I took the clock/ temp/ date display out to replace and paint the bulbs red so it appers when its on to be red that bits fine! But now when i turn the light on and off it resets everything. But the funny thing is where it normaly has the date it some times has the letter "F" on the left and a number on the right. And some times it tell's me my KMH what going on lol! The wires seem ok and it is plugged in right maybe there is a loose connection somewhere. Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanx Garnz

how did you remove the clock? i want to do the same bulb tint, but blue. Do i need to take off the whole dash or can i just somehow unclip the clock? did you actually get the lcd digits to change colour too? my display sometimes gives me letters. but i think its because the lcd digits are faulty.

Well first of all, The air flow controls part of the dash is proving hard to remove, I have the first air vent pushed down and have access to that, but the second one only pushes back on one side and seems stuck fast on the other site so it is going back inwards lopsided.

Where do i get this mythical Haynes manual?

Well to get it out u need to move the centere air vents down u have to push and pull down as iff ya gonna snap em but they do go.When youve done that u have to remove 4 screws to behind each vent look inside @ the top left and right u should see em. Be very careful not to drop the screws get a magnet @ the ready. When thats done u lift the clock surround up and pull out the connector block @ the back. There u can take the bulbs out. I undid to other screws holding the display to the plastic surround out so i was just left wid the display. I used red bulb paint. Now the whole display is red.


I will have a look @ the ribbon cableits pissing me off it keeps reseting

hi ya all.
i've changed the color of my mfd with leds. but after connecting and disconnecting the mfd from the connector (to turn the leds around) and it started acting strange: sometimes the temp said --.- sometimes the date came on and off. the reason was that the connector itself on the mfd was loosen. the solution was to open the mfd, but carefully not to damage the ribbon cable and re-solder the connector from the inside. after that put the mfd together, connect it and carefully put it in its place on the dash
greets!

The mfd units are very easy to wreck as anyone on here till testify i ruined mine by trying to change the original bulbs for led ones when i put it back in everything worked but it didnt turn off . I ended up getting a 2nd hang one for 30 notes, not bad considering a new one from vaux is 150-200

The letter F proberbly means fault and the kmh display could mean maybe the buttons are stuck as if you press them both if you get the kmh speed briefly.
