Doesn't work in Verna and Elantra
It is quite surprising. One of my friends has a Verna and has seen this procedure documented in his Service Book (!!!). Even he doesnt seem to get this working. It doesnt work in my Elantra as well. It would have been such a useful feature for most of our cars if this feature existed.

this feature was demonstrated to my by the person who came to explain me the features of the car. I was pleasantly surprised by this feature. Have been using it since.
This is my first post. I just purchased a new Logan DLE (base version) from Global Gallarie, thane and registered the same in pune. Driven around 1900 kms in roughly 25 days. Will give a detailed report on the vehicle in one of the posts.
So far so good. The vehicle is performing as per its promise though i have faced a lot of niggles here and there. I will mention it in the my report.

Am truly fascinated by this post of yours. A colleague owns the same version and we just tried this out now and it worked like a charm. He didn't know it existed, till i bumped into this thread this morning.
Thanks for the tip!

just some issues here regarding to the accuracy of the litres. i had 9 lts in the tank previous to filling it up. I put in 36.40 lts in (1400 bucks). the total fuel should have been around 45 /46 lts. However it showed 50 lts.
After having driven around 110 kms after the fill, the vehicle read is showing 45 lts with one notch down in the fuel meter. the only thing i did wrong i guess is kept the engine running while the fuel was being filled. Earlier whenever i had filled in the fuel the vehicle was in the off position. :-).
Maybe some senior here might help out and tell us the reason behind this anamoly. :-)

Secret menu in new age cars
All the new age cars come with digital read-outs in the dashboard/instrument console and display a variety of information - ODO, trip meters, Fuel economy, DTG, etc. Well, there is every chance that there are hidden/secret menus in these cars that display additional information or self diagnostics. Mainly used by service engineers but these are not as elaborate as the OBD info.
Well, i am sharing one such menu for Logan 1.6 Petrol.(My friend observed what the service guy was doing). Here is the sequence to get into the menu.
1. While the ignition switch is off, press the trip reset button in the console.
2. Keeping the button pressed, switch on the ignition (donīt start the car)
This will initiate the self diagnostics - the cluster meters go full scale back and forth and so on...
Then you get the secret menu. Navigate through the menu entries using the button on the side stalk. I dont remember the exact menus but it includes the amount of fuel left in the tank in terms of litres.
I request members to post any such menus for any cars in this thread.
Mods: I searched the forum and could not find any thread with the above information. Please move/merge to the appropriate forum if i had missed it.

Whoa!!! couldn't even think about this. But my question is, why do the secret menu's even exist? Why can't the manufacturers provide in regular menu? Is it something like to hide it now & provide as feature enhancement in future? I would be glad to learn the contributions on this thread.

Hidden Diagnostic menu.
To get into the self diagnosis mode
1. Put the key into the ignition hole
2. Turn the key into ON position so the dashboard lights illuminates (No starting of engine)
3. Press and hold the OFF button, then press the MODE button more than 4 times within 2seconds
4. The you can see the Display unit of a/c illuminates like in the video and display codes starts blinking.
5. Now the diagnosis starts
6. press the A/C button to proceed to next step
7. after completion it will come into the original condition
8. Incase if you wants to quit anytime press OFF button
Here are the other codes which will display if any of the component related to F.A.T.C malfunctions.
00 = Normal
11 = In-car temparature sensor open
12 = In-car temparature sensor short
13 = Ambient temparature sensor open
14 = Ambient temparature sensor short
17 = Evaporator temparature sensor open
18 = Evaporator temparature sensor short
19 = Temparature control actuator feed back open
20 = Temparature control actuatore failure

This is rather nice feature, though it's unlikely to get people to forget about the Logan's looks.

This is OT here but nevertheless:
I own a Suzuuki Grand Vitara and after reading this I tried something on my vehicle. The GV has a multi function display that shows the fuel average and normally you can toggle between instant average and cumulative average.
Today I kept the reset button pressed and switched on the ignition. After that I was able to toggle the output on fuel average from mile/gallon (MPG) to Lt/100Kms to Kms/Lt. I do not recall this documented anywhere in the manual.
