Any more advice would be great....

Also anyone has it a guess what the orange light with the auto sign on it means ?????
Hi again!! is the car auto???? silly question i know but presumption being the mother of all............, is it petrol or diesel??

I ask as the light indicates different things depending on model, I put an auto dash on my old diesel, as it had a rev counter!!!!, but went to the trouble of changing the strips insde to correspond with what i had on my old car.

if it's auto and petrol i'm guessing the auto transmition fluid is low, however if it's diesel, the amber auto lamp is the glowplug pre heating light, so the heaters are on, constantly. this could just be a relay. glowplugs should pre heat for 6 to 8 seconds then switch off. if running continuously they'll slaughter a battery in no time!!

post back how you get on!!
