Android based head unit, with a Resler interface, and the ibus app will automatically set the clock and allows you to reset mpg

Well, it's a bigger problem. I didn't notice it until yesterday. Trying a "PROG" does not work. More display info is missing. Data is displayed on the radio.

You need the IBUS app and interface. It allows you to use the BC functions via your new head unit.

Update: \ranking it up, the maintenance light row was briefly on then it turned off after running a few seconds. I'll put the Foxwell scanner on it today.

Does anything show up on your info screen there? Usually if the backlit lightbulb burns out, a little bit of light will bleed over from the other two. They're not too hard to change out. But it's hard to tell from your picture if the LCD is broke or if its the backlight lightbulb.

Yes, I saw this. It's an "add on" i can buy for my android based unit. OOff...I really wish I had the stock unit and just retrofit the BlueTooth feature via CD changer in.

The maintenance lights do light for a second or two. Green, yellow, and red. If I use steering wheel controls, the radio station ID does display. However, after a few seconds, it goes blank again.

All that sounds pretty normal....

Best way to confirm the display is working properly is to press the right cluster button - you should see 'CHECK CONTROL OK" come up on the display. If you keep holding it down, you can access the BC diagnostics menus.

There is a dash display test routine in the diags.

Checkout this post from Qsilver7...

https://xoutpost.com/1007582-post12.html

Once the hidden menus are unlocked, use test #2 to test the display.

HTH...

With my Foxwell NT-510 I can access a menu called "clockwork" and it will illuminate every dash light and instrument cluster in order then all at once. Not sure what it is listed as under ISTA-d

You can do that yourself just using the cluster button like wpoll is describing. The "secret" menus...
