Trip Odometer Reset Stem Menu Items

ODOMETER

Press the trip odometer reset stem until ODOMETER displays. This display shows the distance the vehicle has been driven in either kilometers (km) or miles (mi).

To switch between English and metric measurements, see “UNITS” later in this section.

TRIPA or TRIP B

Press the trip odometer reset stem until TRIPA or TRIP B displays.

This display shows the current distance traveled in either kilometers (km) or miles (mi) since the last reset for each trip odometer.

Both trip odometers can be used at the same time.

Each trip odometer can be reset to zero separately by pressing and holding the trip odometer reset stem while the desired trip odometer is displayed.

The trip odometer has a feature called the retroactive reset. This can be used to set the trip odometer to the number of kilometers (miles) 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 retroactive 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 mi) before it is started again, and then the retroactive reset feature is activated, the display will show 8 km (5 mi). As the vehicle begins moving, the display will then increase to 8.2 km (5.1 mi), 8.4 km (5.2 mi), etc.

If the retroactive reset feature is activated after the vehicle is started, but before it begins moving, the display will show the number of kilometers (km) or miles (mi) driven during the last ignition cycle.

OIL LIFE

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 5‑40. You should change the oil as soon as you can. See Engine Oil on page 10‑8. 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 yourself 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.

PARK ASSIST

To access this display, the vehicle must be in P (Park). If your vehicle has the Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist (URPA) system, press the trip odometer reset stem until PARK ASSIST displays. This display allows the system to be turned on or off. Once in this display, press and hold the trip odometer reset stem to select between ON or OFF. If you choose ON, the system will be turned on. If you choose OFF, the system will be turned off.

The URPA system automatically turns back on after each vehicle start. When the URPA system is turned off and the vehicle is shifted out of P (Park), the DIC will display the PARK ASSIST OFF message as a reminder that the system has been turned off. See Object Detection System Messages on page 5‑41 and Ultrasonic Parking Assist on page 9‑34 for more information.

UNITS

To access this display, the vehicle must be in P (Park). Press the trip odometer reset stem until UNITS displays. This display allows you to select between metric or English units of measurement. Once in this display, press and hold the trip odometer reset stem to select between METRIC or ENGLISH units. All of the vehicle information will then be displayed in the unit of measurement selected.

DISPLAY LANGUAGE

To access this display, the vehicle must be in P (Park). 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 DISPLAY LANGUAGE displays.

2. 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.

3. Once the desired language is displayed, release the trip odometer reset stem to set your choice.
