Inspection lights on cluster???


I read somewhere that there are supposed to be several lights on the instrument cluster that count down to needing service.


Not sure where I saw this but mine does not have them or they are just not working.

BTW I am at -50 on my inspection.

Do I have something broken or just need my inspection counter reset?

Thanks
Alan

The inspection/oil service indicator pops up in the little display on in the center of the gauge cluster every time the car is turned on. It only remains for a few seconds then disappears. At "-50" you need to have your service indicator reset.

Yeah I was wondering about the green, yellow, and red lights that count down till the time to service the car. I have not seen them at all but that may be because I just bought the car.

Thanks. I found out the owners manual I bought from eBay is actually for a 1998 model.

I ordered another one from Bav already to check out the differences.
