    Question XTS Luxury trip odometer

    Does anyone know how to access xts luxury trip odometer? All I see is total miles odometer. This simple feature shouldn't be difficult to use.

    How does one access, and use the trip meters in a 2013 XTS Luxury? In my old 2006 STS using the trip meters was very useful, and EASY to use.

    Also, if the trip meters can be accessed, how does one reset them to zero?

    Thank you

    On the right side of the steering wheel press teh button to the left. it should hightlight the center bottom portion of the display. next press up or down to scroll through. You should come up on a MPG setting. Press the center of the button and it should set your MPG which also set your tripometer. To reset press left again and reset should come up....I think I have that right. Have it set in mine but not near it right now.

    WOW! Ain't technology wonderful??!! And to think in the olden days all you had to do is press the small knob protruding through the instrument cluster to reset the trip odometer. How primitive !!!

    I tried your suggestion, and wasn't successful. Since I was near the Cadillac dealer, I stopped in, and a service adviser, after he looked in my owners manual, figured it out. Apparently the motor has to be running before the trip meters can be selected. I bought my XTS with 10000 miles on it, and the original owner owner never reset either trip meter, Consequently trip 1, trip 2,and the odometer all had the same milage reading. This added to my confusion, which isn't hard to do.

    It works now.
    Thank you,

    Hello rdogs,

    I am glad to hear that the service advisor was able to assist you when you took your vehicle into the dealership recently. I apologize that finding out how to do this caused confusion. I will definitely document the feedback about that. Please feel free to private message me if you have any further comments or feedback you would like me to document as well. Thanks for posting an update!
