Question Multiple Displacement System (MDS)

I have yet to see an alert on my EVIC when the Multiple Displacement System (MDS) is in use. My uncle says his has some sort of alert (maybe next to the speed control symbol) that comes on when the MDS is in use.

Anyone else?

I don't believe there is any indication anywhere except surging

That's correct if you have a 08 or earlier model - I think. The new EVIC is supposed to - I think - display something when MDS is in use. I know someone else is having this issue with their 09... I think I'll just have to stop by the dealer.

I've never seen it on the trucks. I have seen it on MDS 5.7L LX cars in the EVIC.

I haven't seen this on my 08 1500 Big Horn. I feel it though when I am in town as the truck seems to be sluggish when crusing at 25mph almost as if on 4 cylinders and then if I push on the accelerator a bit more it catches up like all 8 cylinders just kicked in. On the highway I can't really feel it but I can see the gas miles change as it is engauged.

no indicator light on my 07, just the sound and tach jumping up and down.

Default MDS ECO light

On my 12 model you go into a settings menu all the way to the bottom and you can choose whether it displays the ECO symbol or not. Might just be turned off.

If I'm not mistaken, the MDS wont kick in until 40+ mph. My 07 300C didnt have a light that showed when the MDS came on.
