Question Flashing Mileage Indicator

Had this a couple of times on my Stilo Abarth 03 Reg. Start engine and the mileage indicator is flashing. Car runs ok and it goes away once you restart.

Can't find this "feature" in the hand book so wondered if anyone knew what it meant?

Re: Flashing Mileage Indicator

Have a look at this thread [one of a few ]

https://www.fiatforum.com/showthread...ashing+mileage

Jetweed seems to imply it is linked to an imminent service or not

More likely 'or not'... isn't a message displayed saying something like 'Service Due'?

Yes, and with the Nav+ you get the number of days/mileage to go before service BUT maybe the flashing forewarns of an imminent service interval - the next person to get it, please check.....

Re: Flashing Mileage Indicator

Stu, has the flashing odometer thing happened to you again since last year? Or was it only the one time?

Now you mention it, I am sure it happened again - just before my 36k mile service - at the time, I just dismissed it.

My service is due, initially you get "Service due" and a number of days, or if you get to the service interval before 365days it says "service due" and the milage to service.

Re: Flashing Mileage Indicator

I got the flashing mileometer thingy when I disconnected the parking sensor control box then (accidentally I might add) started the car.

Perhaps it indicates a CAN line drop-out?

Re: Flashing Mileage Indicator

Sorry Stu I did do a search but it didn't pick up the thread you linked to!

My car has never had the service indicator reset from new. Long story. Guy sold it to Fords of Winsford before 1st service. They did the service when I bought it, now have to have 6 month oil change done by local independant Fiat garage (for RAC Warranty) who is getting software to reset the service indicator.

As everyone says it doesn't seem to do anything. Just part of the "Unique" Fiat owning experience!
