    It should be a walk in the park...

    You should be able to do it in an hour or so.

    Check and double check your wiring.... Also, make sure the existing wiring it in good order, and not slipped out the connector when you've removed the plug.

    ok mate im back been to garage as i had a fear my petrol gauge was stuck but its not. the range went up when i pjut a 10er in from 64 up to 108 then it went down to 104 within a mile. im assuming it just needs to settle itself down. the speed is more acurate and the speed limit works also although it is slightly out.

    the mpg moves between 7.5 and 10.8 so far b ut again im assuming it will go up and be more acurate when it settles down

    thanks for your help mate and im hoping its working how it should now
    your guide is spot on and easy to use thanks

    drew

    ps does the obove sound about right now

    That sounds like how it should be

    108mile, down to 104mile... Thats what mine would do, you'll find that happens everytime you fill up.

    As for the MPG, it's an average, so it'll take awhile for you to get a "true" reading.

    Best thing to do, is travel at 60mph, press Set on the OBC and take it easy for a few miles and it'll start to settle down quickly to what it should be. I'm not talking in a few miles, it'll take quite a few miles !

    And don't forget to push that 'Thanks' button

    Yes - Once it settles, you'll get a more accurate Range.

    Search around and there is something about calbrating them to match your engine. If the OBC was out of a 318 for instance it might expect more to the gallon that in yours.

    Range is based on what's in your tank and the driving style for the last couple of minutes, it's not an accurate prediction.

    99.9 MPG usually means one of the inputs is missing.
