2022 Ford E450 instrument display question

We have the new E450 chassis with the 7.3 and 6 speed transmission.

Does anyone know how to get the transmission gear display to appear in the upper left corner. For many thousands of miles we have had the gear indicator display there but now it is gone and we don't know how to get it back. The manual is no help. This is a display of the current gear and the top gear like 1/6, 2/6/, 3/6, 4/6, 5/6, 6/6. If you put the transmission in Manual the current gear will appear but we know the display can show the 1/6, etc. while in drive.

The new instrument display (when Ford switched to the Godzilla engine) is similar to the F-series. My 2017 F-150 has a vertical display to the right of the speedo showing current gear, 1 through 10 in my case.

Although the displays are different, the SELECTION process to get the display to show may be the same... or at least similar.

On my F-150 there is a "+/-" button on the column shifter stalk. With the shifter in "D" (Drive) press the + or - to get different shift modes... or turn it on/off as desired. Messing around with it, it's pretty intuitive.

Hope that helps!

That is how our 2022 is. +- button.

I drove a while wondering what those numbers meant.

My 2021 is the same way, I lost mine one day and found if I use the + button it brings it back.
