1. Temperature gauge Once the engine coolant has reached its normal operating temperature, the pointer will rise to a position within the WHITE segment of the gauge (the precise position will vary according to climatic conditions).
If the pointer moves towards the RED segment, this indicates that the engine coolant is becoming too hot. Should the pointer move INTO the RED segment and the RED warning light within the gauge illuminates, severe engine damage could occur (under these circumstances, the air conditioning may switch off and engine performance may reduce in order to minimize engine load).
Stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits and allow the engine to idle for five minutes in order to cool down - DO NOT SWITCH OFF. Seek qualified assistance before continuing.
2. Tachometer Indicates engine speed in revolutions per minute (x 1000). In normal driving conditions the engine is most fuel efficient between 2000 and 3000 rev/min.
The vehicle is equipped with a system which automatically restricts the number of engine revolutions per minute once the engine's maximum ‘governed’ speed has been reached.
3. Speedometer Indicates road speed in miles and kilometres per hour.
4. Fuel gauge The pointer drops to zero when the starter switch is turned off, but quickly rises to show the level of fuel in the tank when the switch is turned to position ‘II’. After refuelling, the gauge rapidly rises to reflect the increase of fuel in the tank.
When the fuel remaining in the tank is approximately 3.75 gallons (14 liters), the AMBER low fuel warning light in the fuel gauge
illuminates. If the light illuminates, refuel at the first opportunity.
