Gday, recently bought a 2001 AUII Forte ready for my Ps. Has a few XR6 bits and peices on it, including a Tickford dash cluster but no owners manual. It has two readings on the screen, one is DTE reading 425 and the other option which pops up when you press in the stalk reads 975.9. I'm assuming this is a odo that you can set, but I'm not exactly sure how to reset it, I've tried pressing in and holding the stalk but nothing happens and it can't be turned or pulled, so I'm curious as to what it is. I don't get a chance to drive it that much with since I'm still on my Ls for a few more days and my parents work and when I am driving I keep forgetting to keep an eye on it so I'm not sure if it's going up or not. Any help would be great

EDIT: After double checking to make sure I was posting in the right section I sitll f**k it up! Ah well, rite of passage for newbies I guess :P

DTE means distance to empty, its how many km's you can go till you run out of petrol

Yeah DTE is distance to empty, the other is the current trip, good for working out fuel mileage, to reset this number, just press the stalk to its displaying the 975.9 or whatever ou said then hold it in until it resets to 0.0
