Just had 35 miles per hour display on the dash without a code. Car runs fine, everytime I go over 33 miles per hour I get a warning beep. Transmission was overhauled 100 miles ago. I just replaced the head gasket last week. New Rad and Thermastat fitted. This weekend I was going to change oils in the transfer box and diffs. Quick check of threads couldn't find any reference to 35 miles per hour signal. Any help would be appreciated.

Just an addition to the 35 mile per hour signal, the car was converted to coils before I bought it and had run fine before the head gssket problem. What is done to the electrics on a air to coil conversion perhaps Iam thinking it has come undone ?.
Any ideas thanks Chris.

depends on the conversion, there's either a "magic box" that mimics the EAS so the ECU thinks all is well, or there are 2 bits of wire on the ECU connector to do essentially the same thing. Some older kits had directions to cut/splice the wires near the BECM instead of using jumpers.

I believe there is a module plugged into the BECM that overrides the EAS, I would check there... someone that has done the conversion will be able to chime in and help you :)

Make sure you (or someone) haven't inadvertently set the "max speed". This done via the buttons on the left control arm. Info should be in you owners manual. If this is set it will beep if you excede the speed set.

Ask me how I know `)

Could this be as simple as the speed limit warning feature being set at 35 mph??

Ohhh umm haven't done that one yet!!!

But one day I came out to mine one morning turned the ignition on and everything was dead no lights on dash or clicking when trying to start!!

Spent a hour with volt meter checking battery out put etc.. Then I rang a mate who has had Rangys for 15 yrs and whilst going through some stuff to check he said "You haven't left the lights on or anything stupid like that!!" there was just silence from my end as I opened the door then the words "Oh **** I'm a prat"!!!!

I had heard the beep when I got out the evening before thinking it was on the headlight delay. So now I always double check...

Has the Op responded and confirmed that it was the Speed Warning?

I ask as I seem to remember mine only worked in multiples of 10mph...

That might be a ROW setting. Here in the states all moron minder systems used to have to be able to be set for the dreaded double nickle (55MPH) federal max that we used to have. One Buick I drove had 10MPH increments, but started at 35MPH to comply.

You fear the worst because it typically is the worst.

Plus the 35mph deal is eerily similar to 35mph MAX that you'd get during a hard fault.

Now go read your manual. There will be a test on Monday.
