Electronic Vehicle Information Center display



DESCRIPTION

The Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) features a driver-interactive display. The display is located in the lower part of the tachometer on the right side of the instrument cluster. This system conveniently allows the driver to select a variety of useful information by pressing the switches mounted on the center stack of the instrument panel. The EVIC displays information related to the following:

  • System Status
  • Vehicle information warning message displays
  • Tire Pressure Monitor System If Equipped
  • Personal Settings (customer programmable features)
  • Compass display
  • Outside temperature display
  • Trip computer functions


The EVIC system is comprised of several different components. Those components are:

  • Instrument Cluster
  • Upper instrument panel switch pod
  • Ambient Temperature Sensor
  • Electronic Overhead Module
  • Controller Area Network (CAN) Data Bus


The EVIC display is part of the Instrument Cluster assembly and is not serviced as a separate component. If the display is inoperative the complete Instrument Cluster assembly must be replaced.


OPERATION

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. The EVIC data is obtained from several components on the Controller Area Network (CAN) Data Bus circuit. The EVIC will not function properly if the bus messages from any of these components is not received.


EVIC CONTROL SWITCHES

The EVIC control switches are used to operate the different functions of the EVIC system. Pressing and releasing the MENU button will change the mode displayed to one of the Personal Settings. The STEP button is used to make a selection from the Personal Setting displayed at that time. Pressing and releasing the C/T (compass/thermometer) button 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 is used to scroll through and make selections in the Trip Functions. Pressing and releasing the RESET button resets the trip computer screen displayed at that time.


EVIC DISPLAY MODES

The System status mode displays warnings and user interaction messages. Initial warnings will be displayed accompanied by a series of audible beeps. Critical text warnings will be displayed until the failure is corrected. Non-critical text warnings will be displayed for 60 seconds. The driver can scroll to view multiple messages by using the STEP button.
