Default check center display troubles??

Anyone got a pic of what the information check center (the car outline symbol on the dash) looks like with key on and ignition off??? There are only a few lights on mine that check when motor is started, check oil level and something else. Shouldnt it show trunk/hood open, tail light/* out, doors open, etc? Mine shows almost nothing with ignition on and motor off so I think thr PO might have removed some bulbs from the display perhaps???

BTW, its a 95 SE.

Doesnt it show door/trunk/hood open, tail/headlight out, etc??? check guages also comes on when gas gets low so I guess its the low gas light as well............just seems like more crap should light up with ignition on/motor off.........

Maybe because yours is a SSEi Sheff??? Mine doesnt have the test button or any digital readout but I gotta believe there'* more than just oil level and check guages on it, otherwise why show the whole car symbol if you dont know a light bulb is out or your door is ajar or other basic functions........just seems strange...........I recently bought the car so maybe the PO took out bulbs/fuses or disconnected a harness to hide any potential trouble indicators.............car runs perfect tho.........
