This setup is for use only with the Motec M1 ECU.
The main screen includes dial gauges for Engine Speed and Boost Pressure, a digital gauge for Vehicle Speed and Cruise Control Set Speed, as well as bar gauges for Fuel Pressure, Oil Pressure, Coolant Pressure, and Fuel Composition (ethanol content). Engine Oil Temperature and Coolant Temperature are dial gauges on the right. All gauges change to red when over a threshold and temp gauges are blue when cold. You'll see various aspects of this in the pictures below.
The top left text either indicates no faults, or a description of what's triggering the check engine light.
Below that, on the left the 'Steering Wheel Switch' position is shown, this is usually tied into your boost and/or torque settings, but ultimately that comes down to the tuner's choice of setup. On the right the Trans R mode state is shown.
In addition to your gauges, you have indicator icons for low battery voltage, low oil pressure, airbag warning light, seat belt warning light, parking brake engaged, left and right turn signals, high beams, check engine light, low fuel light, traction control off light (Motec TC, not the OE system), and 4WD light.
The odometer value is set in the Motec M1, you can set it as you wish, follow the instructions in M1 Tune. The trip meter resets using the trip reset button on the cluster.
Note the 3 pages of bar gauges on the left, you can toggle through these as desired. You can toggle both the left bar gauges and the right gauge options using the top right buttons around the cluster.
The color scheme is configurable by the end user, with a choice of red, blue, or orange. Information on changing these is found at end of instruction and done through Dash Manager.
The Gear Position indicator works just like a stock cluster, with P,R,N, 1A-6A and 1M-6M indications. In the event that the TCM is trying to engage 1st gear or Reverse and it can’t get in, the factory cluster will flash the gear as an indication. This will do the same.
On the left side of the screen warnings will be displayed, these can be warnings programmed into the file by us (triggered based on the Warning Source in the M1), as well as alarms you can setup in Dash Manager. Alarms from Dash Manager will be shown underneath the Engine Mode text.
Below shows the gauges in red, due to being over set thresholds.
When your FWD clutch is disabled (when the M1 is doing FWD control only), the screen will have a blue background, making it obvious you're in burnout mode and to remind you to switch out before racing!
Again, both the left bar gauges and the right gauge options using the top right buttons around the cluster.
The HP/TQ gauges are shown here. In the Dash Manager calibration, there's a user scale adjustment for this. A value of 100 will make the HP gauge get to the end of the dial at 1000hp. A value of 50 will make it reach the end of the gauge at 2000hp, so you can adjust the range to suit your build. Below is an example of the scale at 50, and 1000hp.
Below is the same HP/TQ, with the scale at 100.
Another gauge setup on the right is the TPMS view screen. Note, this also shows the left bar gauges in a warning area.
If you are not using TPMS sensors, you can disable the TPMS function from within Motec Dash Manger. If you are using TPMS, this system works differently than stock in that we’ve allowed a user configurable pressure threshold for each tire, so if you’re using drag radials at low pressure, you can lower the threshold to prevent the TPMS light from coming on. If the system reads a tire pressure below the threshold, it will light the TPMS icon. From there you can toggle to the TPMS screen to see the status of each tire.
This page shows the friction circle, this moves in real time based on vehicle dynamics. It reaches the end of the circle in any direction at 1G.
When the fuel level gets below 25%, the low fuel icon will illuminate and the bar will turn yellow. An additional alarm will pop up on the top left indicating low fuel below 10% (user adjustable in Dash Manager). Note, the temperature gauges are in light blue, indicating they're below temp and you should warm things up more before racing. Also note the Oil Pressure Sensor Fault on the top left.
Here you have temps up to normal, shown in green, but coolant pressure high and the M1 has triggered a warning as shown on the top left, and the bar gauge has gone red.
When Cruise Control is activated, your cruise set speed will be displayed below the gearbox position.
Within Dash Manger you can change multiple parameters:
There is a switch in Dash Manager to change units to metric, change User Metric to 1. This will change temp to Celsius and speed to Kilometers. It will not change pressure units, as there are too many options there. If you would like specific units, please reach out to us by email.
- You can set your TPMS low thresholds
- Disable the TPMS warnings (1 to disable)
- Choose your wallpaper color. 0 for yellow, 1 for blue, 2 for red
- Disable the seatbelt indicator (1 to disable)
- Disable the airbag indicator (1 to disable)
- Adjust User Horsepower Scale (100% = 1000hp at end of range, 50% = 2000hp at end of range, etc)
- **Do not adjust GTR Constant 1 or G Meter constants.
- These are found under Calculations / Constants in Dash Manager.
Your alarms and shift lights can be setup as desired in Dash Manager. These will display under Engine Mode and above the first bar graph, in red text.
How long they stay active is based on settings in Dash Manager.
