New lite turned on in dash "green flag"

Right below the air bag level indicator. A green "Checkered" flag. Turned off after a while.
Anyone know what this means? Thanks

Roland

I thought that meant you were in sport mode.

+1 sport mode.

And may I say, in the kindest way possible, RTFM?

Re: New lite turned on in dash "green flag"

My misses had the same issue, I had RTM and a knowledge bomb was dropped.

Re: New lite turned on in dash "green flag"

Try this, when you are going down the road sometime in D, pull back on the console shifter one time and you'll get the sport mode green flag. Pull back again, and you're back in just plain ole D. It's easy to hit the shifter and not realize it!

Re: New lite turned on in dash "green flag"

Whoa, my bad --i admit I skimmed over anything nondiesel in the users guide and sport mode and it's dash readings are way down my list to learn on this diesel truck. So I will go back to the book.
My interest is the proper understanding of this highly involved modern common rail engine so I can get many many miles of trouble free miles....

So to put this lightly too, if I was interested in sport mode I would have bought a gasser.

Re: New lite turned on in dash "green flag"

I have knocked it into Sport mode somehow a couple of times accidentally.
No doubt you did the same.

Re: New lite turned on in dash "green flag"

I drove my Summit to FL this week for Christmas, and tinkered with Sport once I got into some heavy stop-n-go around DC on the way home. Sport made it MUCH more responsive in the stop and go traffic (it's my only automatic, so I'm used to manual transmissions - gas and diesel - and lots of engine braking and instant throttle response). Combined with the ACC...it was amazing. Especially at the END of a 14 hour one-fuel-stop drive!

Best part...it didn't ding the fuel economy one bit. I think it will become my standard "non-highway" driving mode from here out. Snappier shifts, holds the gears longer, downshifts earlier, better engine braking...very nice, even without using the paddles (leaving it in automatic mode).

Re: New lite turned on in dash "green flag"

Interesting, I had figured sport would cost me an mpg or two...

Re: New lite turned on in dash "green flag"

It will, you will be in 7th frequently instead of 8th.
You will shift up later in the rev range.

So yes, you will use more fuel.
