Had a problem with the digital speedo, mileage, etc. Some digits not showing.

So they (Nissan) did a restart or something - and would you believe it - a very noticeable improvement in performance.

Just like a dyno tune in the old days.

Dunno what they did, but gunna get it done regular now!

Anybody got any clues?

Yeah, it's probably an ECU reset as they do that at major serivces as well. It resets stuff like a/f ratio among other things ... which might have been a bit lean if you drive conservatively.

i didnt realise that lol :doh:

so when they say ignition ON, they mean the first turn when the dash lights come on??

what about the other resets they mention, accelerator pedal position, idle valve etc, do u guys do those as well?

An ECU reset does wonders, especially if you've been babying the car (the ECU figures out you're a ***** and runs the car on an "economy" map).

I'll post more in my ongoing Unichip issues.

I've been here all along Shizzle!

Just can't be shagged posting that much as some of the topics just don't interest me.

I bought a Nisshit knowing it is a Nisshit and not expecting it to be a Lambo!

As always

It will only last if you floor it at every traffic light :)

I think I'm going to print out the procedure again and join the ECU reset club, I don't want to be left behind.

What's the logic behind a car that deliberately detunes itself if you don't flog it?

Makes more sense for the bloody thing to detune IF YOU FLOG IT in the interest of self preservation. ? ? ? ? ?

It's all arse-up to me!

You need second person to listen to it with hood open and ear next to the throttle body, or you could run :)
