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

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.
