DIS gone

Post by Dezzy on Tue Aug 31, 2010 3:44 am

Had battery problems again at the week end and had to get a jump, i had popped into the house and as i was coming back out i hear the 8 start when i got to the car matey is smiling "there you go mate" cheers i say as i see the sun roof opening.
I didn't think too much of it at the time but i took the car for a bit of a run and noticed i get the Press brake pedal notice but as soon as a gear is engaged it goes blank. The sunroof wouldn't close i had to wind it shut by hand, once i had and replaced the controls it now operates as normal. But i still have no DIS.

I have not checked any fuses yet but how sensitive are the electrics if matey had put the jump leads on the wrong terminal first? Because i'm anal like that and remember that in the owners book when removing the battery from the car Negitive comes off first, and goes on last. Which is what i did when i took it out for charging and the sunroof didn't open on it's own.

Anyone else had this?

have you checked the DIS simply isnt blanked bcause thats the current setting its chosen on? If you press the button on the end of the right stalk it will scroll through your computer trips and fuel etc but one of them is to have a blank display in case you dont want anything showing at all confused

Unfortunatly it's my car so it wouldn't be that easy. I had a 3 and half hour trip in it last night i tried allsorts in there holding down buttons even the reset, nothing.
I don't even get the gears up when i go over into tip. The amber warnings work at the top of the display though.
