slow to finish reading data on dashboard
#1
sorry.. hard to give this a title!

2.0 hdi 2004/5 blingo.

i was told when i first bought my blingo to wait for dashboard readout to show mileage, i.e. after oil level is show.

mine takes between 30 secs and a minute to do so.

i only ever had petrol citroens before so i took the mechanics advice.

1: should it be slow?
2: if no.. any idea why?

thanks.

There is no reason why you should wait unless he was trying to get you to wait for the glowplugs to complete their heating cycle .   It is not always required unless really cold weather

I find with our 03 2.0Hdi if I go straight to the start when I turn the key the starter turns slower. I always have the heater blower running and that runs slow then speeds up as well. It's only a few seconds but once the heater blower speeds up then the starter turns over faster as well. I just turn the switch to the first position while I fit my seat belt and all is well.
So where does this bit go then ?

thanks, that's a lot of minutes of my life i won't get back!

i get the glowplug idea but it was mid-may and blingos don't need glowplugs at start unless it's pretty brrrrrrr!

Interesting stuff! When I had problems starting this morning, I could have sworn that the starter turned easier / faster the second time. I'll leave it 30 seconds or so tomorrow before I turn the key fully and see what happens.

probably the wonderful / pain the a** system on blingos called eco mode that limits power use.

p.s. did you know, well on mk2's anyway, if the engine doesn't spin faster than a certain revs when starting, the ecu cuts fuel as it considers revs not enough to start the diesel engine? of course, it lets you keep spinning the engine (and cursing) as the battery drains!
