Is it easy to upgrade my base DIC to the full information DIC? I'd like to have more info when I'm driving, but not sure how hard it is to swap it out, or if it's even possible. Anyone know?
I do have the menu button, but the only thing that allows me to do is change the language, and see my oil life monitor. Seems strange to me that that's all my DIC will show, as I figured all ecos had the bigger one.You dont have a menu button on the turn signal stalk? Thats how I operate mine. Dont know why the Canadian Eco, would be any different from the US version, even the stripped LS, has just about all of the DIC screens, except some of the fuel economy screens that are Eco specific. But you have an Eco.
Mine is the only one I've seen like this. I looked at several others, but got this one 'cause it was the cheapest eco I could find, and has the 6M.That's crazy that they'd dumb the DIC down that much for the Canadian market. We have 3 screens and 3-4 settings per screen.
Definitely an eco. No power in 6th gear.OP, please confirm the actual trim level of your Cruze. Even the 2011 ECOs had a version of the game display. Don't confuse the EcoTec engine with the ECO trim level. I do agree that the Canadian displays are less useful.
Since it looks like the European, maybe it's the French Canadian version? :grin:Who knows. 2011s had all kinds of weird options packaging - and the Canadian market is even moreso.
Yeah, you can hope. For starters, I think you'd need to find a dealer parts guy who is a bit bored and looking for a challenge. And then hope that the programming software will allow you to set the option rather than have it dictated by the VIN.I'd think it would take no more than a new instrument cluster and a software re flash, but I don't know the ins and outs of these things.
