Just did an oil change on the car and when I reset the oil life sensor, now the digital speedometer is gone. Everything else works, there's just nothing there indicating speed anymore. How do I correct this?

Are you sure it's not just a case of scrolling to the right screen? IIRC, there is one screen that is blank. You just have to scroll up/down from there to get to another screen.

Crazy I just had the same thing happen to mine today no idea how to fix it. I have a 2014, all I can see is the tire pressure, oil life, battery power. Doesn't matter how many times I press menu, up or down, select nothing works besides that and a blank screen. So hopefully someone can help you out and I'll just try the same thing. Good luck!

So, clearly you know how to scroll between screen by twisting the little ring on the end. You're saying that once you press the menu button, that you can't scroll at all?

I can scroll to the same screen you have.

That appears to be the blank screen in the vehicle information display rotation. If you're unable to scroll away from it then I'd suspect the control stalk has failed as it's the only mechanical part of the system.

Arsig320 indicates that he can scroll. I'm not sure about OP. If they can scroll in the other tab, but not in this one, then that suggests one of the computers (DIC?) has gone out to lunch. Disconnecting the battery seems like a good fix if shutting down the car and opening the driver's door doesn't do it. (Of course, check for scrolling after that.)

Just to be clear, the screen pictured is NORMAL and can be selected. It's the inability to select other screens that's abnormal.

Yes, I can scroll just fine, all other information except the speedometer works just fine. But when you drive, you get nothing but a blank screen instead of the normal speed.

Are you able to use the menu button to switch between the car info screens and the trip/odometer screens? I'm wondering if the menu button has failed.

Nope, it works fine, can get to everything, the digital readout for the speedometer is gone, everything else works.

Looks like it came back. I disconnected the battery for about a half hour today and when I restarted the engine, I had a speedometer again. No clue why it worked, but it did.
