Just sayin' what the gauge is displayin'!

It's up over 7 idle hours now and 1400+ miles on the ticker now. I usually let it idle for about 5 minutes in the morning (Monday - Friday). At MOST, I can account for about an hour of that time. I bought the truck on 15 Jan, I've had it for 13 days. The dealer must have been demonstrating it's awesome idling capabilities...

I've got 13k miles in 10 months, 305 hrs driving, 18 hrs idle, seems about right.

I'm at about 6100 miles with my '13 Big Horn and my "Idle" engine hours is at 13. My "Total" engine hours is at 210. Seems to be working for me, as I remote start quite often and drive in stop and go traffic about 80-85% of the time.

Default Idle hours

I purchased my truck nov 2012, have had multiple issues with radio resets and dash resets. I also noticed that my idle time was always 0. They finally replaced the dash cluster and now the idle time works.

So what is the outcome here?

I have 4300 miles and 0 idle hours. Do I actually take it in and have them fix this? I don't get how many of us have 0 and some actually work. Is it a model thing maybe? I have the express.

I will say, I reset my trip counter daily, so wondering if idle hours reset with that? Just throwing it out there.

Big Horn trim here. Idle engine hours counting works. I reset my trip counter after every gas fill up, so I don't think that should have any influence.

Check out mine. They couldn't fix it, so it's getting a new cluster.
