Trip mileage resetting
With “trip mileage recorder” selected on the display, press button 1 or 2 until the mileage recorder resets to zero.
Resetting the journey parameters (reset button)
With one of the journey parameters selected on the display, press button 1 or 2 until the display resets.
Interpreting some of the values displayed after resetting
The values showing average fuel consumption, range and average speed will become more stable and reliable the further you travel after pressing the reset button.
For the first few miles after pressing the reset key you will notice that the range increases as you travel. This range takes into account the average fuel consumption since the last time the reset button was pressed. Therefore, the average fuel consumption may decrease when:
- the vehicle stops accelerating;
- the engine reaches its operating temperature (if the engine was cold when the reset key was pressed);
- when driving from an urban area onto the open road.
Automatic resetting of the journey parameters
Resetting occurs automatically when the maximum value of any of the parameters is exceeded.
