The trip timer allows you to keep track of how long you have been driving for. When reset, the trip timer will run anytime the car is running, and pause whenever the car is stopped.

Press the Up/Down buttons on the steering wheel until Trip 1 or 2 is displayed on the instrument panel, then press the OK button. 2. Press the Up/Down buttons until Trip Timer is displayed, then press the OK button. 3. Press and hold the OK button to reset the trip timer. 4. Press the Left button on the steering wheel to return to the main menu.
