The driver information center (DIC) has a very large amount of information that can be displayed. At any moment, you can choose what information you would like the DIC to display. To select the Coolant Temperature setting to be displayed, press the Menu button on the turn signal lever until the main Vehicle Information menu appears on the DIC. Then, use the arrows on the turn signal lever to scroll to Coolant Temperature, then press the Set/Clr button. When the Coolant Temperature setting is selected, the DIC will display the current temperature of the engine’s cooling system.
