It signifies that you're confusing the system and the lights staying out and the speedo working are a result of this confusion.

With the front of the vehicle raised you aren't bringing the whole system into play as the rear wheels aren't moving.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
