Anyone have an answer to my questions at the end? The following is from the service manual as it relates to the EVIC
The Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) features a driver-interactive display (29). The display is located in the lower left part of the instrument cluster below the fuel and engine temperature gauges (1 and 3). This system conveniently allows the driver to select a variety of useful information by pressing the STEP button (28) to the right of the EVIC display. The EVIC displays information related to the following:
Vehicle information warning message displays
Personal Settings (customer programmable features)
Outside temperature display
Trip computer functions
UConnect™ hands-free communication system displays - If Equipped
Navigation system screens - If Equipped
Audio mode display
HANDS FREE TELEPHONE MODE - IF EQUIPPED
Provides the following information and features for the optional hands-free communications system:
Phone status: idle, voice mail, roaming, battery strength and signal strength in increments of 20 percent
Call status: Incoming call, connecting, connected, air time in minutes and seconds, call ended, busy, call failed, roaming and no phone connection
Caller ID phone number display
I have uConnect and I have never seen any information displayed on the EVIC at any time regarding its status, etc. There is some information (but not as much as they describe in the book) displayed on the radio screen but only when uConnect is activated.
Any thoughts on this?
Is EVIC capable of displaying this kind of information?
Is there something I need to do to mine to get it to display this information?
Just trying to get all the parts to talk to each other and tell me about their day.
