The IPC utilizes a 12.3" color Thin Film Transistor (TFT) display for all cluster information. This is a complete virtual IPC without any analog gauges or LED -type indicators. All indicators and gauges appear similar to standard analog gauges and LED indicators found in other analog Instrument Panel Clusters (IPCs). The message center and adaptive cruise control information is displayed in overlays over the center of the tachometer and speedometer respectively, covering the center portion of the gauge needle images. The IPC has a feature called the quiet mode, where all overlays are turned off and basic cluster images return to normal functionality.

To alert the driver of vehicle conditions, the IPC uses:

  • gauges
  • informational indicators
  • warning indicators
  • RTT indicators
  • warning messages
  • warning chimes

Informational indicators inform the driver of conditions that exist in the vehicle. Warning indicators provide information to the driver of conditions that could potentially cause personal injury or alter vehicle performance.

Message center indicators illuminate in message center popup displays and the rotating message center indicator display area, using the same iconic representation as typical LED indicators. The message center indicators display in the order the request was received by the IPC .

Network Messaged Inputs

Module messaging has increased over time and is the standard for sending and receiving information required to operate the IPC . The majority of the inputs required to operate the IPC are received over the CAN with the remaining few inputs hardwired to the IPC .

Hardwired Inputs

The IPC requires hardwired inputs from components that are not on the CAN . These components are required for specific IPC functions.

The hardwired inputs are provided by the following components:

  • front power liftgate switch (traction control disable switch)
  • fuel pump and sender unit
  • fuel level sensor
  • low washer fluid level switch

    Changing a Flat Tire

    WARNING: If the tire pressure monitor sensor becomes damaged it may not function.

    Note: The use of tire sealant may damage your tire pressure monitoring system and should only be used in roadside emergencies. If you must use a sealant, use the Tire Mobility Kit sealant. Replace the tire pressure monitoring system sensor and valve stem on the wheel by an authorized dealer after use of the sealant.

    Note: The tire pressure monitoring system indicator light will illuminate when the spare tire is in use. To restore the full function of the monitoring system, all road wheels equipped with tire pressure monitoring sensors must be mounted on the vehicle.

    If you get a flat tire while driving, do not apply the brake hea
