    Does somebody know how to change the language that messages are displayed on the LCD on the dash of a 2005 chevy pickup?

    My brother just bought one and there is no owners manual.

    Is there anywhere to download an owner's manual?

    Try scrolling through the DIC until you find something that looks like a language name then press the change or check mark button until you can undestand whats on the screen. Prss enter and you're done. If you don't have the steering wheel controls tan I can't help you. Good luck.

    No steering wheel controls.

    How about the manual on-line, any ideas?

    The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.


    Starting in model year 2003, the IPC/DIC is able to read out in 3 difference languages: English, Spanish, and French. Some questions have been received concerning how to change the DIC Language, mainly on vehicles without steering wheel controls.


    To change between the languages on vehicles with steering wheel controls, follow Document ID # 867116 in SI.

    Vehicles without steering wheel controls follow the procedure below:

    Turn ignition on.
    Use the trip rest stem to display the Odometer on the DIC.
    With the Odometer displayed press and hold down the trip reset stem, after 3-5 seconds the DIC will begin to scroll thru the 3 difference languages.
    Continue to hold down the trip reset stem until the desired language is displayed then release the trip reset stem.
    Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

    GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
