pg. 27 Clock, Ambient temperature sensor (certain models)


Resetting the clock


The digital clock can be reset by pressing one of the two buttons (A and B) with a pointed object such as the tip of a pen.
h = hours
m = minutes
Maintain the pressure on the buttons for more than four seconds to change the time more quickly.


Ambient temperature sensor


This sensor indicates the temperature slightly above the road surface and represents air temperature where road icing may occur. An amber warning lamp (C) lights up when the temperature is in the range of 23 - 36° F (-5 - +2° C). Please note that this lamp does not indicate a fault with your car.
At low speeds or when the car is not moving, the temperature readings may be slightly higher than the actual ambient temperature due to the heat generated by the engine.


Display alternatives


If buttons A and B are pressed down simultaneously, it is possible to shift between four different display alternatives:


Press 1st time: 12 hour clock and °F
Press 2nd time: 24 hour clock and °F
Press 3rd time: 12 hour clock and °C
Press 4th time: 24 hour clock and °C

pg. 28 Trip computer (certain models)


Trip computer


The trip computer offers six functions which are presented in a single display. The cursor indicates the selected function. The trip computer's clock is shown permanently in the left-hand field. Refer to the previous page for more detailed information regarding the clock function.
The following data is monitored by the computer:

  • Average speed
  • Current fuel consumption
  • Average fuel consumption
  • Ambient temperature*
  • Tripmeter
  • Driving distance on current fuel reserve


    * Warning light A in the illustration above. See page 30 for more details.



    Trip computer controls


    Select one of the trip computer's six functions by using control B. The Reset button (C) is used to reset the following functions:

  • Average speed
  • Average fuel consumption
  • Trip meter
    Rotate the control to the required position and press the button for at least two seconds to reset the selected function.


    NOTE: If pressure is maintained on the button for another three seconds, all three of the functions mentioned above will be reset.

    pg. 29 Trip computer (certain models) (cont.)

    Average speed mph (Canada: km/h)


    Average speed since the function was last reset. When the ignition is switched off, the average speed is stored in memory and is used as the basis for the new figure when the engine is started again. It can be reset by pressing the reset button on the trip computer control.


    Current fuel consumption mpg (Canada: L/100 km)


    Continuous information on current fuel consumption, calculated once per second. When the car is not moving, the display shows "---".


    Average fuel consumption mpg (Canada: L/100 km)


    Average fuel consumption since the function was last reset. When the ignition is switched off, the average fuel consumption figure is stored in memory and remains in memory until it is reset using the button on the trip computer control.

    Ambient temperature


    Shows the ambient temperature just above the road surface while driving. When the temperature is in the range 23 - 36° F (-5 - +2° C), the ambient temperature sensor activates an amber warning light. Please note that this lamp does not indicate a fault with your car.
    At low speeds or when the car is not moving, the temperature readings may be slightly higher than the actual ambient temperature due to the heat generated by the engine.


    Tripmeter in miles (Canada: km)


    Shows the distance driven since the function was last reset. This value is stored in memory until it is reset using the reset button on the trip computer control.


    Driving distance on current fuel reserve
    mile 0 (Canada: km)


    Shows the distance which can be driven on the fuel remaining in the tank, calculated on the basis of the average fuel consumption and the amount of fuel remaining in the tank at the time of the reading.
    When the quantity of fuel drops to below approximately 1.8 US gals. (8 liters), a warning light in the instrument panel comes on. When the driving distance on the current fuel reserve is less than 5 miles (8 km), the display shows "".
