Flashing Mileage Reading ?

Hi,

Can anyone offer any help on this problem ?

My 4x4 is now 14 months old with 9k on the clock and has had its 12 months service at 8k on the clock a couple of months ago.

On Friday last week the digital mileage readout on the dash was flasing continually from start up. I was assuming this was some "service" indicator that had not been cancelled at the first service, however on reading the handbook i can find nothing to indicate any "flashing mileage" signal ?

On stopping and re starting the car the problem disappeared, phoned Fiat and they said " not seen anything like this before, the Panda has an automatic re check system inbuilt in the dash software and checks for problems everytime car starts. If problem persists bring it in if not assume problem sorted" !

Anyone else had the same issues at all and if so what was the cause ?

Any information would be appreciated.

Cheers

Mmm, from previous threads it sounds a bit like a 'proxy alignment' might be required...

I have had it on my panda but it has since gone away and hasn't done it since. Unless your seriously worried I wouldn't get it looked at specifically just for that problem. If its going in then get someone to look at but I don't think its something to be worried about.
