    Why would you actually want to have that on your car, i believe the designers of cars usually fit a speedometers to tell you what speed you are doing,why the f*ck would you want your air con unit doing it as well, you wouldnt want your speedometer reading your car temp rather than the speed so why do the opposite,just my oppinion of course.:keule:

    Might be interesting to see how they do it? I suspect future problems with the computer though!

    The MK4 boys use it, but having such a samll LCD panel on the heater control I don't know how its possible. You have to push a series of buttons to make it work. Someone will be along soon that knows the sequence

    basicly, you push the recirculate and up buttons together, and it goes onto the code screen, then you can scroll through the codes using + and -, and choose to view a code by pressing recirc again.

    Its great for a few things, like a speed display in km when abroad (genuine speed too not speedo over reading speed)

    Its also good for monitoring genuine coolant temp, as the dash clock is an adjusted value to keep simple people happy!

    i cant believe the chancer is trying to sell that on ebay, scum!

    to put it back to normal just bash the same combo(iirc), or turn the ignition off.

    The digital speedo read out is kind of kool, but its in kph :-( Would be pretty kool if you could get it to display on the DIS, but i dont think you can.

    you can change the units from metric to imperial by holding the recirc button then pressing temp up, then when you use the diagnostic mode the MPH will read in miles per hour or so i believe
