The best cabrio is a motorbike


« on: June 29, 2005, 10:52:22 am »

My '97 JE0A Espace 2.0 has no trip computer: the only thing the button on the right stalk does is reset the day trip counter.

I suspect (from browsing the internet for this subject) that the trip computer is there, but factory disabled.

Anybody any idea on how to enable it?

Hi, Just boutght a 99 Alize 2.0-16v and this doesnt have it in either....

However, Ive been looking around, the dash and control box is listed as the same part number as higher models with the trip computer.  I aquired a copy of Renault's Dialsys from the bay (Ranaults service manuals), this shows how to program the dash when installing it.  There is an option for turning the trip computer on or off, along with settings for miles / km, oil level display delay and a load of other things.

The only downside is that you need the correct computer to plug into the espace to do this...  so im off to find a friendly dealer, or a Gunson/Krypton computer equivilent!!

The Dialsys manuals are well worth a few quid, basically everythings explained to the dumest of mechanics so its pretty straight forward to follow.

Regards, Matt

Hi Matt,

do you happen to have any scans about the programming from the Dialsys? I have exactly the same issue with my -02 JE Expression. I asked from a local dealer about the programming and according to them, it ts doable if the computer is present. They had experieced few cases where there was no computer present.

Hi,

Looked for this again last night, but do you think i can find he page (the softwares not written that well)... however Ive pulled the pdf's relating to the dash, which is where i think I saw it, ill try and attach the pdf's here and a pic from the software with the titles of them, plus ill keep looking at home and see if i can come across it again.

There is an espace dash without the computer but its a very basic dash with no radio an no electronic warning computer display thingy.  

My guess from doing similar things to other cars is that the dash and wiring are there, the only thing that may be missing is a fuel flow meter which you may have to rip out of a scrap car to get the fuel data to work.  

PS the software is called Diologys not dialsys... hey, I was close!

Cheers,
M

Well you could always email them to me. The forum if ok for upload, but you canot be sure the attachments will survive, as the attachment-directory is automatically kept below a certain size by the software.


However, I have created a vault for such usefuil stuff :

   http://www.matrasport.dk/vault

When I come across data like your pdf's, I'll copy them to the vault, - but even better would be if you posted therm ,a dn dropped me an email, so I could salvage the files to the vault, for general use.

So what was the outcome of this, Can you enable the trip computer ? I've got a diesel Grand RXE and we don't get either the trip or rev's that the equivelant petrol model has.  Sad
