Evening all

When fixing the broken air intake pipe on a 2013 Qashqai I decided to degrease the oil and dirt from the engine.

Looks like I was a bit too generous applying it and has found its way into the electronics. Several strange things are now happening.

The odb port doesn't connect.
The tripometer/mpg resets to zero every time its started.
The hands on the speedo shake for several seconds on start up.

Does this point to a specific connection?

Would removing them and using contact cleaner help

Thanks
Leigh

Would be worth disconnecting the battery then unplugging the ECU/S and blowing the terminal blocks out with an airline being careful not to blow directly onto any weatherproofing on the ECU.

Also a hard reset wouldn't go amiss, however I'm not familiar with the specifics of the Qashqai so I can't say how to do it.
