Can anyone tell me what the guage is on the bottom right as the needle moves up slightly when starting but then drops to the bottom and thats it.
I have no idea what it is for but i think its oil warning/pressure.

Ok so when it comes on at start up the gauge lights up and the needle moves but once started it looks like the gauge is not working as the gauge is not lit anymore and the needle is resting at the bottom.

Maybe it is all I can make out is a dipstick and what looks like wavey lines.
All i wanna know is what is should be doing when the engine is running :)

Hi. I would say it was an oil level guage. It reads oil level when the ignition is switched on but then goes off when the engine is started. It may stop reading as soon as the oil pressure light goes off. On some models it used to be an oil pressure gauge aswell, so it read oil level before the engine was started and then oil pressure when the engine was running.
