    Hi folks Have a mystery for someone to try and solve. Yesterday for some reason the vsc light came on, then my clock went back to one oclock.reset clock but when I turned off the ignition then on again the clock was at 1 oclock again. I had heard somewhere to try a reset by disconnecting the battery. This I did but to no avail. Now to make it worse the central locking does not work or my alarm. The car starts ok.Ps I had the brake pads and rear spring changed 10 days ago. Any help would be appreciated.

    Is It Right

    I converted my litres at fill up to gallons then divided my mileage covered by said gallons. i know its rough but cant think of another way.

    Is It Right

    Hi folks, filled car to the top which was£68. This gave me 255 miles before the fuel light came on.not having a trip computer, it equates to 22mpg. Is that right for a vvti. All miles done doing short commutes.
