We have been unsucessfull in resetting the average MPG back to "0". We called the Customer Service Line for Dodge and was told it should reset to Zero and was advised to take it to the dealer for programming.

We took it to the dealer, they also were unable to reset the MPG on EVIC to Zero. Page 142 of the owners manual provides detailed instructions and also shows this should reset to "0". The Dealership faxed a request to S.T.A.R and was told this will never reset to zero and the owners manual is wrong.

We are able to reset Trip A and B to zero without any problem. It does not make since that you can not reset the Average MPG. This makes me think this is like the GM products that give you "Instant MPG" and is really not providing you an average.

Symptom: When resetting it gives "----" and then immediately it changes back to what it was prior to the reset.

Has anyone been sucesfull in getting theirs to ZERO?

None of my cars reset to zero if the car is running it recalculates the MPG at that point. It might reset to zero with the engine off and not using gas haven't tried that.

I'm guessing that it didn't stay at zero for very long, the computer will always be calculating the avg and if your engine is burning gas whether idling or pedal mashed down you should have a reading. Maybe the computers are that much faster in the newer cars that they instantly update? Do we have any Dodge engineers on here or someone with more knowledge than me.(which wouldn't take much)
