Toyota Tundra Owners Manual: Gauges and meters

Gauges and meters

  1. Tachometer
    Displays the engine speed in revolutions per minute
  2. Engine oil pressure gauge
    Displays the engine oil pressure
  3. Outside temperature display
    Displays the outside temperature within the range of -40ºF (-40ºC) to 122ºF (50ºC). Low outside temperature indicator comes on when the ambient temperature is 37ºF (3ºC) or lower.
  4. Voltmeter
    Displays the charge state
  5. Speedometer
    Displays the vehicle speed
  6. Odometer/Trip meter switching and trip meter resetting button
    Switches between odometer and trip meter displays. Pushing and holding the button will reset the trip meter when the trip meter is being displayed.
  7. Fuel gauge
    Displays the quantity of fuel remaining in the tank.
  8. Shift position and shift range display
    Displays the selected shift position or selected shift range.
  9. Odometer and trip meter display
    Displays the following items.
    Odometer: Displays the total distance the vehicle has been driven.
    Trip meter: Displays the distance the vehicle has been driven since the meter was last reset. Trip meters A and B can be used to record and display different distances independently.
  10. Multi-information display
    Presents the driver with a variety of driving-related data.
    Displays warning messages in case of a malfunction.
  11. Engine coolant temperature gauge
    Displays the engine coolant temperature.
  12. Instrument panel light control button

Changing the odometer/trip meter display

Pressing the button switches between odometer and trip meter.

Gauges and meters

■ Odometer Displays the total distance the vehicle has been driven.

■ Trip meter A*/trip meter B* Displays the distance the vehicle has been driven since the meter was last reset. Trip meters A and B can be used to record and display different distances independently.

*: Press and hold the display change button to reset.

Instrument panel light control

The brightness of the instrument panel lights can be adjusted.

Pressing the button will adjust brightness of the instrument panel light.

The brightness of the instrument panel lights can be adjusted by pressing the button.

Short press: 1 step change of brightness level.

Long press: continues change of brightness level until released.

Gauges and meters

■The multi-information display illuminate when The engine switch is in the "ON" position.

■The brightness of the instrument panel lights When the tail lights are turned on, the display's brightness will be reduced slightly unless the meter brightness level adjustment is set to the brightest setting.

■Outside temperature display

  • In the following situations, the correct outside temperature may not be displayed, or the display may take longer than normal to change.
    • When stopped, or driving at low speeds (less than 12 mph [20 km/h])
    • When the outside temperature has changed suddenly (at the entrance/ exit of a garage, tunnel, etc.)
  • When "--" or "E" is displayed, the system may be malfunctioning.

    Take your vehicle to your Toyota dealer.

■Liquid crystal display Small spots or light spots may appear on the display. This phenomenon is characteristic of liquid crystal displays, and there is no problem continuing to use the display.

WARNING

■The information display at low temperatures Allow the interior of the vehicle to warm up before using the liquid crystal information display. At extremely low temperatures, the information display monitor may respond slowly, and display changes may be delayed.

For example, there is a lag between the driver's shifting and the new gear number appearing on the display. This lag could cause the driver to downshift again, causing rapid and excessive engine braking and possibly an accident resulting in personal death or injury.

 

NOTICE

■To prevent damage to the engine and its components

  • Do not let the indicator needle of the tachometer enter the red zone, which indicates the maximum engine speed.
  • The engine may be overheating if the engine coolant temperature gauge is in the red zone (H). In this case, immediately stop the vehicle in a safe place, and check the engine after it has cooled completely.

■Voltmeter When the voltmeter indicates 19 V or higher or 9 V or lower while the engine is running, there may be a battery or charging system malfunction. Have the vehicle inspected at your Toyota dealer.

■Engine oil pressure gauge When the value of the engine oil pressure gauge drops while the engine is running, stop the vehicle in a safe place immediately and check the amount of engine oil.

When the oil pressure drops even though the engine oil amount has not decreased, or if the oil pressure does not increase when engine oil is added, contact your Toyota dealer, as there may be a problem with the lubrication system.
