What is the System Check function on the message center?

The System Check feature in your car’s message center is designed to provide you with information about various systems and their functionality. If you see a message that reads “Reset for system check” on your display, press the Reset button. The message center will cycle through any status messages you have, including the following:

  • Oil life percentage (%)

  • Doors (open warning)

  • Trunk (open or closed)

  • Blind spot monitoring (if your car has this)

  • Cross traffic (if your car has this)

  • Brake system

  • Fuel in the tank

  • MyKey distance

  • MyKey(s) programmed for the car

  • Admin keys programmed for the car

Tip

Your car may only display some of these if there is a status message or condition present. If there isn’t a condition or status message, a message won’t be shown.
