147 Ducati Corse

Mileage flachig = ECU issues I believe..
Mine does it occasionally but buggers off if i re start the car. Also got friends with itallian cars that have same kinds of issues.. I may try using the cruise when its flashing next, just to see what happens!

Have you plugged in the CAN connection on the back of the head unit - thats what this issue is, especially if you fitted teh unit without disconnecting the battery.

Cruise issue is usually the switch on the clutch pedal.

Cruise not working.

Equally, the brake light switch can cause cruise problems too. The two switches are down by brake/clutch pedals. Only slightly fiddly to change. If the brake lights are intermittant, the cruise may be too.
