    My 2014 Prius display screen suddenly has Consumption and other associated metrics. It appeared without warning and I can't seem to make it return to the display for my radio station (Bluetooth). I am not aware of pressing any buttons or changing any settings and nothing seems to work to restore it. The Display Audio System Manual isn't helpful (Prius is a wonderful car but the owner's manuals suck!) HELP!!

    Scroll through the “Disp” button on your steering wheel controls. You’ve inadvertently switched it to the Consumption screen.

    Just push the Audio button on the left of the console and the screen should return to the radio controls.

    You pressed the Car button.

    Press the Audio button.

    Easy peasy.

    I have no idea what that is or how to disconnect it. I think the problem is a setting. I may just go to the dealer tomorrow and say, "fix this!"

    first try the other recommendations above. dealers likely gonna charge you, and it may be as simple as pressing the right dash or steering wheel buttons.

    you can also find it in your owners manual. sometimes, i inadvertantly touch a button or switch without knowing it, and can't figure out why something changed.

    that screen is just one of a few available for you to scroll through, using the display button on the wheel.

    Just press the audio button like people keep saying. It'll probably be kind of embarrassing if the dealer does it. ;)
