Gauge Overview for Model Year 2020 and Newer Slingshot

The instrument cluster on your model year 2020 and newer Slingshot includes: the speedometer (1), tachometer (2), indicator lamps (3), mode button (4), toggle buttons (5) and the Rider Information Center (6). 

Slingshot instrument cluster

To verify proper function of the indicators in the instrument cluster, activate the electrical system with the engine start/stop button. All indicators shown in the above image will briefly turn on. 

The speedometer displays vehicle speed in either miles per hour (mph) or kilometers per hour (km/h). See the Display Units section below for instructions on how to choose which unit of measurement is shown. 

The tachometer displays engine speed in revolutions per minute (RPM). A red line on the face of the gauge indicates the maximum safe engine speed. Excessive engine speed can cause engine damage or failure, which could result in serious injury or death. Do not allow engine speed to exceed the red line. 

Press and hold the mode button to enter or exit the settings menu. Press and release the mode button to cycle through Area 1 modes and to select an item. 

Press and release either toggle button to cycle through the options menu or Area 2 modes. Press and hold either toggle button to reset an item.

With the ignition off, pressing the mode button or either toggle button will power up the Rider Information Center for 10 seconds to allow viewing of the odometer and the clock. 

Indicator Lamps

LampIndicates Condition
cruise control enabledCruise Control Enabled Before using the cruise control, read the safety and operation procedures found in your Owner's Manual
cruise control engagedCruise Control Engaged Before using the cruise control, read the safety and operation procedures found in your Owner's Manual
anti-lock brake systemAnti-Lock Brake System Your dealer can assist if this lamp remains on. When the lamp is illuminated, the anti-lock brakes will not activate, but the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally.
high beam indicatorHigh Beam This lamp illuminates when the headlamp switch is set to high beam. 
turn signal hazard lightsTurn Signal / Hazard Lights

 The turn signals are located at the top center of the instrument cluster. Arrows flash when either a turn signal or the hazard signal is activated.
 If a lamp fails or if there is a short circuit in the signal system, the lamp flashes at more than twice the normal rate. 

low fuel indicatorLow Fuel This lamp illuminates when approximately 1 gallon (3.8 liters) of fuel remains in the fuel tank. 
hot engine indicatorHot Engine This lamp illuminates to indicate an overheated engine. If the indicator flashes, the overheating condition remains, and the system will automatically reduce engine power. 
check engine indicatorCheck Engine If this lamp illuminates while the engine is running, promptly contact an authorized dealer or another qualified person who can assist with diagnosis. If abnormal engine operation is detected, the light will remain on as long as the fault condition exists. Retrieve the error codes for diagnosis. See below for directions. This lamp is also known as a malfunction indicator lamp (MIL). 
low battery voltageLow Battery Voltage This lamp illuminates when battery voltage is low or when voltage is above the normal range. Turn non-essential accessories off to conserve power. Make sure the charging system is operating properly. 
traction controlTraction Control This lamp illuminates if the user disables traction control with the ESP Switch. 
E S P disabledESP Disabled This lamp illuminates if the user disables the ESP with the ESP Switch. Always enable to ESP for normal operation. 
E S P interventionESP Intervention The ESP intervention lamp flashes when the ESP is actively assisting. The lamp illuminates solid to indicate a system fault and the ESP will be disabled. If the lamp illuminates solid, your dealer can inspect the vehicle and perform service. 
brake failureBrake Failure This lamp illuminates if a brake component is not operating properly. Do not operate the vehicle. Inspect brake fluid levels. Your dealer can inspect the vehicle and perform service. 
seat belt lightSeat Belt The seat belt lamp illuminates whenever the vehicle is in ignition state and the driver's seat is not fastened. 
pinion-assisted electric power steering warningPinion-Assisted Electric Power Steering Warning This lamp illuminates briefly when the vehicle is in ignition state. If ignition state is activated for 5 minutes without starting the engine, the lamp illuminates to indicate that the PEPS has shut down to conserve battery power. If the lamp illuminates after starting the engine, the power steering system is inoperative. Your dealer can inspect the vehicle and perform service if the lamp illuminates after starting the engine. 
park brake engagedPark Brake Engaged This lamp illuminates when the park brake is engaged. If it illuminates when the park brake is NOT engaged, your dealer can inspect the vehicle and perform service. 
low oil pressure lightLow Oil Pressure This lamp illuminates if the engine oil pressure drops below safe operating pressure. If this lamp illuminates while the engine is running, turn the engine off as soon as safely possible and check the oil level. If the oil level is correct and the lamp remains on after the engine is restarted, turn the engine off immediately. 
chassis warning lightChassis Warning If a fault condition is detected, the light will remain on as long as the condition exists. Retrieve the error codes for diagnosis. This lamp is also known as an Amber Warning Lamp (AWL). 
transmission control module fault warningTransmission Control Module (TCM) Fault Warning If a fault condition is detected, the light will remain on as long as the condition exists. Retrieve the error codes for diagnosis. 


Rider Information Center
The rider information center is located in the instrument cluster. All segments will light up for one second at start-up. 

The fuel gauge shows the level of fuel in the fuel tank. When the last segment clears, a low fuel warning is activated. The outline of the fuel display will flash. Refuel immediately. 

If the instrument cluster fails to illuminate, a battery over-voltage may have occurred and the instrument cluster may have shut off to protect the electronic speedometer. If this occurs, your Slingshot Dealer or other qualified person can provide proper diagnosis. 

The rider information center contains three areas that display mode information.
