Default V4 mode icon

I have a 2019 GS M7... I drove it in ECO mode the other day and didn't see any lighted icon indicating that it was in 4 cylinder(AFM) mode. I was sure that my 2017 displayed a green V4 icon when it went inti AFM mode. There is no reference to it in the manual and I don't see an "unlit" icon or a lit one upon start up. It's not a big deal, I would only use it on the highway during a trip...but I would like to know when AFM is activated.

The amber V8/green V4 icon is only displayed on one DIC screen, at least in my M7 car. As I'm not in the car at the moment, but as I remember is it is a sub-screen of the top level screen (I think it's called "Info"?)

Yeah, it's buried in one of the DIC screens . . . maybe the one that shows Avg MPG 25, 50, 500 mi?

I don't think the location has changed over the years, though?

Same place in my '19 GS as it was in my '14 Z51

THANKS EVERYONE...…. I just went out and drove around and you all are correct. I just somehow thought it used to appear in the area where the alerts show.... obviously it doesn't. I don't use ECON mode unless I am on a trip and would probably check it one time to verify that it was in V4 mode. OH WELL, that checks off the last item on my getting reacquainted list...…. first 600 miles have been fun, I'm looking forward to many more..... I hope to see some of you out on the road...…. I'm a "WAVER"!!!!

It is about 4-5 panels over very small green indicator.
