P38 trip Computer

Hi all,
I have finally bought myself another Rangie after 2 years without. Yippee. I
have bought a '95 2.5 DSE P38. It has had a few problems but I am just about
getting to the bottom of them now. The one that has me stumped at the moment
is the trip mpg computer does not seem to work, no matter what I do with the
stalk. What I need to know is what controls it, i.e where does the stalk
connect too? Is there a separate unit or is it within some big box
somewhere?
The trip mile works and resets to zero but I can't get any of the other
functions to work. Any help and advice would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks,
Barno

The trip computer is controlled by the BeCM, but there isn't much you
can do with it - one short press of the lower button on the left stalk
will cycle it through the features, a long press will reset the MPG
calculations (and range etc).

It may not be enabled on some vehicles; I don't know if this is a
testbook enabled feature or something deeper.

I detest the new capitalism. "people are our greatest asset" hah!
Although I suppose if that means "so we depreciate them over 5 years
then replace", I guess they aren't lying.
