So, this afternoon i was driving home from dropping the wife off to pickup her NB from being serviced. Half way home i look down at the MFD (temp., MPG, etc.) and it was totally blank. Weird huh. I got home and turned off the car and the cranked it again and it was working just fine, but i guess it had just reset itself. The funny thing was is that it said that i could drive
2000 miles
before i needed gas again. i guess everything will be ok after i drive some more and it has a chance to recalibrate itself. Has anyone had a similar experience. Just Wondering.

maybe by mistake you holded the reset button too long, I can turn off the screen by holding the reset button for few seconds, and turn back on by pressing reset button..

Yep. The reset button will shut it off if you hold it down by putting you thumb on top of the stalk and pressing it with your index finger. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Turn it back on with a touch of the button. It will turn back on after you get back in after shutting the car down.
