Hello,

Mileage flashing, no Blue&Me.

Following other posts, disconnected negative battery terminal for 30mins. Still have problem. With bonnet lifted, could hear what sounded like either an alarm or just a high pitched sound from area under wipers, which stopped when ignition off.

Car does not get used much. Not used from mid-December '20 to around mid Feb. Was working ok in December.

Any advice? Thanks...

Followed these instructions from a 500 section post:

"1> Car is Off
2> Turn Key Accessory Mode but dont start the Car
3> Put the Hazard Lights on and then turn them off
4> Turn Key to Off Position
5> Take Key Out
6> Put Key Back in and ODO Mileage will stop flashing."

Unfortunately, now car won't start.

Maybe the B&M issue was linked to the state of the battery.

Car not used much but I did about 1hr a couple of weeks ago and all was well...Maybe time for a new battery - car is 2010 plate may be original still...

Have checked out 500 section re B&M failing - tried some of the proposed fixes, no luck.

Changed battery to a Yuasa 5012.

Took car to garage and they did a proxy alignment. They told me the B&M worked for 5 minutes then stopped, and suggested the unit needed replacing. I'd have thought that if it worked at all it was not dead?

I'll look into getting a new unit, but if it's too much then too bad. It was good when it was working.

Any suggestions welcome...

Yes - B&M can be useful as a hands-free device.

Annoying that it has failed - I like to have a fully functioning vehicle..!

Recently took to car to garage, who made some diagnostics but couldn't determine fault. They advised taking it to a Fiat dealer.

Phone Fiat dealer - cost would be £130 to find any faults.

Is it worth trying to find fault with Multiecuscan software (https://www.multiecuscan.net/) instead?

I used to love Blue * Me and used it a lot. I just unplugged mine but still have flashing mileage.

Fiat, in the UK, quoted me just over £500 to supply and fit B&M module!!!!!!
