    Default Interesting warning light!!!

    I keep getting a warning light come up that looks like the one you get when a bulb has gone, but with an exclamation mark "!" in the middle and I can't seem to find it in the manual, anyone any suggestions? It comes up intermittantly.

    Is it when you press the brake?

    That was my first thought so I got a friend to press the pedal with the engine running and the brake lights seem fine. It seems to come on more randomly than that and for longer periods the further you drive.

    It's the bulb replacement symbol - it should tell you what bulb in the display above the stereo (assuming you've got the graphical display and not just the three line job)

    The randomness could be due to a bulb on it's way out or dodgy/dirty connection.

    Unfortunately I have a simple SXi with no graphical display. What should I do, just wait for something to go pop?

    If you can't see any current failure, then I suppose all you can do is wait for something to go. What you could do though is go around each bulb, remove it and give the contacts on the bulb and socket a clean (check for any oxidisation etc.). That may sort out any issue.
