Information Display

Information Display

The information display consists of three segments. The upper segment displays current fuel mileage, the second segment displays the odometer, average fuel mileage, range (estimated distance), engine oil life, and the lower segment displays the trip meter, and maintenance item code(s).

To switch the display, press and release the select/reset knob repeatedly. When you turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position the last selection is displayed.

TripMeter

This meter shows the number of miles (U.S.) or kilometers (Canada) driven since you last reset it.

There are two trip meters: Trip A and Trip B. Switch between these displays by pressing the select/reset knob repeatedly.

Each trip meter works independently, so you can keep track of two different distances.

When you turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position, the last selection is displayed.

To reset a trip meter, display it, and then press and hold the select/reset knob until the number resets to ‘‘0.0’’.

Instant Fuel Economy

This display shows the instant fuel economy you are getting.

This display shows the instant fuel economy you are getting.

It shows the number of mpg (U.S.) or l/100 km (Canada).

Average Fuel Economy

When either of the trip meters (trip A or B) is displayed, your vehicle’s average fuel economy since you last reset that tripmeter can be shown on the information display (mpg on U.S. models and l/100 km on Canadian models). This number is updated once per 10 seconds. To see the average fuel economy, press and release the select/reset knob repeatedly.

When you reset a trip meter, the average fuel economy for that trip meter also resets.

Range (Estimated Distance)

This display shows the estimated distance you can travel on the fuel remaining in the tank.

This distance is estimated from the fuel economy you have achieved over the last few miles (kilometers), so it will vary with changes in speed, traffic condition, etc.

Odometer

The odometer shows the total distance your vehicle has been driven. It measures miles in U.S.

models and kilometers in Canadian models. It is illegal under U.S.

federal law and Canadian provincial/ territorial regulations to disconnect, reset, or alter the odometer with the intent to change the number of miles or kilometers indicated.

Fuel Gauge

This shows how much fuel you have.

It may show slightly more or less than the actual amount.

Avoid driving with an extremely low f uel level. Running out of f uel could

Avoid driving with an extremely low f uel level. Running out of f uel could cause the engine to misf ire, damaging the catalytic converter.

Temperature Gauge

This shows the temperature of the engine’s coolant. During normal operation, the reading should be in the middle of the gauge. In severe driving conditions, such as very hot weather or a long period of uphill driving, the reading may reach near the red mark. If it reaches the red (Hot) mark, pull safely to the side of the road. See page for instructions and precautions on checking the engine’s cooling system.

Outside Temperature Indicator

If equipped

If equipped

This indicator displays the outside temperature in Fahrenheit (U.S.

models) or Celsius (Canadian models).

The temperature sensor is in the front bumper. Therefore, the temperature reading can be affected by heat reflection from the road surface, engine heat, and the exhaust from surrounding traffic.

This can cause an incorrect temperature reading when your speed is under 19 mph (30 km/h).

The sensor delays the display update until it reaches the correct outside temperature. This may take several minutes.

If the outside temperature is incorrectly displayed, you can adjust it up to +/-5°F in U.S. models (+/- 3°C in Canadian models) warmer or cooler.

NOTE: The temperature must be stabilized before doing this procedure.

To adjust the outside temperature display, press and hold the select/ reset knob

To adjust the outside temperature display, press and hold the select/ reset knob for 10 seconds. The display changes as shown above.

Select the outside temperature indicator by turning the select/reset knob. The display begins to blink.

Push the same knob to enter this setting, then turn it to adjust the temperature. The following sequence will appear for each: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0 (U.S.) or 0, 1, 2, 3, -3, -2, -1, 0 (Canada).

When it reaches the desired value, push the select/reset knob to enter the setting. You should see the new outside temperature displayed.

In certain weather conditions, temperature readings near freezing (32°F, 0°C) could mean that ice is forming on the road surface.

Check Fuel Cap Message

If your fuel fill cap is loose or missing, a ‘‘CHECK FUEL CAP’’ message appears on the information display after you start the engine.

Maintenance Minder

The information display in the instrument panel shows you the engine oil life and maintenance service items when the ignition switch is in the ON (II) position. This information helps to keep you aware of the periodic maintenance your vehicle needs for continued troublefree driving.
