Default dash board

96 bonneville se

On the dashboard there is a symbol that looks like the car...... I guess it is to show you, what door is open, when the trunk is open, and things like that........
Is that what is supposed to happen in the real world? or does so style cars not have that option, and they just put the same dash in all cars.......
If you think mine should work, where would I go to see if something is blown or not working.....
Im sure that there is probably a name for this display....But I am not sure....
Thanks again.....
All answers have been great.....

If we knew what model you drove, we could answer this one. Without knowing the model you drive... sorry it might be broke, it might not.

You are referring to the dirver information center, or DIC. If you have the outline of your car showing in the DIC, you also have the features you mention. Is any part of the display working, or are you seeing nothing lit up at all?

Not always Roy...

Yooo Pat/Justin... what does the SE have with the car outline area, isn't it just a couple lights for check engine and low washer fluid?

And the SSE/SSEi dash would tell you everything including which light bulbs are out.

The dash board in my 96 SE shows washer fluid, check gauges, thats it....... I try to open a door, to see if it shows me door ajar and nothing....... Guess my SE is not equipped with that feature..... So I guess the DIC is working fine.

It is a little photo at replacement. On itself dash board to change miles in km it is necessary to change the central payment. Then will be changes in "Driver information" Arrows act in film very easily, it is necessary to pull simply them on itself. The meter panel already on the car is calibrated.
