    Check control system

    Tells you when your washer fluid is low,brake fluid,engine oil,bulbs are blown

    There are sensors on washer bottle and i think brake fluid not sure what else,i just need to know what they look like and what the plug looks like

    ** = Check control warning display features engine oil
    level, engine coolant level, automatic transmission
    control (where fitted), front brake pad wear, windscreen
    washer fluid level, bulb test for head/tail and brake
    lights, and brake lights fuse. Trip computer features
    instantaneous and average fuel consumption, fuel
    consumed, average speed, distance travelled and range
    based on fuel remaining.

    Might be that they all have it fitted as standard but ive never ever had a warning light come on about washer fluid

    Is there any way of checking the spec of my car to see if this was all fitted ?

    disconnect the plug at the bottom of the coolant resovoir or take out a bulb somewhere - should see a pic of a radiator or bulb on the display. From what I've seen Check control can either be a basic system which uses the display in the rev-counter (where you see door open or EML), or more advanced using the GID/CID.

    Basic systems don't appear to have all sensors like washer fluid level, but do have bulb failure, coolant level etc. In a basic system the Bulb failure is also basic - Bulb and exclamation mark (not which bulb), the more advanced use of GID/CID tells you which bulb to check (LEFT BRAKE etc).

    Had my Trip computer activated by the dealer, and it automatically turned on check control. however without a sensor on the washer bottle the display kept saying check washer level. Dealer then decided to disable the check control feature. I'm left with the basic option - display on the rev counter.
