No. This is a part of the IPC and the vehicle configuration in the BCM would have to be changed, which, due to your VIN, will not allow for programming. The IPC is VIN burnt, as is the BCM.

SOURCE: Drivers Information Center in a 2005 Chevy Impala

Turn the key to the on position (not start) with the radio off. Wait 10 seconds. Press the "display" button on the radio and hold for 10 to 12 seconds. the radio display will light up . Press "display" and "1" to select functions.

This was not tested or confirmed by me, but my dad has a 2005 Impala and this is what he told me. Let me know if it works or not, and I can try to investigate it more if needed.

I am assuming that the DIC does not "power-up" at all.

Check your owner's manual to see which fuse powers the DIC. If the fuse is OK, you need to get your hands on a wiring diagram and remove the DIC from the dash so you can check to see if you have a good ground on the ground wire to the DIC. Then check to make sure you have battery voltage to the B+ circuit to the DIC. If the proper voltage and ground are present, you will have to take the DIC to your local dealer for repair. Many GM dealers have an exchange program where you can turn your old DIC in and get a "remanufactured" one on the spot. Others will send your DIC out for repair and call you when it is returned to them.

In order to change between English/French press and hold the Mode button for more than 3 seconds .
There are 2 buttons on the DIC.

What caused the tracking control light to turn on?


If the system fails to turn on or activate, the StabiliTrak®

light along with one of the following messages will be

displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC):

TRACTION CONTROL OFF, SERVICE TRACTION

CONTROL, SERVICE STABILITRAK. If you see these

conditions, turn the vehicle off, wait 15 seconds, and then

turn it back on again to reset the system. If any of these

messages still appear on the Driver Information Center
(DIC), your vehicle should be taken in for service.

1999 Pontiac Montana DIC is dead. Got one from junk yard and get only "--" for data. Any help? Do these have to be factory repaired?


You can try performing a diagnostic self-test of the DIC.

In order to perform the diagnostic self-test and reset the driver information display, simultaneously press the following buttons for at least 2 seconds :

MODE
ENGLISH/METRIC
The reset is acknowledged with the display showing all segments ON for 1 second . You may only reset the following modes. The reset affects all 3 of these modes simultaneously:

AVG ECON
FUEL USED
AVG SPEED

If all of the segments light as described above, but the same symptoms are still present follow these instructions:

Symptom: Driver Information Center (DIC) Always Displays Dashes

1. Check for a poor connection or an open in circuit 800 (Tan wire) between the DIC connector terminal 15 and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) connector C1 terminal 15.
2. If a problem is found with the circuit in step 1, repair the circuit and retest. Otherwise continue to step 3.
3. Replace the DIC and retest

What does a c on the dic mean?


Your vehicle has a Driver Information Center (DIC).
All messages will appear in the DIC display located
below the speedometer in the instrument panel cluster.
The DIC buttons are located on the instrument panel,
to the left of the instrument panel cluster.
The DIC comes on when the ignition is on. After a short
delay, the DIC will display the information that was
last displayed before the engine was turned off.
The DIC displays trip, fuel, and vehicle system
information, and warning messages if a system problem
is detected. The bottom line of the DIC shows the
shift lever position indicator. See Automatic
Transmission Operation on page 3-23
for more
information.
If your vehicle’s DIC has these features, the compass
direction and the outside air temperature may also
display on the DIC when viewing the trip and fuel
information. The compass direction appears on the top
right corner of the DIC display. The outside air
temperature automatically appears in the bottom right
corner of the DIC display. If there is a problem with the
system that controls the temperature display, the
numbers will be replaced with dashes. If this occurs,
have the vehicle serviced by your dealer/retailer.
The DIC also allows some features to be customized.
See DIC Vehicle Customization on page 4-66 for
more information.
