Hi gang,

Hopefully someone can help.

The cluster in my BA seems to be in some sort of special mode where the side trip button and the other one control the cluster backlighting. Anyone know how i get out of and into this mode?

Cheers in advance

High series clusters use those two buttons to adjust the illumination. (trip computer functionality is in the ICC)

Low series clusters use them for the trip computer.

Sounds like it's confused to what type of cluster it should be. I don't think they can be changed. I know via the OBD2 port the high and low clusters talk rather differently.

And to top it off, you hit the report button.

If you have a problem, keep it behind the scenes or contact one of the mods.

The trip computer stuff on high series cars is done on the colour screen ICC. The cluster doesn't do it.

The right most buttom (and little one) are for the trip computer (and reset).

Thanks for the help mate !!!

Looks like they have put a high series cluster in a low series car...hence why i cant get the trip info anymore.
