odd symbol in my EVIC

I have been loving my 2012 Laredo X without any hint of problems, but the other day going for a casual drive not towing anything, I noticed a small letter "i" in the EVIC up near the compass reading. When we finished shopping and started out again, the little i was gone. This has happened a couple of times. I have checked the manual for symbols and found no reference to this. Anyone enlighten me as to what this is?

It means you have a "message" - scroll down through the options (trip info, vehicle info, etc) until you get to "messages". Usually it is for the oil life indicator - mine will come on when I forget to reset it.

Re: odd symbol in my EVIC

Thanks a lot. I've had my Jeep for nearly 3 years and there's still stuff about it I don't understand. A job for the grand-kids I guess.

Yes, go into your set up screen using the steering wheel buttons and go to messages.

Re: odd symbol in my EVIC

Follow-up. I did what you guys suggested and the message was "low battery in the key fob". I took the Jeep back to the dealer to get new batteries. They took it into the shop to investigate and came out saying the batteries were fine and that they had cleared the EVIC fault message.
So now I have 2 questions: 1.Why would this happen if the batteries were OK?
2. After the warranty is out, can you just pry these fobs open and put in new batteries yourself or is it more complicated than that?

Easy peasy.

Re: odd symbol in my EVIC

Can't answer #1, but #2 is very easy to do. Exactly what you said, pop it open and drop in a new battery. I just changed both of mine and they are CR2032.
