    Trip LCD Display (DIS) gone blank

    Hi,

    All of a sudden my LCD on the instrument cluster has gone blank. Strange thing is though, is that it displays the "OK" in orange when I start the car and then goes blank.

    As if its just anything that is in red is blank.

    When i brought the car about 4 years ago, it was slightly faded towards the edges, but this hadn't got worse over time.

    Cheers,

    Sounds like it There's a button on the bottom of the wiper stalk which you've probably pressed, and which turns the DIS screen on and off. Try pressing it again

    Lol... Yep, I managed to switch it off. I pressed the left-right switch a few times and it didn't come on, Didn't realise that it's the reset switch that needs to be pressed.

    Cheers Guys.

    Ok, this has recently happened to mine but pressing the switch underneath doesn't sort it. Any ideas?

    Just thought I'd follow up. I fixed the problem by checking some fuses, they were all ok but after reseating 3 of them my screen came back. I think I reset 11 + 15 which both refered to the instrument cluster, and also reset one that covered the ECU. I don't know which one did it but I suspect it was the resetting of the ECU.

    Read my post just above. Do you know where the fuse box is? Open the driver door and pull off the panel on the side of the dash, then pull out the fuses I mentioned, wait a few secs then put them back in again. During the time I had the car this issue popped up about 3 or 4 times, easy fix though.
