Oil Change Reminder Lamp: Service and Repair
ELECTRONIC VEHICLE INFORMATION CENTER
The Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) uses both non-switched and ignition switched sources of battery current so that some of its features
remain operational at any time, while others may only operate with the ignition switch in the On position. When the ignition switch is turned to the On
position, the EVIC display will return to the last function being displayed before the ignition was turned to the Off position.
The EVIC system is comprised of several different components that communicate over the Controller Area Network (CAN) Data Bus. If the system is
inoperative a scan tool and the appropriate diagnostic information must be used to diagnose the system.
The EVIC control switches are used to operate the different functions of the EVIC system. Pressing and releasing the MENU button (4) will change the
mode displayed to one of the Personal Settings. The STEP button (3) is used to make a selection from the Personal Setting displayed at that time.
Pressing and releasing the C/T (compass/thermometer) button (1) will cause the EVIC to return to the compass/thermometer/ trip computer display mode
from any other mode. From the compass/thermometer/trip computer display mode the STEP button (3) is used to scroll through and make selections in
the Trip Functions. Pressing and releasing the RESET button (2) resets the trip computer screen displayed at that time.
