    Default Clock/Trip Meters Not Holding Values

    Hi Guys,

    Finally collected my Veccy yesterday and I haven't stopped grinning like an idiot .

    However, there's two minor niggles and I thought I'd ask here before ringing the dealer;

    Firstly when I switch the ignition off the rev counter, temperature & fuel gauges freeze where they are until I next start the car, whereupon they return to zero and then climb back to the proper values.

    Secondly when I switch off the ignition for more than a minute or two the clock and trip meter on the dash all reset to zero, the trip counters on the BC all reset to zero except the fuel consumption which holds its value.

    I have to admit that I'm a little stumped so if you guys can suggest anything I'd very much appreciate it!

    Thanks

    Dan

    Sounds like you have a BCM module problem here, or perhaps a CIM module fault.

    I say this, as the CIM transfers all BC data from the main ECU to the low-speed canbus sysTEM.
    The CIM also controls the dashboard functions...mileage etc.

    The BCM on the other hand controls the main display including the BC screen.


    Firstly,have a good look at the fuse board at the end of the dash.

    Have a check of fuse 1 (delivery mode fuse for infotainment system), fuse 12 (overload preotection and relay), and then fuses 7 and 9 or 17 and 19 for the remainder of the BCM functions.

    That then leaves fuse 10, for cim module power and fuse 4 for accessories.

    If these are all intact, then return the car to the dealer.

    However firstly consider the following "normal" functions of the dash and instruments

    regarding the consumption figure, dependent upon engine, it will always reset to one figure...possibly about 38 mpg....nearer to 28 for the bigger petrol engines.

    The needles etc should fall to zero or minimum marks immediately, however the trip figure and odometer figure on the dash should remain illuminated for about 20 - 30 seconds after you turn off the engine, open a door, or unlock the car....otherwords whenever the interior lighting is illuminated.

    Everything should extinguish after this length of time, or when you lock the doors.

    Once again you are a star Rob!

    I'll check the fuses and failing that have a word with the dealer.

    Regarding the trip meter and distances/averages on the BC I assume that these are supposed to hold values when the ignition has been switched off?

    Cheers

    Yep, all four sets of values should be retained, until you do a reset, for both BC1 and BC2 regardless of whether your turn the ignition off or not.

    I did toy with the idea, that the screen may be missing one of it's browns or reds...but before messing, let the dealer have a look.
