Some of us Titan owners just notice that in the instrument cluster where the trip-meter and "P" "D" area, there's a digital readout (at least the outline) of a digital "MPH" and rear sonar guage (look like it has a "meter"). Do you guys/gals have this and does it work?

Can see something

I have a 4x2, I can see the outline fo the 4x4 on the right side of the trip readout and the PRND321. I can see there is something to the left as well but can't make it out. Is this what you are talking about? I referenced the user manual and see no reference to anything over there. I have never seen anything light up over there either. Probably ideas that were cut out to save money.

Yes that is correct, I have a 4x2 Titan and have that same 4x4 outline. To the left of it is the one I'm talking about. Since you have a Mada and it don't work for you, maybe its for QX56 or even a future option.

My guess, and this is in no way a educated guess, is it was a safety call. If your looking at this small area for mph or for backing I think it would be inherently dangerous while the truck is moving. Just a thought.

In the quest to find out about this I found something I didn't know before. With the ign. off press and hold the reset button for about 10 sec. now turn key on (no need to start engine) continue to hold till you see "test" now you can scroll thru the menu by pushing the reset button. Stuff came up like telling me about octane and stuffs, it will also test all your bulbs on the cluster, will test all your guages and needles.
VIDEO here.

maybe laser cruise for qx56 ?
Yes that indicator that you are referring to is the meter for setting up the distances on the laser for the Qx56. It's for short, medium, and long distance.

So that whole area is for laser cruise isn't it??? Did it make it into production??? Just curious if it could be mod'd into our Armadas/Titans. :D

That's what happens when we open up 3 year old threads. :D

Here's something I found in a old post over on TT, maybe this will be of some help. Oh, I don't think you want to try to MOD the laser over on to an Armada, it would be way more fun to do than you could imagine. I had to rewire a Qx56 for one once, a lot of work!!!!!!!!




For all you tech geeks, here is a break down of all the different entries in diagnostic mode. There is a oil pressure, entry, but unfortunately the output is in Hex, so that's not very natural too look at..

That would be pretty cool though, i think it would be worth the time to mod it over if it were possible. hmmmmmmm that would be nice. I think the wife would flip out if she saw our Mada's wiring all spaghettied out though. i would have to send her to her moms for a little vacation first.
