The suggestion function can be turned on/off.

■ Suggestion to turn off the headlights If the headlights are left on for a certain amount of time after the engine switch has been turned off, if the headlight switch is in the "AUTO" position, a suggestion message will be displayed asking if you wish to turn the headlights off. To turn the headlights off, select "Yes".

If a front door is opened after the engine switch is turned off, this suggestion message will not be displayed.

Multi-information display

Eco Driving Indicator will not operate under the following conditions:

  • The shift lever is in any position other than D.
  • A paddle shift switch (if equipped) is operated.
  • Neither normal mode nor Eco drive mode is selected.
  • The vehicle speed is approximately 80 mph (130 km/h) or higher.

■Suspension of the settings display

  • Some settings cannot be changed while driving. When changing settings, park the vehicle in a safe place.
  • If a warning message is displayed, operation of the settings display will be suspended.

■Tire pressure

  • It may take a few minutes to display the tire inflation pressure after the engine switch is turned to IGNITION ON mode. It may also take a few minutes to display the tire inflation pressure after inflation pressure has been adjusted.
  • "---" may be displayed if the tire position information cannot be determined due to unfavorable radio wave conditions.
  • Tire inflation pressure changes with temperature. The displayed values may also be different from the values measured using a tire pressure gauge.

■Liquid crystal display Small spots or light spots may appear on the display. This phenomenon is characteristic of liquid crystal displays, and there is no problem continuing to use the display.

■Customization Some functions can be customized.

WARNING

■Caution for use while driving

  • When operating the multi-information display while driving, pay extra attention to the safety of the area around the vehicle.
  • Do not look continuously at the multi-information display while driving as you may fail to see pedestrians, objects on the road, etc. ahead of the vehicle.

■The information display at low temperatures Allow the interior of the vehicle to warm up before using the liquid crystal information display. At extremely low temperatures, the information display monitor may respond slowly, and display changes may be delayed.

For example, there is a lag between the driver's shifting and the new gear number appearing on the display. This lag could cause the driver to downshift again, causing rapid and excessive engine braking and possibly an accident resulting in death or injury.

■Cautions during setting up the display As the engine needs to be running during setting up the display, ensure that the vehicle is parked in a place with adequate ventilation. In a closed area such as a garage, exhaust gases including harmful carbon monoxide (CO) may collect and enter the vehicle. This may lead to death or a serious health hazard.

 

NOTICE

■While setting up the display To prevent battery discharge, ensure that the engine is running while setting up the display features.
