Computer won't keep up with Trip???
hey guys, ive jjust bought an 02 2.4 jtd 156, and its great too.
reportedly after the first cold spells of this year, the battery was nearly on its last legs, but after a charge, has continued to start and run the car ok.
this is what i'm told from the previous owner...
and that ever since this battery issue the on board computer has been significantly "behind" the odometer or trip computer???
in simple terms, if my trip on the speedo tells me i have travelled 10 miles, the on board computer only says 5, and as such the whole mpg etc is thrown out the window too.
Is it likely to have been a battery issue? and is it likely, as according to the previous owner, it is possible to now "cure" the issue with a new battery?
your input will be interesting i'm sure
thanks in anticipation
