MY '09 reads 1 through 5 on the EVIC & if nothing is showing, i know it is 5th overdrive & capable of going into Fuel Saver/ECO, (4 cylinder mode)
Yesterday I did a 300 mile round trip over the hill & out into the desert
Going up the hill ECO does not kick in & going down the hill i am in 3rd gear to save brakes, the semi that i escort can only go 35 mph down that hill, that is the speed limit for trucks on that 15 mile long hill. ECO only works in 5th over, my sign above the cab acts like a wind brake, so i don't see it come on a lot
