Speedometer

The speedometer indicates the speed of the vehicle.

Odometer, Trip Meter and Trip Meter Selector

The display mode can be changed


The display mode can be changed between trip meter A and trip meter B by pressing the selector while one of them is displayed. The selected mode will be displayed.

NOTE.


NOTE.

The odometer and trip meter can be displayed as follows even when the ignition switch is in the ACC or LOCK position.

- Displays for 10 minutes after the ignition switch is turned to the ACC or LOCK position from the ON position.

- Displays for 10 minutes after the driver's door is opened.

Odometer

The odometer records the total distance the vehicle has been driven.

Trip meter

The trip meter can record the total distance of two trips. One is recorded in trip meter A, and the other is recorded in trip meter B.

For instance, trip meter A can record the distance from the point of origin, and trip meter B can record the distance from where the fuel tank is filled.

When trip meter A is selected, pressing the selector again within one second will change to trip meter B mode.

When trip meter A is selected, TRIPA will be displayed. When trip meter B is selected, TRIP B will be displayed.

The trip meter records the total distance the vehicle is driven until the meter is again reset. Return it to “0.0” by holding the selector depressed for 1 second or more. Use this meter to measure trip distances and to compute fuel consumption.

NOTE.

- Only the trip meters record tenths of kilometers (miles).

- The trip record will be erased when:     - The power supply is interrupted (blown fuse or the battery is disconnected).

    - The vehicle is driven over 999.9 km (mile).

Tachometer

The tachometer shows engine speed in


The tachometer shows engine speed in thousands of revolutions per minute (rpm).

CAUTION.

Do not run the engine with the tachometer needle in the RED ZONE.

This may cause severe engine damage.

Engine Coolant Temperature Gauge

The engine coolant temperature gauge


The engine coolant temperature gauge shows the temperature of the engine coolant.

If the needle is near H, it indicates overheating.

CAUTION.

Driving with an overheated engine can cause serious engine damage.

Fuel Gauge

The fuel gauge shows approximately how much fuel is remaining in the tank when the ignition switch is in the ON position.

We recommend keeping the tank over 1/4 full. When the low fuel warning light illuminates or when the needle is near E, refuel as soon as possible.

NOTE.


NOTE.

- After refueling, it may require some time for the needle to stabilize. In addition, the needle may deviate while driving on a slope or curve since the fuel moves in the tank.

- The direction of the arrow (to the low fuel warning light indicates that) shows next
to the low fuel warning light indicates that the fuel-filler lid is on the right side of the vehicle.

Dashboard Illumination

Rotate the knob to adjust the brightness of the instrument cluster and other illuminations in the dashboard.

NOTE.

- The brightness of dashboard illuminations can be adjusted when the headlight switch is in the position. or
