miniman_7 is on a distinguished road
sounds like

a computer reset is needed.


either disconnect the battery, and leave for 5-10 minutes (it may be worth touching the disconnected lead against the other to clear any residual charge) Then reconnect.

Or

Pull out the computer unit from under the bonnet (it will be under the screwed-down black lid, usually the one nearest the inside of the car)
Leave a couple of minutes, then plug back in.

Hopefully this should clear the issue.



Good luck!!
