Below are the screens and options found in the hidden EVIC feature on the Dodge Challenger. If you have the Electronic Convenience Group package and steering wheel controls, you can press the COMPASS (or HOME button on 2010 cars) and the MUSIC NOTE buttons both together and hold them simultaneously for about 7 seconds until the hidden EVIC screen appears. On 2011 and newer Dodge Challengers, find your way to the COMPASS screen on the EVIC display, as that is the only screen where the UP and DOWN arrows have no function, then hold the UP button for 5 seconds, then the DOWN button until the hidden EVIC screen appears.

The UP and DOWN buttons will scroll you through the different EVIC screens. The RIGHT ARROW button becomes active when additional screens or actions are available which are noted by the right arrow symbol appearing on the screen. The RIGHT ARROW button also acts to clear data in some instances, so explore at your own risk.

Pressing the COMPASS button alone will take you back to the normal EVIC screens.

H I D D E N   E V I C   S C R E E N S

#1 – Miser Screen / Current MPG

evic screen

Watches over your fuel economy vs. performance via a horizontal bar graph. Also shows your average MPG (lower left) and instant MPG (lower right).

#2 – Chime Stack

evic screen

A list of the last eight warnings (chimes) that have been displayed on the EVIC.

#3 – Digital Speedometer

evic screen

Available options for this screen are:

RIGHT ARROW = The top speed will appear if you hit the right arrow button when on this screen. Hitting the right arrow again will also zero out the top speed, and hitting the right arrow again will hide the top speed.

#4 – 0 to 60 MPH Timer

evic screen

Measures your 0-60 mph time from a standstill position.

#5 – CCN Software Info

evic screen

Version Date – Date of version

Version Number – Version number

Part Number – Part number

#6 – Current Speed/RPMs/Temp/Volts

evic screen

[Speed] [RPM]

[Engine Temperature]

[Battery Voltage]

#7 – Temp Avg / Temp Raw

evic screen

TempAVG – Numerical value in degrees F or degrees C. Averaged temperature from raw sensor readings.

TempRAW – Numerical value in degrees F or degrees C. Raw temperature sensor value (instantaneous)

Last two lines, no definitive definition but seems to be time counters which might be used in the averaging program. First number counts up in seconds when the car is in motion. The second number counts up much faster when the car is in motion.

Available Actions:

RIGHT ARROW = Resets Average

#8 – Compass Raw / Oil Pressure / Pedal Position

evic screen

Compass Raw – Raw compass reading in degrees from magnetic north

Oil Press – Oil pressure value in PSI

Pdl Pos – Position of the accelerator in %, e.g., peddle to the metal = 100%

#9 – MinL / MinR

evic screen

MinL – A sensor value associated with the left fuel tank, uncertain what this measures.

MinR – A sensor value associated with the right fuel tank, uncertain what this measures.

Lt – Current left fuel tank volume in PINTS (i.e. value divided by 8 = gallons)

Rt – Current right fuel tank volume in PINTS (i.e. value divided by 8 = gallons)

19g – Fuel tank capacity, 19 gallons (number remains constant)

Avg – Average value of total fuel volume in PINTS (i.e. value divided by 8 = gallons)

#10 – AutoHLSensor

evic screen

AutoHLSens – Current value of the light sensor for the automatic headlight system (instantaneous). Higher Number = Darker

TC (2 Numbers) – First number is a dampening (averaging) value, the higher the number, the more dampening occurs, i.e. the higher the dampening value, the longer it will take for the lights to come on when it gets dark and longer it will take for the lights to go off when it gets bright. So if you go through a lot of short tunnels and don’t want the lights to keep going on and off, increase this value. The Second number is the damped sensor value.

Thld (a number and up to 2 letters) – Current threshold value. If damped sensor value exceeds this value, lights will come on. If damped sensor value goes below this value, lights will go off.

A = Automatic Headlights On. H = SmartBeam Automatic High Beam System On

HBduty – Shows the current intensity level of the SmartBeam system, 0% = off, 100% = full high beams

Available Actions:

MUSIC NOTE = Increases dampening value (max out then loop back to lowest value)

RIGHT ARROW = Increases threshold value (max out then loop back to lowest value)

#11 – LastChm / VTA / Wake / VMM

evic screen

LastChm – Last Chime (Phrase value) – What caused the last alert chime to go off. i.e. “Brk Fluid” – brake fluid light, “Airbag” airbag light and “ACC” if the adaptive cruise gave you an ATTENTION due to rapid closure and auto-cancel. Great for alerts that don’t leave a “residue” so you can find out what the hell the last ding was trying to tell you.

VTA – Vehicle Theft Alarm (Phrase value) – If alarm was triggered, value indicates the sensor that caused the alarm to go off, i.e. fault code.

Wake (Phrase value) – Indicates how the car was turned ON, i.e. “CAN Bus” = Remote starter

VMM 729 – Believed to be related to software version
