I'm outside Cambridge A14/A428 and can do it if you ever get across this way.

Hi Stonemason,

I donít know what area you are in but you just need a garage that has a decent diagnostic machine. My friend in Kingís Lynn has a SnapOn machine that can do proxi alignments so any garage with that equipment should be able to sort you out.

Unfortunately when we tried it on my Abarth 500 it didnít work and only came up with a fault code of U173387 convergence telematic module - missing message.

Does anyone know if this is the same thing as the Blue & Me module and where it is located? This car is my wifeís daily driver and the flashing odometer and lack of Bluetooth button function is a minor inconveniences compared to the dead battery if not driven for a few days 😩

Re: Blue and me not working, mileage flashing

Did you get this sorted?
My convergence unit ( blue and me module )is behind the left rear interior panel below the speaker, bolted in a cradle which is riveted to the
Inner rear wing.
Mine came up with the same fault code as yours could not find convergence unit.... fitted a new one.... same problem and now been told it could be a fault in the instrument cluster not being able to communicate with the convergence unit 😩

Stonemason! Did your new unit have the same part number as the one you took out?

Re: Blue and me not working, mileage flashing

Local dealer offering Panda but it has flashing mileage and no Bluetooth. He was trying to source a module from Italy but, for obvious reasons, has not had any luck. He has knocked some money off because of the problem. I'm not too worried about the Bluetooth connection and could probably live with the mileage flashing but does it also cause battery or other problems ? I don't want to buy it and then have to pay out for a new module from a main dealer. Is this worth a punt or would it be too much trouble ?

Re: Blue and me not working, mileage flashing

Secondly hand module from a scrap car your best bet
They arnt coded to the car so get one same part number then a proxi alligment to correct the flashing and you should be good to go

Re: Blue and me not working, mileage flashing

If the dealers isn’t willing to at least sort out the flashing mileage, what else is he neglecting.

I’m always dubious of dealers who will knock a few quid off quickly to make that sale rather than fix a problem.

Thank you Andy. I was having some doubts about this. It's a local dealer with a good reputation but he does seem very keen to move it on. I think that I may well be better off looking for another one.
