Hello,

 

 

You can reset the AVG ECON, FUEL USED or AVG SPEED trip computer modes by pressing and holding the RESET button for three seconds while you are in the mode you wish to reset. A chime will sound to confirm that your requested change has been made and all the segments of the display will briefly light up. To change the display to a metric or English reading, press the RESET and MODE buttons at the same time. Hold them down for three seconds, and the display will change. A chime will be heard to confirm the new selection. The DIC will send a class 2 message to the IPC to change the units displayed in the odometer.
