Weird EVIC response
Two or three times now I have had my EVIC display go from fuel economy straight to tire pressure when I press the back arrow, instead of going back to the main menu. Has anyone experienced something similar to this while navigating the EVIC? :)

Re: Weird EVIC response
I have not had that happen, but my first thought on reading your post is "Were any of the tire pressures low?". Perhaps it is programmed to take you to the tire pressure display if the pressure in one of the tires is below some particular threshold.

Re: Weird EVIC response
I thought the same thing when it did that but all four tires were in the low 40 psi range.

Re: Weird EVIC response
low 40 psi range?
uhhh maybe you are running too MUCH pressure?

I know when I had wheels on my Jeep without TPMS my EVIC behaved in the manor you are describing. I think it is built into the system to show you the tire pressure if they are out of range. Have you got a chime or tire pressure warning light? I don't think it would go off it set too high? but not sure.

Re: Weird EVIC response
I have not received any chime or warning for the tire pressure. I am running with the 20" frontera's. Is seeing 40-41psi on a warmer day (80F) on the interstate too high?

Re: Weird EVIC response
Most recommend to have your tire PSI at 33 when cold. At most when driving 40-45. But some tires handle more. I would read on the tire wall what is recommended.

Re: Weird EVIC response
20" fortera's recommend 36 COLD. I get into 40/41 (and an extreme 42) on warm days, 80 mph, long stretch's of the highways....
