I was reading the tech docco on swapping the instrument clusters and it says about police mode
Quote:
Police Mode Enabled - Unlike previous falcon models (EF-AU), there is no dedicated Police Cluster.
The Police mode can be enabled on XT, Futura, and XR instrument clusters, but in doing so, some features and display information will be disabled, and other information will get shuffled around to make room for the Digital Speedo Information.
Firstly, Tripmeter B is disabled when Police Mode is enabled. (Tripmeter A is moved from the speedometer LCD panel to the Tacho LCD Panel)
Only the Distance to Empty Trip Computer function is made available in the Tacho LCD panel when in Police Mode (Average fuel consumption, instant fuel consumption and trip time will be unavailable)
The Odometer reset button is used to scroll between the Distance to Empty and the Tripmeter A Display in the Tacho Display area.
The Speedo LCD panel will display "P" for Police mode, and the digital speed of the vehicle.
The Trip Computer Button now functions as a Digital Speedo Freeze Button. Depressing this button whilst driving will freeze the digital speed reading. Holding this button down for a period of 3 seconds will restore the digital speed readings.


i am just wondering how to program this. I have a BF Futura wagon.

You'll need an OBD2 scanner tool, and a laptop/PC you can run hyperterminal (or some sort of serial console app) on.

The detailed instructions are in this post...
