What should I know about the system warnings displayed in the message center?
Your car’s message center (if equipped) is “information central” for a wide range of different things. It can show information about tire pressure, about doors that aren’t closed and a great deal more. Of course, there are a few things that you should know about the system so you can use it correctly.
Some messages will only show once. After they appear, they automatically disappear on their own. These are generally purely informational in nature.
Some messages appear and then can be cleared, but they will reappear when you crank the engine again.
Some messages can be cleared but will reappear again if the problem persists.
Some messages cannot be cleared until the problem is resolved.
Some messages can be cleared by using the Reset button.
