    Default light on dash

    hi guys need some advice
    bought another vectra yesterday as my last one got wrote off
    seems like id got a bargain 05 plate 1.9cdti sxi full service his tons of receipts including new clutch and dual mass fly timing belt ect car is in really sound nick apart from it had thrown an engine management light checked egr was coked up tried cleaning but it was knackered i replaced the egr today and fault gone .... one problem
    the light on the dash that usually shows u a bulb out or the spanner sign hasn't lit up at all didn't notice this at the time doesn't light up to show u the doors open or anything
    i may be mistaken but it looks like its not even a light just a blank bit of plastic but maybe this is just because it isn't working is there a fuse i can check to control this light ?
    all other lights are working fine
    i presume the six still has this light its the sat nav version with the screen in the middle ?

    The spanner light (orange/yellow) should go out after a few seconds when you turn the ignition on, without starting.

    The other warning light you mention is red, and show until you close the door/hatch.

    What's happening? It's not clear in you post.

    What did you have before?
    Sounds like this SXi does not have the driver info centre (in the Rev counter)
    I noticed this on a relatives Vectra when I compared it

    i had a standard 54 plate cdti this is wat confused me it showed when bulbs were out minor faults and doors were open
    this one hasn't lit up once and kinda looks like it doesn't have a screen (not as shiny as the right hand one) but this is the sxi i thought it would have more not less
    it has the big screen above the stereo version

    Bulb warning light is elsewhere in the speedo binacle. Top centre, between the door and boot light.

    Unless you've got an auto gearbox, or the full check control system, then the rev counter LED display won't show a lot.
