1.9JTD trip computer

Hi all,

With regard to trip comp, mpg, have any of you noticed wheather after a reset yours is (1)either over optimistic in the mpg value ( starts high i.e 76mpg then settles down) or (2) starts low and then works up to a running value. Interested to know as I've noticed a change in behaviour in mine that may have been introduced by a flat battery.

Any one else had a flat batt at all?

After the RAC homestart got it going again the RAC bloke said it may run rough for a few miles whilst the engine management unit in effect re learns the actual engine responses!!!! Blimey.

True enough it ran like an early land rover for 15 miles or so then settled down and is very responsive. I may be imagining it but it actually seems 'crisper' in responding to the throttle.

Any Fiat tech heads got any clues?

Cheers John

Re: 1.9JTD trip computer

I think this is true. I think this goes for all modern Fiat engines. I have a Punto HGT and the same think happened to me, soon settled and run alot better.
