"Average Speed" reading

Hi Folks,

I notice that my "average speed" reading is at 27 mph, every day, since I bought the car roughly seven weeks ago. Does anyone know what time period it uses to give that reading? Is it per trip? The lifetime of the vehicle? It seems wrong that it would never change.

Thanks for any feedback.

You have to reset it manually, so it's basically calculating from whenever the last reset was, if ever. I generally reset all those readings with every gas fill up.

Oh, cool, thanks! Okay, how can one reset that? I usually like to figure these things out and/or read the manual (seriously - I've been reading that manual a lot), but today, I'm lazy. If you'd like to tell me how to do it, I'd be happy to reset it before my soul-crushing commute home.

Edit: I bet I hold the info buttons or something. Until they beep and/or squirt water in my eye. Amirite?

Okay, failure on my part so far. How do I reset average speed? I have the info rocker switch on my steering wheel that I use to cycle through average mpg, average mph, how many miles left in the tank, etc., but what am I pressing down / holding to reset average speed?

Note: Holding down the info button zeros my average mpg, but NOT my average speed, which remains at 27mph, no matter what.

Well that's odd, I've just tried it on mine. With the vehicle stopped, ignition on, cycle the display with the INFO button until average speed is displayed, then press and hold the up arrow on the INFO button for over 1.5 seconds until the display shows ---mph.

Yep you have to scroll to the setting you want then hold the info button to reset it. Sorry I didn't mention that previously.

I've been doing that, but I have a feeling that if I do it again tonight, after you and jtonline both mentioned it... it will work. I'll report back tomorrow!

Thanks, folks.

Still nothing. It actually doesn't zero anything when I hold the info button rocker switch down (or press it up) -- I was wrong yesterday about it zero-ing out my mpg. It's just that when you're stopped, it shows "--------" as your mpg, so I thought it was zero-ing things out.

So! I'm still frozen at 27mph as my average speed, permanently. Anyone have any ideas of how I can reset those readings? I tried holding the info rocker switch for a few seconds, for five seconds, for ten... I tried asking it nicely... nothing.

More notes: I've tried this at stoplights with car running, and at home with car running but in Park. I've also tried it without the engine running at all (just everything else on).

Sarah, here is the relevant part of the Owner's Manual: Trip Computer and INFO Switch (Some Models) If yours doesn't do anything, then I guess you'll have to take it in to your dealer.
