Digital Tacho

hey i read previous post and there seems to be a way of changing the odometer in the EL to make it a rev counter etc. I got the instructions for it which is:

1. Turn the key on accessories
2. Press and hold the odometer reset button and turn ignition on.
3. Press the odometer reset 3 times, then hold until fatsen seatbelt light goes off then release the button.
4. Display will go blank for about 4-5secs (wait don't press anything)
5. Display should start flashing Ford (still wait and don't press anything)
6. Then it goes into the mode, i found it started on mode 1.
7. Cycle through the 20 modes by pressing the odoreset button.
8. Press and hold button to return to normal mode.

i did this and i cant get it to work! is accessories the first notch or second notch when you turn the key? Step two is goes to hold the odemeter, but when you turn on the ignition do you let go as your turning on the ignition, before or after? and also press the reset button three times then hold? so do you hold the third press or do you do a forth press?

thanks for you help, confused member:(

try this:

1. Hold reset button in.
2. Turn ignition to on (it doesn't matter if you start the car now or later. it's easier to start it later)
3. Let reset button out.
4. Press three times holding in on the 3rd press until seatbelt light goes out.
5. Let reset button out.
6. Display will go blank

You don't have to wait till it flashes ford, just press the button to change to mode 1 again for mode 2 etc etc..

Hope that clears it up for you :s5

Laminge,
It displays where the Odometer and trip meters are. Unfortunately no ones got it to work for the AU's. Bet there is a way though.
