Default Hour meters

On my 13 Ram I have the large EVIC screen and if I go to the one with the engine hours and idle hours my idle hours is stuck at 1 which I know is in correct because my truck idled for about 3 hours straight one night. Does anyone else have/noticed this issue? Is there any easy fix???

I have about 6700 miles on my truck, and the idle hours still say 0 while drive hours say 177. I don't really ever let it idle but I figured sitting at stoplights or something would have got it to 1 by now. Maybe it only counts them if you're in park? I was mildly curious about this myself.

I don't think it works, mine has spent plenty of hours idling in Alberta's winter.

Min says;

Idle 21
Driving 135
Total 156

I know my idle showed more at one point, but I accidentally reset my tripometer so this has been the latest total.

I don't get why they put the idle meter on there if they weren't gonna bother to hook it up. My public safety vehicle is a dodge charger hemi police package and it has a idle hour meter and last check it registered 4350 run hours with 1022 idle hours.

When i sent my truck in to the dealership for some recalls i had them look at this problem too. Mine says 0.

They got on support and was told that the idle counter is only for diesel engines.

That's funny that was the best answer they could conjure up because some guys with hemi engines on other forums actually have hours clocking on their meters. It just kinda bums me out to see a feature that doesn't work Redsmart is your truck a hemi or diesel?

I assume the idle hour meter came about because of all the issues we were having with company trucks and oil changes. They would operate on the 3000 mile interval but the trucks sit and idle all day long. We would see lots of trucks under warranty coming with engines that looked like a severely burnt poptart on the inside haha.

My 10 doesn't have the idle meter but the regular run meter seems to be accurate.
