    Check Control

    i've tried looking in the brochure and manual but cant answer this...

    does the astra H SRi have a check control system (e.g warning for low fluids/bulbs blown etc(

    I was under the impression it but mine has twice run out of washer fluid and it hasn't shown any warnings at all?


    Any ideas?

    When i swapped the MFD for a CID it displays on the screen with a picture. Mine always comes up with washer low and coolant but thats because i dont have the sensors.

    i thought mine would display the pictures as mine has the (not colour) but graphical screen for climate control etc.
    just not sure if the sri has it as standard,

    would removing a bulb set it off as i could just test it with that?

    will give that a go then, if it shows on the screen that the bulb is gone i presume my washer bottle sensor must be broke, if not then it doesnt have check control?

    I have a 2005 SRi CDTi and as I have a leak in the washer fluid pipe it's always coming up with a washer fluid level warning, so presuming that the SRi's have the check? I only have the MFD with orange text, so not top spec model...guess I'll find out one day about the bulb and brake wear checks!

    well after i unplugged my rear light a while ago and got no warnings at all? so from that i presume it doesn't have it,

    im sure i once had the coolent warning come up though (went away straight away) so presumed it had it,

    and if above is right with a 2005 sri having it, seems odd a 2008 doesn't?
