Default Transmission Gear indicator

I leveled my tuck last weekend with the adjustable bilsteins and disconnected my battery as instructed for the power steering. When i reconnected battery and went for a drive I noticed the lights 1 through 6 that show what gear the trans is in, is not displayed anymore. Does anyone know how to get this back? I read through the owners manual but can't find where the option is. 2012 5.0 auto Screw.

There is a switch on the gear lever to turn it back on.

Oh? So I don't have to go browsing through the never ending list of "apps" in the center screen? That's good news, technology and I don't get along well. haha. Thanks!

I something similar to that happen on mine. The + and - buttons on the gear shifter are what you need to press to get it to show again. I believe the + button should do it.

This is correct
Just a simple tap of the + on the shifter

GearHead84 ... I read through the owners manual but can't find where the option is. ...
It is difficult to find, but it is there .....

Thanks all. Everyone was right....shifted into "D" and pushed the + upshift button and it came right back on. I'll have to read through the owners manual more thoroughly next.
