Dashboard Lights

Asked by Sep 21, 2012 at 05:06 AM about the 2004 Volkswagen Passat GL

Question type: General

Hi guys,
I would truly appreciate it if someone could help me out. Previously, the center screen of my dashboard
used to light up and show me not only the current temperature but also the amount of minute my car
had been running for. Now all of a sudden, instead of seeing the running time of my vehicle my
dashboard screen displays the amount of MPG which changes as I speed up, enter traffic, and all that.
Does anyone know how I can switch it back so that it displays the running time?

Thanks!!!

You can try this to access the "secret computer" those cars have. I got this from a forum.. "push fan down, temp colder and Econ" and you scroll through with the temp up/down buttons

1,325

Button for multi function display is on the end of the windshield wiper stalk. You probably just bumped it without realizing. There are several functions available; I like the instantaneous MPG, personally.
