    Hi
    I have a Disco 1 which on occasions, perhaps twice a month, starts up fine in the morning except that for a few minutes the rev counter does not work and the battery warning light is on. Seems to clear after a short ride... really not sure what could be the problem.. any suggestions would be appreciated.:)

    Usual problem .. connection on the alternator is mucky .. remove it and clean/replace or remove it, cut off and replace with new connector. ;)

    New connector is best.
