Just curious as to whether you can unlock the fuel computer on 2008 touring? I saw on another post a guy selling the car and he listed the fuel computer being unlocked.

Here's how to unlock:

To Unlock Fuel Computer
Press and hold the CD and AM/FM buttons. After a few seconds you should see "DIS ON" in the display. Let go of the buttons. Restart the car.

To turn off Fuel Computer
Hold SAT and MEDIA buttons.

Fuel Computer Info
Consum Cur Mpg = current fuel economy
Consum Av Mpg = average fuel economy
Remng Mile = Approximate distance you can travel on remaining fuel (based on fuel economy).
AV mile/h = Average speed

*To reset the average mileage and average mph, just hold the set button until it clears.

HEre is the way I did it. Slightly different.

I had tried two other suggestions that have been posted elsewhere.

The one thing I noticed when I 1st did this is the wheel controls for the AUX MP3 player lost the ability to cycle through the tracks as before.

[/quote]they refreshed the 2008 with a midmodel car, not as a 09, but termed a 2008.5

I have a 2009 HB Sport. Will this work on it, seeing as it doesn't work on the 2008.5? If not is there anyway to unlock the computer on a 2009? Thanks
