Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) Displays

The EVIC display consists of three sections:

1. The top line where compass direction, odometer line and outside temperature are displayed.

2. The main display area where the menus and pop up messages are displayed.

3. The reconfigurable telltales section below the odometer line.

The main display area will normally display the main menu or the screens of a selected feature of the main menu. The main display area also displays pop up messages that consist of approximately 60 possible warning or information messages. These pop up messages fall into several categories:

• Five Second Stored Messages

When the appropriate conditions occur, this type of message takes control of the main display area for five seconds and then returns to the previous screen. Most of the messages of this type are then stored (as long as the condition that activated it remains active) and can be reviewed from the Messages main menu item. As long as there is a stored message, an i will be displayed in the EVIC’s compass/outside temp line. Examples of this message type are Right Front Turn Signal Lamp Out and Low Tire Pressure.

• Unstored Messages

This message type is displayed indefinitely or until the condition that activated the message is cleared. Examples of this message type are Turn Signal On (if a turn signal is left on) and Lights On (if driver leaves the vehicle).

• Unstored Messages Until RUN

These messages deal primarily with the Remote Start feature. This message type is displayed until the ignition is in the RUN state. Examples of this message type are Remote Start Aborted - Door Ajar and Press Brake Pedal and Push Button to Start.

• Five Second Unstored Messages

When the appropriate conditions occur, this type of message takes control of the main display area for five seconds and then returns to the previous screen. Examples of this message type are Memory System Unavailable - Not in Park and Automatic High Beams On.

The Reconfigurable Telltales section is divided into the white telltales area on the right, amber telltales in the middle, and red telltales on the left.
