Hi Guys

On my dashboard a symbol has come up with 3 curvy lines (May refer to hot steam) on top of a coffee mug. What does this mean pls? My car service is due 104,000K’s it’s currently on 102,900k’s if that helps.

Thankyou.

Hi Jeanay,

The Trip Computer on late model vehicles usually includes a built-in REST TIMER (it is a coffee mug with steam).
The timer starts a new countdown from when the engine is first started.

By default it is set to 2 Hours - this is the recommended maximum time allowed for driving, without a suitable break.
It is essentially a safety feature and there will be two further reminder warnings after 5 and 10 minutes.

On the left of your dash, you will see the 3 buttons for the Trip Computer.
By pressing the top (MODE) button, you can scroll through the various info parameters (Range, Fuel Total etc) of the Trip Computer.

To adjust the Rest Timer:

- Using the MODE button, scroll through the different options until you come to the REST function.
- Using the Up or Down buttons, you can increase (or decrease) the trip duration of the timer.

The Rest Reminder function can be turned OFF completely (not recommended though) by holding both UP & DOWN buttons simultaneously for approximately 2 seconds.

To learn more, refer to your vehicle's Handbook.

Hope this explains :)
