10 posts in this topic

Does anyone know why I have this error (fail)?
I was google it but all I could find is something about updating BC software?!
I am not sure if I understand right...

Hi Michael,

IIRC, the issue is due to a bad chip on the instrument cluster, but it doesnt affect the operation of the cluster,

Can you confirm if its misbehaving at all?

you will have to excuse me as I am a Miles Per Gallon man :p

So your getting 7.8 litres per km? if thats right that is our equivelant of 18 MPG which unless your driving your car like a race car is terrible.

When was it last serviced?

OK in which case that translates to our 41.1MPG, to be fair, from a 1.6 TDCI thats not a bad starting point.

I would say the best thing you can do is blank off your EGR valve - that will boost MPG and also give it a good service. Get the oil and its filter changed along with a new air filter.

Like you I had similar mileage, but by the time I did these, I added about 10 - 14 MPG to the total.

Thx for reply...

I will change oil and filter tomorrrow and see how it's going... Considering EGR valve... I see there is way to clean it, I will do that for begining. If that is not good enough will remove EGR valve.

to be honest just blank it!

Its an extremely cheap fix and gives new life to the car! makes it more responsive smoother and just a lot better to drive :)
