setting messed up

Post by radar2018 » Fri Jun 28, 2019 9:52 pm

When I got my NIRO PHEV it had (DRIVE INFO) permantly on the small display, showing Miles, MPG and journey time, now it only displayes that info when I switch off.

How do I get it back (where in instruction book?

Hi The small screen is showing " Driving Assist" I cannot remember how I lost the DRIVE INFO but it was just 2 weeks ago and I have tried to get back without success

The display is changed by using the inner set of controls to the right of the centre of the steering wheel. The upper button one selects between several different sets of displays, and the up/down toggle takes you through that set in sequence. I suggest you cycle through all the displays available to you.

page 4-56 of my owners manual shows the controls I described in the previous reply. Page 4-77 shows the sequence of sets of pages (LCD modes) for the PHEVfor the PHEV. 1. Trip computer (you want that one) , 2 turn by turn (shows compass or Satnav instructions), 3. Assist mode (you currently are on that one), 4. User Setting. These get overridden by 5. Master Warning mode for malfunctions. Once you are in Trip Computer Mode, the sequence of screens using the toggle is shown on page 4-70. The drive info you want is the Drive info - next in sequence after the Accumulated Info.

The manual shows a screen which displays Average and instantaneous fuel economy. I don't appear to have that display. It also suggests that there are 2 sets of tripmeter data (A/B) but my car only seems to store one set of accumulated data plus the data for the current trip.

Hope this helps you. I use several of the displays - digital speedo, trip, accumulated trip being used the most. Occasionally I check the tyre pressures, and sometimes I check the engine temperature - especially before turning the heating on.

My car and manual are different to yours, even the manual does not match my car. I cannot find any where Accumulated Info. I did use the tyre pressure function, since then I have not been able to get the settings back, I only have 4 icons on the small display.

Page 4 - 77 do'es not show the things that yours is showing, and I now realise that the remaining miles for journey is also missing,

What model year is your PHEV? Mine was manufactured around the turn of the year 2017-18 and registered at the end of March 18; the barcode on the back of my manual is labelled JG5O-EA79B and the foreword is copyright 2017. I thought that prior to the 2019 model all the PHEV's sold in the UK were the same.

OCTOBER 30 2018

You mention things that I cannot find in my instruction book, but it appears to be the car that is different from both books.

We are talking about the screen infront of the steering wheel and not the larger coloured screen.

I have sat in the car with my computer following your instructions and things seem different.

I will look at the barcode and information on the back of the manual tomorrow.

Then I will give upon this one.
