Engine coolant temperature gauge

All vehicles

Shows the temperature of the engine coolant. At normal operating temperature, the needle will remain in the centre section.

CAUTION:
Do not restart the engine until the cause of overheating has been resolved.

If the needle enters the red section, the engine is overheating. Stop the engine, switch the ignition off and determine the cause once the engine has cooled down. See Engine coolant check.

Fuel gauge

The arrow adjacent to the fuel pump symbol indicates on which side of the vehicle the fuel filler cap is located.
