Subject: 2003 9-3 Vector: DTE problem


Hi I bought a UK-spec 1.8t 9-3 Vector a couple of months ago. Everything's been fine, except for one annoying problem that's just appeared in the last couple of weeks. The SID has a "DTE" (Distance To Empty) function, which displays the range of the car based on the amount of fuel left in the tank and the average fuel consumption. Initially this gave accurate readings; however recently it seems to be reading about 25% of what it should be - e.g. with a full tank and normal driving, it's saying DTE is 120 miles when it should be more like 500 miles. The average fuel consumption figure is around 35 mpg, which seems right, and the fuel gague seems accurate. It's just the DTE that's somehow messed up. Any suggestions? Glenn.
