sweet..thanks guys. might ring holden and get it done. Ill post what they charge for it!
I know this is an old thread, but does anyone know more about the instantanous fuel usage feature?
It says its litres used per hour at idle, but does this convert to litres per 100 km when in motion.
Just curious thats all.
no it doesnt. it just stays at litres/hr
well that sucks doesn't it.
I guess ill have drive around at 100km/h everywhere for it to make sense or drive at 50km/h and double the figure!
hey when i did that hidden trick it came up with a strange message once cycling thru it said TOO NU, whats all that about? and another screen says B V 5.0 ?
Yes with the instantanous fuel use it is only in litres per hour while idling as soon as you get moving it switches to litres per 100klm. Contrary to others :thumbsup:
:supersad: :supersad: :supersad: :supersad:
Thats not good when i have mine on LTR per hour/100klms and i holdy foot flat until it changes into second (AUTO) it hits 99.9L
Hey, Just to comfirm a few things, To Get This "hidden menu up" push and hold the menu and the up button then either put the ignition to on, or start the car.
I Contacted this guy i know that works for holden, and i asked him about it, and you can have anything you want displayed, They do use a very great bit of machine "The Tech2" Which can modifie almost anything in the ECU, So when ya next check out in the menu this is what you will see.
V---5.0 - Push up, V-U-2.5 - Push down V--D1.6
F18.5L - Believe this is how much the car uses per 100Kms on avarage,
T 8oC - Temp, Very cold in my garage
Spd - This Is Your Digital Speedo
P-Off - This isnt "police mode" this is weather your parkers are on or off.
Now All this was done with the car off and the ignition on.
When i was talking to my mate, he said that its not suppose to be talked about as holden has designed this for the "police" in unmarked cars, can follow someone and read their digital speedo. Thats the only reason why its made. :cops:
To have the digital speedo up and running automaticly everytime you start the car, should cost no more then $20. If its more then $20 There ripping you off.
I Also have a Vt diag usb cable forsale if anyones intrested. Cheers
My gf is a tart, seriously she up forsale anyone intrested. starting at .50c. Now she giving me the evil eye! Now she thinks i wont post this, well whoops
That's really great info.
There was no "Great research" in his post. Everything from that post has already been covered in this thread.
Infact the display "F18.5L" is not how much the car uses per 100Kms on avarage, its the litres of fuel remaning in the tank.
No no thats how much fuel i go through, per 100km , the other one is for how much is left in the tank. Believe me i go through a lot of fuel
I Think The other guy was talking about mi GF, anyway.. lol
hi all this thread still doesnt solve the problem of T-00 all the way through to t-XX (cant remamber the last number). in some of the t's there are letters in them as you go through i put it on T-17 and drove around nuthing happenend . our fight for information which is right-fully ours continues.
p.s i would totally understand if we where talking about a playstaion and the techs didnt want to tell us how to fix it but these cars cost anywhere up to and including 80K !! Man its the least they could do
"Hidden Functions" in the VT - VX Dash
here is the descriptions for all the displays in diagnostic mode in the dash.
its not rocket science guys its to help diagnose a problem with the dash.
Its no secret & a full description is in the workshop manual, it also has nothing to do with a secret police thing ok so stop being paranoid.
I cut and pasted this from a post in may, hope it helps

DIGITAL SPEEDO???? HOW!!! oooo i want it so bad! Would i be able to get it in the calais?? Mine has the three screen display so im guessing i would see other things too? but then how would i get back to my normal options (odo, fuel usage, ks left till empty blah blah) Argh.. i want that digital speedo thingy! *goes to try* So its mode and up? hmmm
wooo!! I did it! how cool!! I always wanted a digital speedo... Umm... is it normal for the last function to make a beep sound, for all the lights to go on and for all the needles to go up? Coz it kind of freaked me out. This is aweesommeee
yes it is normal. it is just a test mode
hey everyone...you know the function where it is supposed to test all the globes and move the speedo up and all that....um what does it mean if it doesnt do it? lol im puzzled as to why mine isnt??
