  • Computer freezing?????

    Since having my VXR for the last couple of weeks i have noticed that on a few occations it seems that my conputer locks itself. For example if it is telling my the instant consumption then i press the putton, then try to go up or down to see the other readouts it doesn't move from the instant consumption thing. If i leave it, sometimes it allows me to move it but sometimes it doesn't, it sorts itself out but it's verry annoying.

    Anyone else had this?

    Never had a problem with mine, would suggest getting it checked by a tech.

          yeah it's long way for me though, don't get any days off in the week either, might just have to take to one of the local dealers to check them out. I can live with the computer till the first service anyway.

            I have had this and there is a logical reason for it, but being that I am an old **** I cant for the life of me remember what it is at the moment. But as soon as I do I will post it up, I know it was something that I had done, I panicked like hell when it happened to me cause I was using the satnav at the time and desperately needed to know where I was going. So I dont think its a fault, to Jog my memory can you remember what you were doing at the time ?

              I don't know what causes it mate, it just freezes up sometimes and doesn't want to scroll up and down.

              Leave it for a bit and it's fine again.

                had a similar prob myself, i also had the computer telling me i had 30 miles worth of fuel left when the gauge said half a tank !!

                sorted itself out by the time i got it in2 dealers tho, felt a bit stupid trying to explain a fault that wasntthere anymore :?

                    It could be the `Scroll Wheel` on the steering wheel thats faulty !! or does it freeze when using the buttons on the centre consol ??

                      what do you mean the buttons on the centre console? I think it might be a faulty scroll wheel too, pesky thing.

                        You can scroll the menu using the buttons on the centre consol (above the heater hot/cold knob) the button that has 4 arrows......up/down/left/right.

                              Cheers for that...
