#1 of 31 2007 Azera trip computer zeros out for no reason
May 10, 2007 (12:33 pm)
Ever so often for no rhyme or reason my trip computer reverts to zero. It seems to happen after I start the car. The same thing happens with the MPG and AVE/MPH etc, but not as ofter as the trip odometer.
My dealer refuses to do anything because he can't make it happen in the shop. That's understandable because it only happens every few weeks. He claims he's never heard of it being a problem and I suspect he's lying because I know someone else that complains about it to him.
Does anyone here have the problem? I'd like to know.

While I don't have that problem, your comment above is so typical. My suggestion, you and the other individual need to start a paper trail and get a case number assigned.
#3 of 31 Happened once to me too!

I thought it was a fluke that I may have reset it but now that its been brought up here, I'd have to say there's a gremlin somewhere. It hasn't happened since the first time though but I don't drive the car that much only 1600 mostly highway miles on it since I picked it up at the end of Jan 07.

This also happened to me, but it was on a trip where I was letting the trip meter log the entire trip instead of just tanks of gas like I usually do.
Anyway, I noticed it had reset ( though I was monitoring FE so I didn't know exactly when ), but it seemed like it was close to the 1000 mile mark so I just assumed that the trip ODO did not go over 1000 miles. I haven't had the problem since, but never let it run up to 1000 miles, either.

Cobrazera, that's a thought, but I can't imagine why it would only go to 1000 miles, but I'll keep track. When mine zeros out if I'm monitoring something else I'll notice it because it switches to the odometer mode when it changes. I've also had the same thing happen with Average MPH and MPG, but not as often.
Did you ask your dealer about it?

If your car was the only one with this type of problem, it never the less is a problem that should be delt with by the company.
This response is similar to others reported by other Azera owners, especially the "clunk" issues.

Interestingly it happened to me for the first time this week. I thought it was an accident on my part but after reading the posts, I think not.
I will keep on eye on it.

Suggestion for everyone: READ YOUR OWNER's MANUAL to see how the trip computer is supposed to work.
Maybe the tripodometer is supposed to resent every 1,000 miles, like in my '05 Sonata. (At 1500 miles it will read 500 miles) However, I doubt that it would be designed to reset the MPG & Ave MPH every 1,000 miles. (My car doesn't have trip computer.
So many people on the Sonata & Azera sites have never had a trip computer before and have no idea of what it actually does. You should read the owners manual. Maybe there's a problem or not.

From the owner's manual:
"Total distance is reset to zero if the battery is disconnected."
"The meter's working range is from 0 to 999.9 miles."
I didn't know that! Haven't taken a long drive yet, either...

Hi. I have a 2006 model and the 'reset' has happened 2 times. I can only guess that it resets when the car is started from a power surge. But this is only a guess. It cannot be replicated as it is so infrequent. Not enough to scream about. It is the nature of all things digital. Gremlins. These are baby ones. Just have the incident logged into your service history.
