Re: Upper Mileage Display, Temperature Display
I turned the sorry thing off the day I bought the truck and it hasn't been on since. IMHO, those displays are just a marketing thingy for the Lariats that some V-P at Ford thought up...and a way to bump the price and their profits cause we don't have a choice...you gotta' take the readout with the Lariat. You certainly can't trust the mileage calculations, which makes me doubt the other data readouts. I bought a stick-on compass at Wal-Mart for $2. I have a combo Anemometer / Thermometer / Hygrometer I carry in case I need to know the wind speed or if it's cold enough to freeze my old butt.
I'm just stuck in mechanical-land...wish I had my old '97 PSD back.
Well Ed, I beg to differ, mine in usually within 2 to 5 tenths of what a good old fashioned calculator tells me for miles to gallon, and the temp thingy is just a nicety. However, being anal-retentive as alot of us are, if I have something, I like it to work.... so, by the way if yours is unhooked, wanna sell it for 50 bucks?!!!!
That would be GREAT!!
