2004 Nissan Altima. Trip odometer button problem (no temp info)

I just bought a used 2004 Nissan Altima, and when I press the trip button it is supposed to cycle between "trip A", "trip B", "avg mph", "temp", ect. On mine it only cycles between trip A and trip B. Why does it do that, and is there a way to fix it?

You don' t have trip computer built in. All cars have Odo and Trip A and B. But not all of them have computer build il to show temperatute, to calculate your mpg and DTE and ect.

My trip odometer show double the distance traveled.


Check your miles by markers on the road. If the trip is double, it is a chip failure. I wouldn't worry about it until the odometer fails. It can be reset.

Maintenance required light is on


If you take your civic into a Honda dealer for regular maintenance they should reset it for you. Even most Lube shops do as well. But if you do your own vehicle services like oil changes (which is what that light is there for) then here's how you can reset it.

  1. put your key in the ignition but do NOT turn it.
  2. press and hold the Odometer/Trip button.
  3. while holding the Odometer/Trip button, turn the key to the ON position but do NOT start the engine.
  4. As you hold the Odometer/Trip button, after about 10-15 seconds the Maintenance required light should turn itself off.
  5. Once the Maintenance required light is off, turn the key into the off position then release the Odometer/Trip button.
That should do it. Hope this helps

What does trip b mean on mitsubishi lancer 2002


trip B is just a secondary trip gauge/ counter.
Same as you would use "A" to count, you can use "B" to say, split the distance or count from another point.

A. might be at 100 miles (perhaps you use that for gas check range)
B. might be your trip to a destination and you want to see how far that is without resetting your gas counter on A.

Prius start up beeps


  • Power on the car to IG-ON or READY. IG-ON will do for this purpose.
  • Using the Trip/ODO button, set the Trip/ODO display to ODO - not Trip A or Trip B
  • Power off the car.
  • Now power the car to READY (brake on). This is required so that step 6 works correctly.
  • Immediately, within 6 seconds of powering on, press and hold the Trip/ODO button for 20 seconds or more. Do not release, just hold it for 20 seconds.
  • Then WHILE STILL HOLDING ODO button, shift the "gear" selector from Park to R, then press the Park button. Now release the Trip/ODO button.
  • If the last step was successful, b on or b off should be displayed in the location where the Trip Odometer or Odometer is normally displayed. b on is beep on, and b off is beep off.
  • Press the Trip/ODO button to toggle the mode to the one you want.
  • Now power the car off to exit the toggle mode.
  • Power the car on to READY and confirm the reverse beep status by shifting to R. The beep should not be audible if b off was selected, and should be audible if b on was selected.

    Cant find where the mileage is stored


    This is right from GMC service repair manual
    Odometer
    The vehicle odometer is calculated and stored electronically in the instrument panel cluster (IPC). The base IPC contains a season odometer and a trip odometer. The uplevel IPC contains a season odometer and two trip odometers. Momentarily press the trip/reset switch on the IPC in order to toggle between the season odometer and the trip odometer. Press the trip/reset switch for greater than 2 seconds, while the trip odometer is displayed, in order to reset the trip odometer.
    The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed signal circuit from the engine control module (ECM). The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected. The odometer displays either miles or kilometers as requested by the activation of the Personalization button on the steering wheel controls.

    What does trip B mean on the odometer


    Its the same as trip A but just another one. You can use trip A to see how far you get from a tank of gas and use trip B to measure each little trip.

    2005 lexu 330, turn off maintenance light


    1. With your car OFF, place your key in the ignition and turn to "On". Do not start the car.
    2. Find the odometer button and press until it reads the total odometer setting, (not the Trip A or Trip B setting).
    3. Turn the key to OFF.
    4. Place your finger back on the odometer button, press and hold. At the same time, turn the key back to "On".
    5. Hold the odometer button in until the MAINT REQD light goes out...should take about 8-10 seconds.

    page 77 of the 2004 Lexus rx330 handbook...
    (you will find the answer you are looking for in resetting your maintenance light.)
    with the odometer reading visible, (not trip A or trip B..) turn off engine.

    While keeping Odo/trip button depressed, turn ignition back on (not starting the engine) You will see dashes (instead of numbers) on your odometer disappearing one at a time. it will be replaced by 0's (zeros).. Release the Odo/trip button and your original mileage will come up....
    And your done..... until the next oil change.

    Thank you for using fixya and good luck
