Hi I own a mk3 1996 gti and when the engine is on instead of the mileage being displayed it displays "CErr" any suggestions what it could be. Another problem I'm having is that every so often when I'm braking the car cuts out on me, starts back up straight away but does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
For the mileage display, it's probably just a service reminder. Does your mileage come up when you press the button once? Or try resetting by holding the button in for a few seconds. The cutting out could be time for a tune up, adjustment of your idle speed, new fuel filter, or leaking vacumm hoses. Those are the easiest places to start. Could also be low fuel pressure or emission system problems, but hopefully you won't have to go there. If check engine light isn't on, it probably isn't emissions.

Note: the Service Reminder Indicator displays 3 messages: OEL, IN 01, and IN 02. These display to alert the driver to follow the items listed under the manufacturer's service interval.
To reset the message displays, turn the ignition switch on. Press and hold the odometer reset button "A" located below the speedometer. Turn off the ignition while holding the button. "OEL" will display on the indicator. Press and hold the lower digital clock reset button "B" until five dashes appear in the display. If needed, press the odometer reset button until "IN 01" appears and then press the clock reset button until five dashes appear. If needed, press the odometer reset button until "IN 02" is displayed and then press the clock reset button until five dashes appear.
To exit reset mode, turn the ignition switch on and when "IN 01" appears, turn the ignition switch off.
I am not familiar with that model but most Toyotas reset like this.
Tune the key off. Pess and hold the odo/trip reset button while you turn the key to the run position (do not start the engine). The odometer should change to all dashes which will disappear one at a time then change to all zeros and then back to the mileage. Release the button as soon as the mileage is displayed.
Sometimes the trip A needs to be displayed before you turn off the key to start.
Your owners manual should have this info as well.
push trip odometer button so that the mileage is displayed. hold in trip odometer button, keep holding in while turning key on, keep holding until you see the dashes on the display count down and disappear. the oil change light is now reset.
Turn the ignition off Press and hold the milometer push button (the button for reset the miles mostly the right hand push button on the dash) Turn on the ignition (do not start the car!) Wait for the display countdown to reach 0 Release the milometer push button Turn the ignition off. Turn the ignition on and check that the correct mileage till the next service is displayed
while you have the odometer reading current total mileage turn the key on while holding down the black button that switches from trip odometer to total mileage and you will see dashes where the odometer numbers are displayed. hold down the button until all the dashes disappear. then the display will read zeros when complete
This may sound difficult, but it is really simple; the reset takes 30 seconds; here you go:
Get in the car.
Turn the key ON (do not start it)
Observe the odometer. Is it on ODO (total mileage driven?
If not, depress the reset stick by the speedometer from trip a or
trip b until ODO is shown, and the total mileage traveled is displayed.
Turn the key OFF
Press and HOLD the reset stick on the instrument panel (trip a/trip b button), and HOLD it until advised to release it.
Turn the key ON (do NOT start the engine)
Observe the odometer: You will see 5 dashes, 4 dashes, 3 dashes, 2 dashes, and the 1 dash, followed by 5 zeros. The total mileage you started with will be redisplayed.
You may now release the reset stick.
Start the engine, the maint light will be reset.
What procedure does: It adds 5,000 miles to your odometer, and the light will come back on in 5 K miles.

Observe the ODO display.

The original mileage that you observed should be redisplayed.
Release the trip reset button.
The proceedure is now complete.
