Hey guys,

Got a strange problem, done some searching and still got no answers....

Here goes: In my 88 DA LTD, i will drive around for 2 to 3 minutes usually then out of nowhere, the trip computer will flash a warning....

Now it's not oil pressure as that does its usual beeps then stops on startup occasionally, and the confusing thing is there's no warning light on the dash or anything.

I'm buggered, anyone got an idea what it could be?

Kind Regards,
Rob

it's bizarre. There's no warning light or anything, just trip computer beeping at me....

have you upgraded to the NC Trip Computer by chance?

kudos to chicho11.

turns out somebody has cut the line from the compressor to the SLS and taken the light out of the dash.

Unfortunately they've left the relay and plugs connected and so there was nothing but the beep.

Disconnected it all now and no warning light :)
