Hey guys,
The trip computer in my EAII Ghia is playing up. Whenever I start the car, it beeps at me and says I have 0km of petrol left. The battery had gone flat beforehand, so I thought maybe I have to reset it somehow?? Oh and I tried the reset button :P lol

So is it stuffed or an easy fix? All the other functions on the trip still work.

Cheers!

My EL trip computer does that when the fuel is low (say 1/4 full) when parked on a slope, it usually sorts itself out overnight once its parked on flat ground.
