Combination meter illumination

When the ignition switch is turned to the “ON” position, the various parts of the combination meter are illuminated in the following sequence.

1. Warning lights, indicator lights, meter rims, meter needles, odometer, trip meter, and gauge back lights illuminate.

2. Meter needles and gauges each show MAX reading.

3. Meter needles and gauges each show MIN reading.

4. Meter and gauge dials illuminate.

5. Regular illumination (for driving) begins.


The above sequence of operations may not take place if you quickly turn the ignition switch to start the engine. This is not a malfunction.
