How do I use the Timer setting?

The Timer setting in the driver information center (DIC) allows you to set a timer while you are driving. To access the Timer setting, press the Menu button on the turn signal lever until the DIC displays Trip/Fuel Information, then use the arrows on the turn signal lever to scroll to Timer. Once the timer is displayed on the DIC, press the Set/Clr button on the turn signal lever to start the timer. Press the Set/Clr button at any point to pause the timer, and press and hold the Set/Clr button to restart the timer. The timer can record up to 99 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds, at which point it will reset and start over. The timer will not run when the ignition is not on, but it will pick up where it left off when you turn the vehicle off and turn it back on.
