Transit trip computer retrofit no outside temperature display
« on: December 22, 2018, 12:41:45 pm »
I've fitted the upgraded clocks to my van and fitted the stalk so now have the trip computer with MPG, average speed tell etc but the outside air display just shows ---.-- . I fitted a Mondeo outside temperature sensor and found the plug for it already in place in the engine bay but still no joy. Anyone else done this or know why it's not working?

You've done it all correctly, just need to enable it within software now. The plug is normally taped to the loom with a dummy plug fitted and if its there (as in your case) then its prewired all the way back to the BCM.

You'll need IDS or ForScan to make the change, which is in engineering mode level 2. Turn on "Trip Computer" and set "Cluster Level" to Level 2 and then it'll start giving you the temperature and the snowflake warning when it gets cold out :)

So clever, what great advice
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
