1.1.24. The onboard computer

The onboard computer gives out on the display of 6 types of information:

 – Air temperature outside;
 – Autonomy;
 – The current expense of fuel;
 – The average expense of fuel;
 – Average speed;
 – The passed way.

The multipurpose display


On the right part of the multipurpose display the information concerning use of the onboard computer is deduced.

Using the onboard computer

Enough short pressing the button located on the end of the lever of inclusion of a screen wiper. Each subsequent pressing will cause occurrence on the display of a following type of information.

To null computer indications, hold the button pressed more than three seconds.

If the accumulator was disconnected, do following operations:

 – Include ignition. 6 digital segments on the display and all symbols thus will light up.
 – Press once the button. If the computer works, on the display there will be a temperature of external air.

Temperature of external air

The temperature of external air appears on the display at ignition inclusion. The symbol blinking With means probability of an icing of glasses.


Allows to judge number of the kilometres, which else it is possible to pass with the fuel which has remained in a tank (pays off on the basis of the real expense of fuel in a current of last 10 minutes). When in a tank remains less than 4 litres of fuel, three digital segments light up only.
The prevention

When the index of level of fuel shows a minimum level, the onboard computer is automatically switched in a mode of indication of autonomy irrespective of the fact which the information was deduced on the display before.

The current expense of fuel

It is size which is defined in a current of last 2 seconds. The given function does not work at speed less than 20 km/hour. Limiting figure which can show the display – 30 l / of 100 km.

The average expense of fuel

It is defined as the relation of quantity of the spent fuel to the distance passed after last zeroing of indications of the onboard computer. Limiting figure which can show the display – 30 l / of 100 km.

Average speed

It is defined since the moment of last zeroing of indications of the computer and pays off by division of the passed way for the period of a trip, since the moment of inclusion of ignition.

The passed way

This distance passed from the moment of last zeroing of indications of the computer.

After zeroing of indications of the onboard computer the information on autonomy will not be deduced, while the car will not pass some distance.

If at movement on the display instead of figures horizontal strips light up, consult at station Peugeot.
