Bought 2014 500L Trekking couple weeks ago. Can't find how to activate the Trip "B" on the instrument panel. Can anyone help?

I don't know whether US models work the same than Euro models. On mine the switch on the tip of the right steering column switch is used to switch between the different modes of the display, like current fuel consumption, distance A, average consumption A, distance B, average consumption B, distance to next fuel stop, and so on.

The instructions are likely in the manual.

With the switch on the end of the wiper stalk, that's how my Abarth works too.

Here's a 500L owner's manual, check out the EVIC instructions around page 172 https://www.fiatusa.com/download/pdf/manuals/2014-FIAT-500L-OM-1st.pdf

Trip Button
The TRIP button, located on the right steering column
stalk, can be used to display and to reset the previously
described values.

A short button press displays the different values.

A long button press resets the system and then starts a
new trip.

To reset:

Press and hold the TRIP
button to reset the system
manually.

When the “Trip distance” reaches 9999.9 miles or
kilometers or when the “Travel time” reaches 999.59
(99 hours and 59 minutes), the system is reset
automatically.

Disconnecting/Reconnecting the battery resets the
system.
NOTE:
If the reset operation occurs in the presence of
the screens concerning Trip A or Trip B, only the infor-
mation associated with Trip A or Trip B functions will be
reset.
Start Of Trip Procedure
With the ignition on, press and hold the
TRIP
button for
over one second to reset.
Exit Trip
To exit the Trip function, wait until all the values have
been displayed or hold the
SET ESC
button for longer
than one second.
Briefly press the
SET ESC
button to go back to the menu
screen or press and hold the
SET ESC
(approximately
one second) to go back to the main screen without storing
settings.

Thanks to all that are trying to help me with this. I am sorry for not mentioning that I down loaded the manual and followed it to try and find trip B without success. I thought maybe I'm missing something. I'm beginning to think that there is a problem in the electronics. I cannot get it to go beyond trip "A". Will keep trying and if unsuccessful, I'll take it to a Studio (new to me as we call them Dealer Service Center). Thanks again as your efforts are truly appreciated.

This Trip "B" function is turned on in the UConnect screen <…>

That's similar to how I've always done it too. But for me it's on my Trekking's UConnect 5.0 display so it looks quite different. On this one it's accessed via the MORE key on the right.

It's just that simple when someone with the know how helps you. Many, many thanks. I now have Trip B.
