    Had a sudden reset of my dash while driving and the two needles (speed and kw) were totally wrong afterwards...

    Here is how you do the reset:

    go into service mode screen
    go to Controls
    hit IP NEEDLES RESET (maybe repeat if the two needles are still not in correct place)

    both needles will be set to default (0 km and totally left for kW)

    I've had the same thing happen to my instrument panel a few times. It seemed to be triggered by hard acceleration but not easily repeatable. The IP NEEDLES RESET is a quick way to fix it, and can be done while driving (by a passenger of course).

    I give my Roadster quit a few hard rides in the week and never experienced that reset before... guess I've just been lucky until now ;)

    Thanks
    Always been wondering what the meaning was "reset IP needles"
    Now we know.
