The algorithm to trigger the light is the same whether you have EVIC or not. The pedal reset performs the same function. The only difference is that in order to see the percentage left on his you...

I know for sure that it will reset to 100% before the reminder comes on. I did it with my 2014 using the 3 pedal presses with the key in the ON position.
