Hmm, no.. all the data required to calculate DTE/Consumption is from that blue data wire... nothing goes to the ECU, not since ED anyway.

thanx people all gd now it was a bad connection, and i also discovered u have 2 go 4 a drive so that they can begin to function if theyve been disconnected. but im still puzzled about the green and yellow wire which goes into the demister switch
