Trip Odometer Reset Stem Menu Items (without DIC Buttons)
This display allows you to select the language in which the DIC messages will appear. To select a language:
1. Press the trip odometer reset stem until ODOMETER displays.
2. While in the ODOMETER display, press and hold the trip odometer reset stem for three seconds until the currently set language displays.
3. Continue to press and hold the trip odometer reset stem to scroll through all of the available languages.
The available languages are ENGLISH (default), FRANCAIS (French), ESPANOL (Spanish), and NO CHANGE.
4. Once the desired language is displayed, release the trip odometer reset stem to set the choice.
Press the trip odometer reset stem until TRIP displays. This display shows the current distance traveled in either kilometers (km) or miles (mi) since the last reset for the trip odometer.
The trip odometer can be reset to zero by pressing and holding the trip odometer reset stem while the trip odometer is displayed.
The trip odometer has a feature called the retro-active reset. This can be used to set the trip odometer to the number of miles (kilometers) driven since the ignition was last turned on. This can be used if the trip odometer is not reset at the beginning of the trip.
To use the retro-active reset feature, press and hold the trip odometer reset stem for at least four seconds.
The trip odometer will display the number of kilometers (km) or miles (mi) driven since the ignition was last turned on and the vehicle was moving. Once the vehicle begins moving, the trip odometer will accumulate mileage. For example, if the vehicle was driven 8 km (5 miles) before it is started again, and then the retro-active reset feature is activated, the display will show 8 km (5 miles). As the vehicle begins moving, the display will then increase to 8.2 km (5.1 miles), 8.4 km (5.2 miles), etc.
Press the trip odometer reset stem until TRANS TEMP displays. This display shows the temperature of the automatic transmission fluid in either degrees Celsius (°C) or degrees Fahrenheit (°F) .
Trailer Gain and Output
On vehicles with the Integrated Trailer Brake Control (ITBC) system, the trailer brake display appears in the DIC. Press the trip odometer reset stem until TRAILER GAIN and OUTPUT display.
TRAILER GAIN shows the trailer gain setting. This setting can be adjusted from 0.0 to 10.0 with either a trailer connected or disconnected.
OUTPUT shows the power output to the trailer any time a trailer with electric brakes is connected. Output is displayed in 0 to 10 bars. Dashes may appear in the OUTPUT display.
To adjust trailer gain see “Integrated Trailer Brake Control System” under Towing Equipment on page 9‑100 for more information.
The speedometer shows how fast the vehicle is moving in either kilometers per hour (km/h) or miles per hour (mph). The speedometer cannot be reset.
This display shows the current battery voltage. If the voltage is in the normal range, the value will display. For example, the display may read BATTERY 13 VOLTS.
Your vehicle's charging system regulates voltage based on the state of the battery. The battery voltage may fluctuate when viewing this information on the DIC. This is normal.
This display shows the oil pressure in either kilopascals (kPa) or pounds per square inch (psi).
Compass Zone Setting
This display allows for setting the compass zone. See Compass on page 5‑6 for more information.
This display allows for calibrating the compass. See Compass on page 5‑6 for more information.
To access this display, the vehicle must be in P (Park). Press the trip odometer reset stem until OIL LIFE REMAINING displays. This display shows an estimate of the oil's remaining useful life. If you see 99% OIL LIFE REMAINING on the display, that means 99% of the current oil life remains. The engine oil life system will alert you to change the oil on a schedule consistent with your driving conditions.
When the remaining oil life is low, the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will appear on the display.
See “CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON” under Engine Oil Messages on page 5‑45. You should change the oil as soon as you can. See Engine Oil on page 10‑7. In addition to the engine oil life system monitoring the oil life, additional maintenance is recommended in the Maintenance Schedule in this manual. See Maintenance Schedule on page 11‑3 for more information.
Remember, you must reset the OIL LIFE display after each oil change.
It will not reset itself. Also, be careful not to reset the OIL LIFE display accidentally at any time other than when the oil has just been changed. It cannot be reset accurately until the next oil change.
To reset the engine oil life system, see Engine Oil Life System on page 10‑10.
