Re: Flashing Mileage

Does it keep time? Check the fuse?

Re: Flashing Mileage

If its the actual numbers that flash then its a power fault,if its the background illumination to the LCD section then its a cluster fault.Should still be under 3rd year warranty if its a 52 plate?

Just bought the doblo it has no service history ( this was reflected in the price) would this effect the warranty.

Re: Flashing Mileage

Oh...........ask at nearest dealer if there is any history on it on computer,if not you have no chance sorry

Is it the numbers or background light that flashes,if its numbers theres a fuse out as this is fitted at PDI stage,think it does cig lighter aswell-does that work?

Re: Flashing Mileage

Hi There

Check your battery. My Doblo re-sets the clock, headlight height adjustment and trip computer if she's left lying for the weekend, usually. Sometimes not. The alarm also re-sets to engineer's mode as if it was just installed. I have been led to believe the battery is at fault - its only a 40AH unit, too small for a diesel...

Re: Flashing Mileage

Just a (dumb?) thought but is there a service light due on a doblo,or does display flash?
Anyone got a doblo to confirm this?

Re: Flashing Mileage

Checked Today mate and its is the numbers that are flashing not the background. Checked the cig lighter and that is working okay and all the fuses are fine. Will check my owners book to see if it refers to flashing dash when service due.

Re: Flashing Mileage

I've got a six month old Doblo that does a similar thing, sometimes the complete digital display flashes and sometimes just the clock numbers flash. Either way they flash in unison with the two dots in between the hour and minute figures i.e every second. If it happens try altering the clock with the + and - buttons and see if it corrects itself.The first time it happened the clock reset itself to 00:00, the second time it changed to 02:00. Both times it happened just after I had switched the ignition on. I'm taking it in for an oil service next month and I'll mention to them and let you know what's going on.

Re: Flashing Mileage

Mentioned it to the garage and they'd never had any reports of the fault. It only seems to happen if I turn they key before the gloplug heater light and the key recognition light on the display go out. If I wait untill it they do go out, (like your supposed to) then everything is ok.

Re: Flashing Mileage

Why is it necessary to wait for the key recognition light to go out?
