NOTICE
n To prevent damage to the engine and its components
l Do not let the indicator needle of the tachometer enter the red zone, which indi-
cates the maximum engine speed.
l The engine may be overheating if the temperature gauge is in the red zone (H). In
this case, immediately stop the vehicle in a safe place. Check the engine after it
has cooled completely. (→P. 384)

*: These lights turn on when the ignition key is turned to the ON position to
indicate that a system check is being performed. They will turn off after
the engine is started, or after a few seconds. There may be a malfunction
in a system if a light does not come on, or if the lights do not turn off.
Have the vehicle inspected by your Lexus dealer.
CAUTION
n If a safety system warning light does not come on
Should a safety system light such as ABS, VSC and the SRS airbag warning light not
come on when you start the engine, this could mean that these systems are not
available to help protect you in an accident, which could result in death or serious
injury. Have the vehicle inspected by your Lexus dealer immediately if this occurs.

n Average vehicle speed
Displays the average vehicle speed since the engine
was started or the function was reset.
The function can be reset by pushing the INFO switch
for longer than one second when the average vehicle
speed is displayed.
n Average fuel consumption
Displays the average fuel consumption since the
vehicle was last refueled.
n Current fuel consumption
Displays the current rate of fuel consumption.
n Driving distance
Displays the driving distance since the engine was
started.
The function can be reset by pushing the INFO switch

n Driving range
Displays the estimated maximum distance that can
be driven with the quantity of fuel remaining.
This distance is computed based on your average fuel
consumption. As a result, the actual distance that can be
driven may differ from that displayed.
CAUTION
