Hold down button 1 on dash...

And this happens.... I just read the entire owner's manual and can't figure out what it means. I was trying to set the clock in the dark (hold down button 2).

Anyone else seen this?

You started the first step to unlocking the Board Computer for Diagnostic mode. Nothing will happen and it will go back to the standard display unless you go to menu 19,_ and push the button again when it displays "off". Then the BC is unlocked, and you can see a lot of data and do the gauge sweep (cluster test). I use it on occasion to monitor instant fuel consumption, engine temperature, and actual speed.
