Re: digital spead readout

Don't know about the fords, but on my holden it tells me the ECT, volts,RPM,any DTC's, and some other stuff I can't remember. Digital speedo is only available via a TECH2, this then negates the speed alert function.

Re: digital spead readout

It gives you the speed in MPH or KPH digital tacho etc etc... just like the diagnostic mode on the E series falcons, doesnt do much as each time you turn the car off it turns off and have to do it again

Re: digital spead readout

they do somewhere, but this is a function that can be done yourself, hold the trip reset in for 5 secs when turning the car on

Re: digital spead readout

shows exact digital revs, charge, mph, kmh and other weird stuff
it's pretty cool actually to have the revs there...

Re: digital spead readout

It resets after you turn ur car off. It was a novelty to start with, but then pretty useless after a while.

It has begun - Why is my battery in the boot?

Re: digital spead readout

Pretty interesting, had a look at it yesterday when I was out, some of it was like "What the.." but other things I wish we always had, like digital fuel quantity.

As Resty said, novelty to start with.
