    Hot start problem is common, new starter needed.

    Welcome to the ASN mate.

    There are two trip computers, number 1 resets an hour or so after switch off, number 2 only resets when you manually reset it, they're cycled using the button under the wiper stalk. Look for the little symbol in the corner of the DIS to distinguish between the two & it's always best to Read The Manual for details.
