    Default digital display

    hi all,
    ive got a 1998 vectra 2.0i cdx estate.
    my digital display shows the date, time, outside temperature, but the fuel consumption,miles left on remaining fuel, and mpg readings stays the same, next to the readings is a line with a small box through it but not on the time,date, etc
    i was wondering if any of you guys knew what maybe causing this, its not majorly important but its nice to know what fuel consumption im getting and how many miles left before filling up again!!

    thanks in advance

    richard

    Hello Mate, as you've got a Vectra B, and this is a Vectra C forum, expertise is going to be biased towards the newer shape, altho I'm sure someone will help if they can. Have you tried www.vectra-sport.com though?

    Hi Richard,

    Just a thought, but could it be that these figures are the average figures?
    Is the symbol a bit like these: Ø ø but with a square instead of a circle?

    So rather than showing you real-time figures it's showing you the average over 'x' amount of time, which is why they don't seem to be changing. Is there a button somewhere that can change the mode of that screen at all?

    I sometimes drive an Audi with work and this has the 'Ø' to denote average mpg etc on its trip computer.

    Cheers,
    Graham

    Saw this post and decided to reply (I havent been here for a LONG time)

    I have exactly the same fault on my Vectra 2003 elegance 2.0 TDi. It displays all the above you have mentioned but is stuck on how many mile
    I have left in my tank (which I suppose is the best to be stuck on!!). Anyway, when I get a fault, recently it was the bottle washer, my alarm came up on the screen over-riding the tank contents remaining but then to accept with the stalk didnt work. It only cleared when I filled the bottle wash again, which I guess triggers a level switch.

    I went to the local dealer and paid £30 (from memory) for a new stalk, fitted the new stalk (just a good tug) and nothing happened.

    Unfortunately, I cant help you out with this as I have been trying to rectify the problem myself for some time and cant seem to find a solution. I can only assume that the information goes back to either some sort of relay or the CPU. wherever this is or how much it costs in unknown at this point, I certainly dont want to go to the stealers to be seen off for something that might be nothing.

    I will keep an eye on this thread, I hope I have been of some assistance to you eg. its not the stalk!
