In Topic: Instrument Reboots When Starting Car

Finaly to reply, i delayed doing anything over holiday period and although problem persisted the car always started.

Finaly got battery checked, dunno how this relates but reading was 232 mah when battery sticker said should be 320mah.

New battery now in, a lot higher rating 450mah and no problems as yet

Thx for advice

Battery changing is a bugger sometimes.

Had same problem with mine few weeks ago, I would open it up clean all contacts and maybe scrape a little to ensure good contacts then retry programming, took 20 minutes and maybe 20 goes to actually get mine to work. Keep trying to reprogram at least a good dozen times.

This is weird, the loss of ps has not happened again however a couple of other things have happened recently maybe cold weather related or not.  2 days ago starting ok in the morning the low fuel and water temp lights came on and the digital display dissappeared, rev of engine and all returned to normal, this morning mileage and clock display dissappeared and petrol guage showed empty when I know I had a good half tank, on revving the whole display seemed to reset with with it cycling through display as if it was a self test and again all returned to normal giving correct data. 

Any ideas why and could it be linked to first post on here?
