Odometer flashing constantly?
« on: November 15, 2015, 12:52:28 pm »
Hi all,

Random question, has anyone had this issue where the odometer/mileage counter flashes constantly? I've done just over 5k miles on my 15 plate competizione, it started just before I got to 5k miles and doesn't seem to stop.

I thought it might be related perhaps to a service soon,but the manual said I'd get a little spanner on my dash that I haven't had yet. I've had a quick look on the internet and it seems to be some kind of problem, people have had wiring clusters and all sorts replaced. Is this something I should worry about. Also there have been no warning or error lights at all since it owned it, brand new car with no modifications. Everything is factory apart from  a few cosmetic bits from the competizione pack.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys :)

    The flashing mileage is most likely indicating a CAN bus fault, need a proxy alignment, trip to dealer I'm afraid.  One of the nodes has gone offline or failed....

    Should be an easy fix though

    Thanks, I took it in today. Hopefully it's just a reset.

    I think its the blue&me unit because that seems to have stopped working. The guy I spoke to when I took it in said he'd seen an issue where the unit had burst into flames and melted. Apparently its behind the left rear wing, have to pull out the back seats and seatbelts to get at it.
