Red Ring around Speedo
 
Hi All,

I have been noticing a red ring around the EVIC speedometer at different times. It happens when the GC is started, and if this was the only time I would think it is just being tested. It also happens when going from Drive into Sport. The ring does not stay on for longer than a second or so. Is there a message that I am missing here? What does the red ring indicate?

Thanks in advance for any information.

The Red Ring is normally associated with a warning of some kind.
Are there any stored messages?

Thanks Snuke.

No stored messages. Just on for short time then off at start up, which I think is just testing. What got to me was it comes on going from "D" to "S".

I think that's normal. Its just a visual cue to draw your attention to the EVIC. I will look at mine today and confirm.

When you go from D to S, a message appears in the EVIC telling you that it is entering Sport Mode, ergo, the red border.

Sorry to state something obvious, but what's your speed limit set to?, it could be the speed alert
