INSTRUMENT PANEL

The instrument panel displays information, warnings, and menu options to the driver. See WARNING LAMPS AND INDICATORS.

Dependent on the market specification, the instrument panel can be configured to display in miles or km. Select the Display and Units instrument panel menus. The temperature and tyre pressure units can also be configured. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

The vehicle has one of the instrument panel types from the following list:

  • Standard instrument panel: The speedometer and tachometer dials are permanently visible.

  • Virtual instrument panel: All of the displayed information, including the speedometer and tachometer dials, is only visible with the ignition switched on.

Standard instrument panel:

The standard instrument panel consists of:

  1. Information panel: Displays information and menu selection options.

    To configure the information panel display to suit personal preferences, select Info panel from the Display instrument panel menu.

  2. Speedometer: Displays the current vehicle speed. Dependent on the market specification, the digital speedometer can be configured to display in mph or km/h. Select the Speedometer option via the Display and Units instrument panel menus.

  3. Tachometer: Displays the current engine speed, i.e., revolutions per minute (rpm).

  4. Temperature gauge: Displays the current engine temperature.

    If the pointer moves onto the red line, the engine is overheating. In this event, the instrument panel illuminates the engine temperature warning lamp. See ENGINE TEMPERATURE (RED).

    If the engine overheats, stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits. Allow the engine to idle until the temperature reduces. If the temperature does not reduce after several minutes, switch the engine off and allow it to cool. If the problem persists, seek qualified assistance immediately.

    CAUTION

    Serious engine damage occurs if the vehicle is driven while the engine is overheating.

    NOTES

    In the event of the engine overheating, a reduction in engine performance may occur. The Air Conditioning (A/C) system may also cease operation, to reduce the load on the engine and assist with engine cooling.

  5. Fuel gauge: Displays the current fuel tank level.

    An arrowhead symbol, next to the fuel pump symbol, indicates which side of the vehicle the fuel filler flap is located.

    If the instrument panel illuminates the low fuel warning lamp, refuel the vehicle as soon as possible. See LOW FUEL WARNING (AMBER).

    To view the approximate driving distance for the current fuel level, press the trip button to select the Range trip content option. See USING THE TRIP COMPUTER.

    CAUTION

    Never allow the engine to run out of fuel. Doing so may cause serious damage to the vehicle's fuel system.
