Expert:  Michael Moore replied 4 years ago.
There may be a issue with the trip reset button on the cluster. If its stuck down then it can cause this issue. Try pressing this button in a few times to see if there are any changes. If this does not change anything, we need to try and reset the cluster by removing power to it. It may rest the computer inside. To do this,remove the fuse labeled IPC/DIC in the under hood fuse block on the drivers side. Remove the fuse for a minet then reinstall. Check to see if there was any change. If not, you may have to replace the cluster. Here are instructions on lanuage changing for the cluster.

#PIT3404A: Information on How to Change IPC/DIC Language - keywords cluster display English French IPC Spanish trip - (Jul 25, 2006)

This PI has been revised to add additional model years. Please discard PIT3404.


The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

Condition/Concern:

Starting in model year 2003, the IPC/DIC is able to read out in 3 difference languages: English, Spanish, and French. Some questions have been received concerning how to change the DIC Language, mainly on vehicles without steering wheel controls.

Recommendation/Instructions:

To change between the languages on vehicles with steering wheel controls, follow Document ID # XXXXX in SI.

Vehicles without steering wheel controls follow the procedure below:

  1. Turn ignition on.
  2. Use the trip rest stem to display the Odometer on the DIC.
  3. With the Odometer displayed press and hold down the trip reset stem, after 3-5 seconds the DIC will begin to scroll thru the 3 difference languages.
  4. Continue to hold down the trip reset stem until the desired language is displayed then release the trip reset stem.

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
