One of the needles in the Abart panel was reading incorrectly, so I used the zero function to reset it. As I recall, all 4 needles slammed back to zero, then I had to switch the ignition off and on, then all the needles were reading correctly.

Will an abarth LCD unit work correctly in a JTD, as i wouldn't mind doing that to mine ?

Just found an image I posted on the forum. It's "Value Reset" on the "Actuators" tab of the "Instrument Panel Visteon" section of MES.

As the Abarth instrument cluster is not designed for diesels, there's no glow plug warnng light (yellow coil) on it. Didn't bother me.... after you've had the JTD for a year, you know how long to wait for the glowplugs at various ambient and/or engine temperatures.

The Abarth panel shows varying oil pressures and oil temperatures on it's central multicolour display as 2 semi-circular bar graphs, so doesn't have a conventional oil pressure warning light. I tried several ways to hook the JTD oil pressure switch into it, but couldn't make it work. Ended up running a wire from the engine management ECU oil pressure switch output to a spare, red warning light on the cluster. The spare warning light has 120 written on it (speed limit for Saudi Arabian market). I opened the cluster and scratched the 120 off, so it just shows a plain red light while there's no oil pressure. Was tempted to mark it "OIL PRESS" with small Letraset.

Apart from the above, everything worked as normal.
