If I sit in the car and wait for 15 minutes or so (I was on the phone at the time, I wasnt just sitting there waiting :P) then the instrument cluster goes off, however, when I lock the car (certainly double lock then the instrument cluster stays on 24/7

Hi Clive tried it this morning an it just reset my trip meter. I used the same trick on my mk3 mondeo but can't seem to do it. Don't seem to have the same dash as the other pics seen on this forum. Please forgive the idiot
Thanks
Rob

Did you start the engine at the same time?
Press and hold the button and turn the key.

Yes that's exactly what I did. But it just beeped and reset my trip counter and started as normal.
Is there a length of time I'm sposed to hold the reset button for?
Thank you for this mate

Keep holding after starting, the first action of the test will be a dial needle sweep and full dash light illumination.
Further presses after this will cycle through further test phases.
I recommend photographing every test message on the screen so you don't miss any data.
