How to Change the Language Settings for a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

The 2007 Chevrolet Silverado is sold in all three North American markets. For this reason, it is equipped with a feature to change the display language. The Silverado is available in English, Spanish and French. You can change the language setting on all 2007 to 2010 Silverado models.

Some models are equipped with a DIC (Driver's Information Center). If your Silverado is equipped with this feature, you'll see a row of four buttons on the dashboard, next to the steering wheel.

Without DIC

Insert your key and turn the ignition to "On," or crank the engine.

Press the trip odometer toggle stem until the odometer read is displayed (vehicle mileage). Release the stem.

Press and hold the stem for three seconds. This will display the current language (the default is English).

Press and hold the stem again to cycle through the languages. When the display reaches the language you want to set as the default, release the stem. Turn your ignition off.

With DIC

Insert your key and turn your ignition to the "On" position.

Press the customization button on the DIC control panel until "Display Language" appears. Press the "Set" button to enter the language menu.

Press the customization button to toggle through the languages. When you find the language you want to set as the default, press the "Set" button.
