Odometer The odometer shows the total distance your vehicle has been driven in miles and kilometers. It is illegal under U.S. federal law and Canadian provincial regulations to disconnect, reset, or alter the odometer with the intent to change the number of miles and kilometers indicated.

Trip Meter This trip meter shows the number of miles or kilometers driven since you last reset it.

There are two trip meters: Trip A and Trip B. Switch between these displays by pressing the TRIP button repeatedly. Each trip meter works independently, so you can keep track of two different distances.

Gauges

To reset a trip meter, display it, and then press and hold the TRIP button until you hear a beep and the number resets to ‘‘0.0’’.

Select Button The select button switches the speedometer reading between miles per hour and kilometers per hour. It also changes the odometer and trip meters to read in miles or kilometers correspondingly. To change the readings, push the SELECT button, and hold it until you hear a beep.

Fuel Gauge This shows how much fuel you have. It may show slightly more or less than the actual amount.

Avoid driving with an extremely low f uel level. Running out of f uel could cause the engine to misf ire, damaging the catalytic converter.

52

Temperature Gauge This shows the temperature of the engine’s coolant. During normal operation, the reading should be in the middle of the gauge. In severe driving conditions, such as very hot weather or a long period of uphill driving, the reading may reach near the red mark. If it reaches the red (Hot) mark, pull safely to the side of the road. See page instructions and precautions on checking the engine’s cooling system.
