Driver Information Center (DIC) (With DIC Buttons)

If your vehicle has DIC buttons, the information below explains the operation of this system.

The DIC displays information about your vehicle. It also displays warning messages if a system problem is detected.

All messages will appear in the DIC display located at the top of the instrument panel cluster.

The DIC comes on when the ignition is on. After a short delay, the DIC will display the information that was last displayed before the engine was turned off.

The DIC also displays a shift lever position indicator on the bottom line of the display. See Automatic Transmission on page 9‑23 for more information.

The outside air temperature and compass, if equipped, also display on the DIC when viewing the trip and fuel information. The outside air temperature automatically appears in the top right corner of the DIC display. If there is a problem with the system that controls the temperature display, the numbers will be replaced with dashes. If this occurs, have the vehicle serviced.

The compass will be shown in the bottom right corner of the DIC display. See Compass on page 5‑6 for more information.

The DIC has different displays which can be accessed by pressing the DIC buttons located on the instrument panel.

The DIC also allows some features to be customized. See Vehicle Personalization (With DIC Buttons) on page 5‑46 for more information.

If your vehicle has DIC buttons, you can also use the trip odometer reset stem to view the odometer and trip odometers.
