    Guys,

    Went out for a random drive the other day and after about 2 hours the DIS started flashing, it was set to miles left in tank, yet when I looked it was on elapsed time and flashing.

    I'm going to assume they all do this after 2 hours of driving, is this the case? If not, I take it the previous owner has altered it somehow to do this.

    Any thoughts / input appreciated.

    That's a nice friendly reminder for you to take a break. Happens every 2hrs (managed to get mine flashing 6 hours once). Playing with any of the DIS buttons should get your original screen back.

    Yeh it is telling you that you have been driving for 2 hours and need a rest. Pressing the reset button once will hide it. Even if you stopped within 2 hours and it still went off, this is because the ignition needs to be left off for at least 15 minutes for it to reset.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    I assumed as much and when it started flashing I just tapped the up / cycle button and it was as normal.
