    confused Small dome?

    Whats the small dome thing in the centre of my dash right up near the screen?

    The hire car Insignia had it and it was a led flashing to say alarm is armed?

    But this one is just blank?

    Its on a 52 plate GSI

    Thanks guys

    It's an infrared 2KW laser for blowing the heads off car thieves.

    Or it might be the sun sensor for the aircon.

    As Phil said it's the sun sensor for the Climate Control. It detects if the sun is coming from the side and cools that side additionally.

    The Air Quality sensor is in the front lower grille. It detects if there's exhaust fumes etc. entering the intake and if of a high enough level it will turn the air distribution mode to recirculate automatically. All standard on my Signum Elite as well.

    Despite me having the setting enabled, it's never automatically kicked in regardless of what odours are outside the car, be it cow crap, exhaust fumes, or anything else that has a nasty niff. How bad has the smell gotta be before it will operate?

    Dunno as I've noticed the same as well! lol Never noticed it kick in, although I'm not sure if you actually see anything i.e. recirc light come on or if it just does it without indication. I'm assuming it's mostly noxious fumes like exhaust that will activate it, although some country smeels can be just as heanious! lol

    What I have noticed at times when I've hooked up my Vaux-COM is that the air quality sensor has often registered a fault code, so I'm wondering if mine is needing replaced or wiring checked. Could be the same with yours?
