Tech, i thought it would be best to start a new topic on this since this is a new issue.


After sending the car to the specialist this afternoon, i noticed that the Turbo display lever on the panel, did not move from its original 12 oclock position. THe position remained at 12 oclock, as long as the Turbo-mode was not engaged.


When I floored the accelerator pedal, and (assuming) the Turbo mode got engaged and kicked-in, the Turbo display moved towards the right (3 oclock direction).


But it never came down back to the 9 oclock direction when I release the pedal. It got stuck at the 12 oclock position only.


What does it mean, Tech?
Can you advise?
Would it rip my wallet and cards?
Erg.

As always, really appreciate the help.

Did it used to go all the way down while running?I think that position is about normal for idle.Also remember these guages are not the best in the world.They are really not needed.It is just there for you to look at.There is turbo models of the 850 that don't have the guage.

Yup. Previously, it went all the way down to the 10 oclock position, at idle engine. As as I work the pedal, I used the turbo gauge to see how much power I was demanding.

It's a really nice feature on the 850, i thought. Heh.
Oh well. Don't worry - I'm back to my normal self again.


(Actually, wife decided not to kill me when I told her of the bill... )


Since it's not really a big deal, i think i'll leave the gauge as it is for now. Until I find a stronger reason to send it for checking.


Thanks, anyway Tech.

Yup, I sure will check with you or anyone available first before giving the car to the predators. Ahaks.
