    OBC display has just gone tits up. Any ideas?

    My mpg and outside temp display has just disappeared completely. Was a little bit pixelated before (not too bad) but now it's just gone altogether.

    Does anyone know who can fix this?

    Thanks

    Quick press of the button on the underside of the righthand stalk will have it working again if you've turned it off accidentally

    Thanks!

    Idiot that I am, that's what I'd done!!! Panic over. I haven't got an owners manual or I probably could have looked that up. Never even thought of that as a cause til you guys said. Must have caught it when I reset the MPG to zero the other night after refuelling. Never done that before though.


    Thanks for everyone's help!

    And the upside with a free fix is that you have now got earmarked "mending money" to spend on mods
