How to Turn Off Trip A on Your Car

February 7, 2024

Did you know that most vehicles come equipped with a car trip function? Located near your standard odometer, it’s often used to keep track of separate sections of mileage for different purposes. It’s commonly known as Trip A, and typically resets itself every time you refill your tank. However, there’s also a separate feature called Trip B that can be used to track longer distances for as long as you want.

This article will provide you with information about how to turn off Trip A on your vehicle, as well as a few other essential tips and tricks for using your vehicle’s trip function. It’s important to understand the difference between these two features so that you can use them effectively for your needs.

How to Reset Trip A on your Car

If the odometer display shows different miles than what you expect, you may have accidentally reset the trip meter. This is a simple process that can be done in a few seconds, and it should restore your vehicle’s mileage to what you expected it to be.

You can change the way this display functions by selecting the “Fuel Economy Auto Reset” mode in User Setting menu of the LCD windows (Refer to More Details). This mode will reset the displayed average fuel economy when you press and hold the INFO switch for 1.5 seconds or longer after resetting the trip meter. The average fuel economy is calculated by dividing the current driving distance and fuel consumption.
