DIC Info Pages

The following is the list of all possible DIC info page displays.

Some may not be available for your particular vehicle. Some items may not be turned on by default but can be turned on through the Settings app. See "DIC Info Page Options" earlier in this section.

Speed : Shows the vehicle speed in either kilometers per hour (km/h) or miles per hour (mph).

Trip A or Trip B : Shows the current distance traveled, in either kilometers (km) or miles (mi), since the trip odometer was last reset.

This also shows the approximate average liters per 100 kilometers (L/100 km) or miles per gallon (mpg). This number is calculated based on the number of L/100 km (mpg) recorded since the last time this menu item was reset.

This number reflects only the approximate average fuel economy that the vehicle has right now, and will change as driving conditions change.

Press and hold while this display is active to reset the trip odometer and the average fuel economy. Trip A and Trip B can also be reset by pressing and choosing reset.

Fuel Information : Fuel Range: Shows the approximate distance the vehicle can be driven without refueling. LOW will be displayed when the vehicle is low on fuel. The fuel range estimate is based on an average of the vehicle's fuel economy over recent driving history and the amount of fuel remaining in the fuel tank.

Oil Life : Shows an estimate of the oil's remaining useful life.

If REMAINING OIL LIFE 99% is displayed, that means 99% of the current oil life remains.

When the remaining oil life is low, the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will appear on the display.

The oil should be changed as soon as possible. See Engine Oil.

In addition to the engine oil life system monitoring the oil life, additional maintenance is recommended in the Maintenance Schedule. See Maintenance Schedule.

The Oil Life display must be reset after each oil change. It will not reset itself. Do not to reset the Oil Life display 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, press and hold for several seconds while the Oil Life display is active. See Engine Oil Life System.

Tire Pressure : Shows the approximate pressures of all four tires. Tire pressure is displayed in either kilopascal (kPa) or pounds per square inch (psi). If the pressure is low, the value for that tire is shown in amber.

See Tire Pressure Monitor System and Tire Pressure Monitor Operation.

Average Speed or Average Vehicle Speed : Displays the average vehicle speed of the vehicle in kilometers per hour (km/h) or miles per hour (mph). This average is based on the various vehicle speeds recorded since the last reset. Reset the average speed by pressing .

Fuel Economy : The center displays the approximate instantaneous fuel economy as a number and bar graph. Displayed above the bar graph is a running average of fuel economy for the most recently traveled selected distance. Displayed below the bar graph is the best average fuel economy that has been achieved for the selected distance. The selected distance is displayed at the top of the page as "last xxx mi/km." Press to select the distance or reset best value. Use and to choose the distance and press .

Press and to select "Reset Best Score." Press to reset the best average fuel economy. After reset, the best value displays "-,-" until the selected distance has been traveled.

The display provides information on how current driving behavior affects the running average and how well recent driving compares to the best that has been achieved for the selected distance.

Follow Distance : If equipped, the current follow time to the vehicle ahead is displayed as a time value on this page.

Economy Trend : Shows history of the Average Fuel Economy from the last 50 km (30 mi). Each bar represents about 5 km (3 mi) of driving. During driving the bars will shift to always reflect the most recent distance on the right side.

Press and hold to clear the graph or press to reset through the menu.

Timer : This display can be used as a timer. To start the timer, press while this display is active. The display will show the amount of time that has passed since the timer was last reset. To stop the timer, press briefly while this display is active and the timer is running. To reset the timer to zero, press and hold while this display is active, or press and select reset.

Speed Limit : Shows sign information, which comes from a roadway database in the onboard navigation, if equipped.

Battery Voltage : Displays the current battery voltage, if equipped.

Battery voltage changes are normal while driving. See Charging System Light. If there is a problem with the battery charging system, the DIC will display a message.

Coolant Temperature : Displays the coolant temperature in degrees Celsius (C) or degrees Fahrenheit (F).

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Level (Diesel Engine Only) : Displays the current DEF level.

Oil Pressure : Oil pressure is displayed in either kilopascal (kPa) or pounds per square inch (psi). Oil pressure can vary with engine speed, outside temperature, and oil viscosity. On some models, the oil pump will vary engine oil pressure according to engine needs. Oil pressure may change quickly as the engine speed or load varies. This is normal. If the oil pressure warning light or DIC message indicates oil pressure outside the normal operating range, check the vehicle's oil as soon as possible.

Blank Page : Shows no information.
