Just got in the car, switched on, and the instrument cluster doesnt work. No tachometer, no speedo, no temperature gauge, no fuel gauge, no mileometer etc.
I disconnected the battery just on the off-chance that it would come back to life afterwards, but no joy.
Because I disconnected the battery, I have to enter the radio codes, but the one listed on the PDI document isnt valid so now the unit is "locked", looks like I'll have to drive about in silence as well.
Will call the dealer first thing monday. Will post back with an update.

This morning the cluster is working perfectly. Conclusion, this is an intermittent fault.
Radio still needs unlocking - will call dealer today

Update: intermittent clusters are a know problem caused by mobile phone interference (apparently).

Radio now working. When it reports "locked" wait 1 hour. Unit must be powered up (but not necessarily switched on) and you are presented with the option to enter your radio code. Initial value is 0000. I had changed mine sometime in the past (and forgotten, but now remembered) it burst into life first time
