Pressing and Holding Odometer Button

I have noticed that if I press and hold the odometer button for a long time the mileage reading changes and displays hr1577. What does this mean?

I'm not certain but I imagine this is the number of hours your vehicle has been on.

Check it again at the end of the week and see if it makes sense.

I have the EVIC on mine and that is where the hour meter is located. Not sure about the standard dash but the odometer with EVIC doesn't come up with that kind of reading when holding down the odo button.

I have the EVIC on mine too, European this button changes between the Standard Odometer and the to Trip meters - I will look again and see if the reading has changed.
