    Two DIS Trip computers?

    hi Guys,

    I completed the mod to add the new DIS wiper stalk and new MF steering wheel to my car this weekend (A3 Tdi(170) 2007). Everything works fine, however i have a few questions;

    1.) Should the steering wheel function keys light up in the dark?

    2.) There are two trip computers and a MPH display options. Is this normal?


    thanks

    didnt you have the dual trip options & digital speedo using your old stalk? Isn't the newer stalk just a slightly different design for the intermitant wipe?

    As far as I know the buttons dont light up, would be nice though.

    aah, i just did the mod to change the wheel, and add the new wiper stalk with DIS. didnt have DIS stalk so couldnt navigate through menus, it only showed outside temp before hand.

    I changed the coding for the steering and instrument cluster using VAGCOM, however now alittle miffed at the two DIS computer bit and afraid i might have coded it wrong.

    What on earth could someone use two trip computers for?

    Yes the buttons on the wheel should light up at night & its normal for 2 trip menus, think about it logically & you'll understand why, its a good idea.

    DIS

    number 1 resets everytime the car is switch off so gives you mph, average speed etc for short journey

    number 2 data is stored so gives you data for longer journeys or when you manually reset it

    Number 2 is useful to know what MPG you get inbetween topups. as i only reset it when i top up!

    so your car was fitted with a highline cluster but not the stalk to control it? Thats odd.
