Default HUD issues

Your cable is either broken inside the sleeve, or it'* disconnected at the HUD unit itself.

my cable broke off at the switch itself, so like 8 months ago, i used a pair of pliers to adjust the hud image, and i havent had to move it since, its in the perfect spot.
might consider doing that?
