Gauges

Speedometer

The speedometer indicates the forward 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.

The tachometer pointer may move slightly when the ignition switch is in ACC or 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 - Red zone

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

Engine coolant temperature gauge


Engine coolant 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.

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

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 nearly empty.

On inclines or curves, the fuel gauge pointer 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

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. Running out of fuel can expose vehicle occupants to danger.

CAUTION - Low fuel

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

Odometer


Odometer

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.

✽ NOTICE

It is against the law to alter the odometer on all vehicles with the intent to change the mileage registered on the odometer.

Trip computer (Tripmeter) (if equipped)


Trip computer (Tripmeter) (if equipped)

The trip computer is a microcomputer- controlled driver information system that displays information related to driving, when the ignition switch is in the ON position.

All stored driving information (except distance to empty and instant fuel consumption) will reset if the battery is disconnected.

Cluster Type A

Cluster Type B


Cluster Type B


Tripmeter


Tripmeter

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 TRIP 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


Distance to empty

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 meters working range is from 30 to 990 miles (50 to 999 km).

Average fuel consumption


Average fuel consumption

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

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

If the vehicle speed exceeds 0.6 MPH (1 km/h) after refueled more than 6 l, the average fuel consumption will be cleared to zero (---).

Instant fuel consumption


Instant fuel consumption

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

✽ NOTICE

You must drive more than 6 MPH (10 km/h) (type A) or 3 MPH (5 km/h) (type B) for this mode to calculate the instant fuel consumption.

Average speed


Average speed

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 going while the engine is running.

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

Driving time


Driving 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 going while the engine is running.

The meters working range is from 0:00~99:59.

Pressing the TRIP button for more than 1 second, when the driving time is being displayed, clears the driving time to zero (0:00).

Outside temperature (if equipped)


Outside temperature (if equipped)

This mode indicates the outside temperature around the vehicle.

The meter's working range is from - 40C to 60C (-40F to 140F).
