Odometer doesn't show

I've got a 2011 SRT8, I've read through the owners manual and for the life of me I can't figure out how to get the total miles to register on my dash. The "A" and "B" miles will show, but not the total miles until you shut the engine off. Then they will register. What am I not doing? I'm sure it's something simple, am I just too technically challenged to make it happen???...lol

The only time I can see total miles is immediately after the car is shut off and you open the door. At least that is what I have found.

Like you, I looked in owners manual and tried all the menu buttons.

I hope someone has another way.

If you have an EVIC - and are not at "Home" - then other stuff shows up - like this on my 2010 and 2012 - hit the Home button or scroll through until you get back home.

Pressing the stick pin button on the trip odometer for a moment will cycle the odometer display between Total miles, Trip A
and Trip B. If you DON'T have the EVIC option, the display cycle will also include the outside temperature. If either of the Trip
odometer's are currently displayed and this knob is held in for a second or two, that trip odometer will be reset to 0.0 mi.

This tip is also documented in the 2009 Challenger Owner's Manual [ pg. 158 ]

THANK YOU! I've always reset the "A" and "B" off of the steering wheel in EVIC, it never occurred to me to press the stick pin button! Worked like a charm! Learn something every day!

I also found that on my own. You'd think the sales people would point out all the features.
