late model LCD display help

Tonight I saw something briefly in the top center of the LCD display between the speedo and tach on my '09 LT.
It got me wondering is there a image of everything on that display and a description of what it means?

Re: late model LCD display help

Here it shows a 0 for the gear indicator. The lighting bolt means a temporary low battery condition associated with the EHCS. It can also display an hour glass that means you have used the EHCS to many times close together and it needs to cool. There is a "call" symbol that the book lists but I have never seen it. You can dimm the dash lights with one of the rubber buttons and it will display several boxes that ore empty or filled in as it relates to brightness. And last there is (on 07 and up) a big snow flake that means OAT is suitable for road icing.

Re: late model LCD display help

Ice on the road at 14C? = 57F

My car gives the ice warning at 3C (37F)

Isn't the exclamation point the "call" symbol?

My snowflake appears at 37F. I suspect that picture was taken with the symbols being "forced" by a diagnostic mode and not driven by the temperature.

Re: late model LCD display help

Rode my bike all winter, as low as 25 F and never once did my display show a snowflake. I rode through a few, but never saw one on the LCD.

My 2007 works fine get to 37 or below and the flashing snowflake makes itself known.

Re: late model LCD display help

I've not seen one on my '05, must be a feature they added later like being able to dim your display. IIRC, the '02 did give a ice waring in the left hand display.

Re: late model LCD display help

The dash dimming and snowflake were addins in 2006 or 2007. Remember the 2005 was actually introduced in 2004 (I got mine in June of 2004).
