    They tell you tire pressures, auto door locks on or off, miles to empty, mpg, trip odo, etc.

    Snide comments aside, it would be easier if you could find an owners manual. The panel sets up a whole host of features in the car (the button with the car), in addition to showing the trip monitor and fuel consumption (the button with the highway symbol).

    Didn't mean to be snide. I assumed you had an owner's manual. Go to Cadillac.com. Half way down under "Owners", click on owner center. Where it says "Getting to know your vehicle", select year and model. Open owner's manual. see page 3. Hope that steers you in the right direction. Those controls are much too involved to explain in a simple email. Good luck.

    Cadillac dealer should be able to get you a duplicate manual. That's what mine came with.

    The Driver Information Center (DIC) provides the status of the vehicle’s systems. The DIC Displays & Controls are explained on Pages 3-72 thru 3-74 of the DTS Owner’s Manual. You can get a copy of the Manual from the directions provided, above, by the Forum Members.

    Who needs a Manual?

    That is your driver information center.

    Basically the Road shows your information about call performance and travel information. Keep pushing it to cycle through options.

    The Car with the i is information about the vehicle itself.

    The check list is about the on and off features that car has.

    Just experiment and you will learn.

    Who needs a manual? These cars have features that many people would never just figure out, and some that people would never even know they have. The manual should be read cover to cover, at least twice.

    I never read mine, Figured it out just fine. Just push the button and see what happens. Boom, now I know.

    Plus, I never said "No one should read manuals." Im simply making a joke on how easy it is to figure this stuff out.... just push the button and learn. Plus the icons kinda are a dead giveaway of what they are.... Just stay away from the skull and cross-bones button to the right of the AUX jack.
