    Mileage correction recommendation

    If you need your new dash mileage corrected or a tech 2 diagnostic done try www.digi-cars.com or ring 07790 551883.
    He corrected my mileage for half the price of anywhere else.

    I live in Reading but he does travel.

    I always chuckle at "mileage correction"

    "Yeah, hello mileage correction, yeah, I was driving along, and all of a sudden my mileage went up by 20k, it was really weird. Can you come and correct it for me!"

    Cheers for the heads up, useful for when people change their clocks

    He charged me £45 and it took 5mins. I changed my head unit 'cos the original did'nt have a rev counter.
    The unit he uses is not a pc type but a handheld unit that plugs into the diag socket.

    it is £49 at vauxhall main dealer ,
    i have just had a new speedo this week ,
    and had it all set up at vauxhall not only do they set the correct mileage,
    but just as important they enter the vehicle tyre size
    to enable the speedo to read correctly (rolling radius),
    this is more of an isue if a speedo is taken from 1 car and put into another,
    odds are they dont have the same tyre size so the speedo
    doesnt read correctly ,
    bad news especialy with the good old speed cameras,
    they also set the dash for all extras ie
    front fogs
    traction control
    sports for auto box
    and whatever else your car has,
    all of this is stored in the chip on the rear of the speedo
    Not in the ecu ,
    Phil
