What does that A icon mean in the dashboard?

Sun Jul 15, 2018 11:13 pm

I have Nissan LEAF 2017 S, and in the dashboard, there usually is an "A" icon next to the ECO sign and the trip mileage reading. What does that "A" mean? "Automatic gear?"

Well, I was driving one day and now I see that "A" turned into a "B" now and it's stuck at "B." What does that mean?

There are three trip odometers: A, B and another "driving distance mode". Please watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lj-HF1NfP9A. Driving distance mode screen is at ~1:35.

You have 2 mileage Trip Meters, A and B. You can keep track of 2 different mileage parameters. Just hit the Trip button and watch them change. Push and HOLD to reset to zero.

Cool. Thanks. I looked thru the owner's manual again and it did explain it, but not as clearly as you (about the "A" and "B" icons).

Thanks, I have watched that video, but it just glossed over the "trip meter" and didnt talk about "A" and "B."

They mentioned two trip odometers at the beginning. If you skip to ~2:50, they talk about trip A and B.
