AUII XR computer modes

I've seen the VX Commodore trip computer mod, where you hold the MODE button and UP button while starting the car. Then pressing MODE several times brings "hidden" information such as instant fuel consumption, temperature of coolant and a whole lot of other data. Does the XR have a simlilar mode?

Thanks. Cam.

yes!
but its not in the trip computer its in the odemeter(?) so works on all EF/EL's and AU too I would think and other models?

hold down the trip reset buttom on odemeter with ignition off. then turn ignition on/engine off and press the button three times quick than hold it on the third time and dont let it off till the display flashes.
now you are in the information mode and this will stay on for quite a while (like 200kms) and then a few days later while driving my dispay/guages all droped and died for a second and then its back to normal mode.

for the information display..
First one is litres in fuel tank, second one is water temp, third one is tacho and speedo.... etc etc

i think i told ya how to get it to work. if I told ya wrong someone will set ya straight.

I tried it myself with no success.
I looked up the factory service manual for the AU under instruments and there is nothing about this hidden information. All it tells you how to reset the trip meter and how to get rid of that service spanner.

On my EF11 ex cop car if hold down the trip reset for about 20 seconds with ignition on you get to recalibrate the speedo,you can up or down on the speed reading till you get it spot on.handy for diff ratio swaps!Don't know about other readings you can get from it.

Tried this, worked first go for me. Seems to be a fair bit info available although I can't quite work out some of them. Found Oil Pressure, Voltage, Water Temp, Revs, Fuel level (basically the same stuff as the instruments) but some of the others I'm not sure of.

Does anyone have a proper Falcon workshop manual, not a Gregorys or Haynes, but the proper Ford ones. They would most likely have the some info about this "hidden" feature

Thanks

hi guys
in this set up on ef to el falcons there are several menus there is also a liters per 100kilometers and there are a heapof engineering numbers which mean nothing to the average guy there is also a instant liters per 100 kms its basically the trip computer built into your cluster, the trip computer you buy over the counter and the one that comes standard on high series is just a display unit all the info is in your cluster
