    A friend driving my 09 4X4 I4 said the indicator for 0 rpms was glowing blue as she was driving it. the blue light was intermittent. I can find nothing about it. Was she seeing things or is it for real? I'm planning a very long trip next week and need to know if it's a potential problem. thanks.

    Kick that crazy gal to the curb. She's bad news dude. She's making you think there's things wrong with your truck when there really isn't anything wrong at all. She's gonna turn you into a hypochondriac.

    I read the thread from the comment regarding the blue light under the 0 tachometer... I'd just like to add that I saw this same blue light this past weekend. My cruise is set at 80, air conditioning is running when suddenly the rectangle that signifies the 0 tachometer lights up bright blue- this is during the day, full sunlight. My husband is sitting next to me in the passenger seat- he sees the blue light also. It lasts about 10 seconds then is gone. He googles looking for what this light could be... nothing... but this blog.
    Your girlfriend isn't crazy... me and my husband both saw it, but only once.
