The trip computer is a microcomputer controlling the driver information system.

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.

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.

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 meters 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 (----).

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 meters 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).

✽ NOTICE

  • If the vehicle is not on level ground or the battery power has been interrupted, the Distance to empty function may not operate correctly. The trip computer may not register additional fuel if less than 1.6 gallons (6 liters) of fuel are added to the vehicle.
  • The fuel consumption and distance to empty values may vary significantly based on driving conditions, driving habits, and condition of the vehicle.
  • The distance to empty value is an estimate of the available driving distance. This value may differ from the actual driving distance available.
