps beeping and going from zero tp 1/4

On further investigation. The beeping is being caused by the low fuel warning signal. It would appear that that the speedometer is not working and the fuel reading is a power on/power off problem. Both seem linked as they occurred at the same time. Hope that may be off help to any helping bods. ty

What year is your Galaxy? I'm fairly sure I've read somewhere before that a dodgy earth (possibly in the engine bay?) could be responsible for causing various instrument cluster problems, but it'll need the input from some of the other guys here to be any more specific than that I'm afraid.
