2012 Dodge Grand Caravan - What is the 'DTE' display?

20

Asked by Oct 12, 2011 at 05:59 PM about the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan

Question type: General

The electronic console shows the temperature, mpg, two trip odometers, total mileage, speed, etc. But, there is one entry labeled 'DTE' that is not explained in the manual. In fact, much of the manual doesn't match my console at all. Anybody know what is referring to? Numbers appear but I can't correlate what they go to. Other than that, a great automobile so far.

DTE stands for Due Till Empty, pretty much its telling you how many miles you have left before your tank is empty

Duel Tack Eletrode,has to do with tackodometer,if the tack gets out of sink with the RPM,s,it will light up.

hes talking about the Due Till Empty display, it displays numbers which correlate to the number of miles left before the gas tank is empty

also on a car this new, the tachometer will never be out of sync. the reason for that is because the tachometer on this vehicle gets its reading from the ECM which gets a digital signal from the crankshaft position sensor. a misreading tachometer is pretty much a thing of the past.

i totally spew BS which is why my answer to the question was 100% correct, seeing as i have the same DTE on my 2004.5 ram 3500. ive honestly never even heard of a Dual Tach Electrode, its possible its a make believe part, or just before my time as an automotive technician.

Distance till empty or Drive till empty to prove this if for example it says DTE 135 it means you can go about 135 miles based off your driving average MPG but if you simply put gas in or fill up you will see that number increase because you have a lot more gas until your tank is empty
