No secret menu. Most "secret" thigns are actually in the owners manual that people are too lazy to read.

I've never heard of "inteligent lights" so I guess I am not too intelligent.

The interior lights will automatically turn off if you leave them switched on after about 3 minutes.

I always forget the little secret things this vehicle does. then i rediscover them by accident. I can't think of any right now. There is a way to shut off the automatically lowering mirrors when you are in reverse.

*Heated Windshield
*Tilt and telescoping steering wheel
*Heated windshield fluid reservoir
*The switch on the transmission shifter that makes it sport in HI range and a Manual Mode in LOW range. i just figured that out one day by accident.

Hold the memory seat button for 3 seconds, engine off, key on, in reverse, and they will shut off

Okay, so it's a bit boring, but did you know...

There is a channel directly behind the back seats that stores the folded backboard when not being used.

Undocumented "secret"/fact - to replace the rear wiper blade... have someone operate the rear wiper from inside the vehicle and then pop the upper tailgate open when the blade is near vertical.

Simple eh?

Is it just me or is it a pain going through the rave? My download opens up as just a cryptic list of directories, am I doing something wrong?

without knowing what "cryptic directories" you are looking at htere;s not much we can help with. If you have the verison listed in the FAQ did you follow the directions in the FAQ?

I loaded the version in the FAQ but never read directions, sounds like a good place to start, I'll let you know if I need more help.

Thanks
Eric

:lol: No sweat. It's amazing how many people can't get RAVE to work on their computers because they are clicking on the wrong item.

Well that works a lot better. Thanks for the headsup. Everything seems a lot less secret now that I can move around in RAVE better.

Cheers,
Eric

One thing i've noticed when driving on petrol, is that on the overrun, the ecu stops injecting fuel to aid engine braking. I would have thought it'd do this in Low Manual mode only, but not so. In Low 1st Manual mode though, the engine braking in pretty impressive!

And another thing, the torque reduction signal from the transmission only works when changing from 1st to 2nd in mine - is that normal?

*headlight delay: if yo leave the headlights on after you turn off the ignition switch, it'll leave the lights on 1-2 minutes after you turn off the switch.

*rear wiper turns on automatically when you are in reverse and you have the front wipers on.

*you can engage manual mode for the transmission when you are in low range by hitting the switch next to the shifter. this keeps the gear you choose locked in without out it dropping down a gear.

*i also noticed when i first bought it, i could never get the gas door to pop. i was always having to pull the cord behind the tail light access. I finally learned the ignition has to be off to get the door to pop with the button.:oops:
