My friend did this once in his EF GLi. I think what you have to do is push the reset button for the trip meter(the one on the instrument cluster) hold it for a short period and then turn the ignition on. Can't remeber exactly and I don't know if the AU's where the same as EF. Give it a go and let the rest of us know.

Cheers

You mean this works on a humble GLi? I thought the digital display was just an odometer. If anyone knows whether it can be done then please do tell!

I'm guessing all these goodies of digital speedo and tacho are only on cars that have the trip computer.

Got my reply back rom ford today... Not very helpfull at all
Goes a little like this

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your e-mail regarding your Ford EF Falcon.

At this stage we do not have any official information regarding the odometer
or climate control, and no information is available at this point in time.

Please check the relevant media channels for any future launch details.
Alternatively, please visit our website at www.ford.com.au for future
updates.

Should you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Kylie Dick

I heard a rumour going around that you can get extra
information of the odometer on EF -> falcons, such as digital speed and
other stuff. Can you please verify this and explain how to activate it?

Also I heard that you can get extra information of the
climate control such as engine temp, cabin temp etc etc. Is this true and
if so how do i get it to work.

Cheers
Matt

Yeah spill the beans Botch.

If it does work i bet that people who don't have the trip computer like AusXH and myself won't be able to see any additional info.

As far as i know the digital display on the intrument cluster shows trip meter, odometer and a funky service spanner.

Botch, can you find any hidden features on my retro fitted futura dash clock. :s3 :s3

Actually that brings up an interesting question, what triggers the service spanner?

I must admit I have never seen mine come up!

It triggers every 10k, spanner lights up meaning it's due for a service.
