If you press the odometer reset button on the gauge cluster you will hear a beep and then a second beep confirming that the trip odometer has beed cleared.

If you keep pressing the button down with the key on the off position and just turn the key to the on position (no need to start the engine really) you will hear a third beep confirming that you entered diagnostic mode.

The first test is the gauge and LED test.

If you want keep switching the reset button to see all other tests that include stuff like volts, revs, temp, speed, sensors etc with a digital readout!

Once the key goes back to the off position, it exits diagnostic mode and goes back to normal.

I know this is a hella old thread bump, but does anyone have/know of a video of how this works in Escapes? I've heard about this "feature" before and always wondered how it worked.

Choose the indication you want, without proceeding to the next one.You start the engine and keep driving while the indication you selected stays on all the time showing the variations as you drive.
The same tricky fixture is available on many Ford cars since the beginning of the eighties.At least that is when I first noticed it on my Merkur.
