The high-level IPC provides dual RH and LH 4.2" thin film transistor screens to display driver information. The LH display screen contains the virtual gauge displays and message center information. The RH display screen displays multimedia information (audio, phone, navigation and climate control), as well as items such as vehicle direction, outside air temperature and time.

The dual screen message center IPC utilizes mostly virtual gauges. Virtual gauges are video displays that provide information in a unique format. The exception is the speedometer, which is still an analog-type gauge. Each virtual gauge is somewhat different in how it is displayed.

Informational indicators inform the driver of conditions that exist in the vehicle. Warning indicators provide information to the driver of conditions that could potentially cause personal injury or alter vehicle performance.

Message center indicators illuminate in the message center and replace the typical informational or warning indicator, using the same iconic representation. The cruise control message center indicator is in a fixed location while the others display in the order the request was received by the IPC.

Network Messaged Inputs

Module messaging has increased over time and is the standard for sending and receiving information required to operate the IPC. The majority of the inputs required to operate the IPC are received over the CAN.

Hardwired Inputs

The IPC requires hardwired inputs from components that are not on the CAN. These components are required for specific IPC functions.

The hardwired inputs are provided by the following components:

  • fuel pump assembly
  • fuel level sensor (AWD)
