Ignition indicator light
« on: October 14, 2017 - 11:32:37 am »
I hesitate to ask such a basic question, but where is the Ignition warning (on) light on the dash located. I am slowly bring the dash back to life but cannot see any sign of this. I'm in the UK so can't just check someone elses.

There is no ignition on lamp.... Why would you need one?  We have a exhaust rumble that assures you that the engine is running...

Standard dash gets an E-brake, Low Oil Pressure and High Beam Indicator light. If I remember correctly..

I'm not crazy then - there isn't one! I just have the three other warnings. I'm used to an ignition light to show if the alternator has failed. The volt meter does that job I suppose.

There is no light for the charging system. The factory setup uses a [problematic] ammeter to show where the current supporting the car is coming from. It is typical to bypass the ammeter and use a voltmeter of some sort to monitor the charging system.
