Hello to all,
I have a problem with my trip computer, it has all 6function, but just 2 are working (Outside temp, km with fuel in tank). the total km is showing 0, But the mechanic odometer is running good. The average fuel consumption and average speed and other functions is showing dashes (---). It's very irritating, i have checked fuses, and switch connector. Can someone help me ? I think this is common problem and someone should have an answer.
Thanks for answers and sorry for my bad English, it's not my native language.
oh and the cluster is VDO

Is everything else on the cluster functioning properly?

Are you checking it with the vehicle moving?

Does the cruise work?
I had a heck of a time with mine a few months back and found a wire at the top of the cluster was bad.
Trip info didn't work and cruise didn't work. The cluster sends a speed signal to the cruise control unit (relay) in the OBD-I cars ('93 - '95).

yes, i'm testing on moving car. All wires are good, saturday i tested everything.
I don't have cruise control. Everything is working fine. Even the Km's left till empty tank is showing okay, temp is showing. but everything else is showing zeros(0) or dashes (---). i am thinking off relay. But I don't know which one i have to test, and how to test a relay (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) and if it's not a relay i don't know where to watch further :/
SOrry for my english, it's not my native language (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I asked your question on another forum and I think you'd have better luck there.

I am thinking it will be the speed input wire into the back of the cluster or trip computer part. The only two parts of the computer that don't rely on this signal wire is the temp and DTE.
