Hi,
Our dash only seems to indicate when to change up a gear not down a gear?

I can't seem to find a setting for this, it's either on or off from what I cant tell, so does this mean there is something wrong with the computer?

Thanks,
1DMF

Hi 1DMF,
Not that I take any notice of it but my 1.4 Petrol Rio onlygives a "change-up" indication.
What engine do you have in your Rio?
I have a feeling that it might only be the diesel-engined cars that have a "change-down" indication.
The vehicle handbook is a bit vague.

It's the 1.4 petrol rio 3


The handbook seems to indicate it should show both up and down for all models unless there's a disclaimer in tiny print somewhere!

I think the "if equipped" statement acts as a disclaimer.
As I said earlier for many of the cars features the detail given in the handbook is very vague.

Mine pretty much only tells me to change down, not quite used to the torque reduction from my Audi just yet obviously!
