    Angry S3 D.I.S just died

    HELP!

    Just filled up with petrol this morning and like to reset the trip and MPG on the computer. The last time I filled up the D.I.S screen went completely blank for a few seconds and then came back and worked as normal. Today however, it went blank and has no stayed blank.

    If i press the left stalk it still displays the miles until next service and completes the check with an "OK", but the screen then turns off again.

    Is there anything I can do to revive the display? I have heard getting D.I.S issues repaired can be costly

    Any advice greatfully received.

    Cheers,

    ICE

    there should be a button underneath the right stalk which switches the dis on and off..
    try that. I dont think its faulty if it initially powers up. happened to me a few times until i realised there was a switch for it.
    hope this resolves your problem.

    Thats the button I use to reset the MPG. Maybe the switch is faulty - I'll go try.

    Thanks,

    Panic over!

    Thanks s3shabs!!!! I didn't realise if you pressed it quickly it turned the DIS on and off and if you held it, it resets the MPG etc.

    Thanks again,
