Speedometer

Speedometer

The speedometer indicates the speed of the vehicle.

The speedometer is calibrated in miles per hour and/or kilometers per hour.

Tachometer

Tachometer

The tachometer indicates the approximate number of engine revolutions per minute (rpm).

Use the tachometer to select the correct shift points and to prevent lugging and/or over-revving the engine.

When the door is open, or if the engine is not started within 1 minute, the tachometer pointer may move slightly in ON position with the engine OFF. This movement is normal and will not affect the accuracy of the tachometer once the engine is running.

CAUTION

Do not operate the engine within the tachometer's RED ZONE. This may cause severe engine damage.

Engine temperature gauge

Engine temperature gauge

This gauge shows the temperature of the engine coolant when the ignition switch is ON.

Do not continue driving with an overheated engine. If your vehicle overheats, refer to “If the engine overheats” in section 6.

CAUTION

If the gauge moves beyond the normal range area toward the “H” position, it indicates overheating that may damage the engine.

WARNING

Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. The engine coolant is under pressure and could cause severe burns. Wait until the engine is cool before adding coolant to the reservoir.

Fuel gauge

Fuel gauge

The fuel gauge indicates the approximate amount of fuel remaining in the fuel tank. The fuel tank capacity is given in section 8. The fuel gauge is supplemented by a low fuel warning light, which will illuminate when the fuel tank is near empty.

On inclines or curves, the fuel gauge may fluctuate or the low fuel warning light may come on earlier than usual due to the movement of fuel in the tank.

WARNING - Fuel gauge

Running out of fuel can expose vehicle occupants to danger. You must stop and obtain additional fuel as soon as possible after the warning light comes on or when the gauge indicator comes close to the E level.

CAUTION

Avoid driving with a extremely low fuel level. Running out of fuel could cause the engine to misfire, damaging the catalytic converter.

Odometer (mi. or km)

Odometer (mi. or km)

The odometer indicates the total distance the vehicle has been driven. You will also find the odometer useful to determine when periodic maintenance should be performed.

Trip computer

Trip computer

The trip computer is a microcomputer controlling the driver information system. It displays information related to driving on the LCD screen when the ignition switch is in the ON position. If the battery is disconnected, then all stored driving information (except odometer) is reset.

Press the TRIP button for less than 1 second to select any mode as follows:

Tripmeter (mi. or km)

Tripmeter (mi. or km)

TRIP A : Tripmeter A
TRIP B : Tripmeter B

This mode indicates the distance of individual trips selected since the last tripmeter reset.

The meter's working range is from 0.0 to 999.9 miles (0.0 to 999.9 km).

Pressing the RESET button for more than 1 second, when the tripmeter (TRIP A or TRIP B) is being displayed, clears the tripmeter to zero (0.0).

Distance to empty (mi. or km)

Distance to empty (mi. or km)

This mode indicates the estimated distance to empty based on the current fuel in the fuel tank and the amount of fuel delivered to the engine. When the remaining distance is below 30 miles (50 km), “---” will be displayed and the distance to empty indicator will blink.

The meter’s working range is from 30 to 999 miles (50 to 999 km).

Average fuel economy (if equipped) (MPG or l/100 km)

Average fuel economy (if equipped) (MPG or l/100 km)

This mode calculates the average fuel consumption from the total fuel used and the distance since the last average economy reset. The total fuel used is calculated from the fuel consumption input. For an accurate calculation, drive more than 0.03 miles (50 m).

Pressing the RESET button for more than 1 second, when the average fuel economy is being displayed, clears the average fuel consumption to zero (----).

If the vehicle speed exceeds 1.6 MPH (1km/h) after being refueled with more than 1.6 gallons (6 l), the average fuel economy will be cleared to zero (----).

Instant fuel consumption (if equipped) (l/100 km or MPG)

Instant fuel consumption (if equipped) (l/100 km or MPG)

This mode calculates the instant fuel consumption of the last few seconds.

✽ NOTICE

Average speed (MPH or km/h)

Average speed (MPH or km/h)

This mode calculates the average speed of the vehicle since the last average speed reset.

Even if the vehicle is not in motion, the average speed keeps changing while the engine is running.

Pressing the RESET button for more than 1 second, when the average speed is being displayed, clears the average speed to zero (---).

Elapsed time

Elapsed time

This mode indicates the total time traveled since the last driving time reset. Even if the vehicle is not in motion, the driving time keeps increasing while the engine is running.

The meter’s working range is from 00:00~99:59.

Pressing the RESET button for more than 1 second, when the driving time is being displayed, clears the driving time to zero (00:00).

Distance to service (if equipped)

Distance to service (if equipped)

After selecting the maintenance of engine oil, if service is required, a corresponding message will be displayed.

Maintenance (if equipped)

Maintenance (if equipped)

1. When the vehicle is at a standstill, pressing the TRIP button for more than 2 seconds with the ENGINE START/ STOP button in the ON position or engine running, the LCD display on the cluster will change to the "User Setting" mode.
You can move to the items by pressing the TRIP button and select the item by pressing the RESET button.
2. In the "User Setting" mode select "Maintenance".
3. Select the desired maintenance schedule.
4. If finished, you can come out of the Maintenance mode by pressing the TRIP button for more than 2 seconds.

✽ NOTICE

If service is required, "Engine oil service required" message will be displayed. If you would like to reset or inactivate the maintenance system, press the reset button.

The display will change to "Oil Service Message" mode.

You can move to items by pressing the TRIP button and select the desired items by pressing the RESET button.
