S2 Dash (red) warning light

PostPost by: CG901 » Tue Jul 01, 2014 10:24 pm

I can't find this warning light on the S2 wiring diagram or S2 dashboard layout. I have a red lens directly under my oil pressure / water temp gauge (LHD far left side of dashboard) with black and green wires. Anybody know what this is? I can't get it to light up, and the filament in the bulb appears to be intact. If it has no use, I will use the hole for a toggle switch operating a cooling fan. Thanks.

I see a 'handbrake warning light' on the S4 dash in that approximate position, but not on the S1-S3. This is the only light on that side of the dash.

OK, thanks. Seeing multiple versions of the S3 wiring diagram, with one showing this handbrake warning light. Must have been optional on the S1 with their smaller dash.
