New Potential Owner Advice

I am looking to purchase my first X-Type.

It will be an AWD model and probably from the budget end. I am recently separated and have limited funds, so it will have to be sub £1500.

 

I have seen this car on eBay, it has a light on, on the dash but I can't find what it means. Here is a link to the Pic $_57.JPG

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks

Chris

Located above the message center are two lamps, red for warning and amber for caution. When a message is displayed, the appropriate
lamp will illuminate to attract the driver's attention and to signify the importance of the message.  this is all i can find on this issue. put if this light does stay on it needs to be addressed as there ls a problem in the electrical system.

Thanks David. That's about all I could find too.

I think I'll pass on this one and find another

Although in my current price range they all seem to have some sort of electrical problem or another

Hi Steve, no I didn't. It's a car listed on eBay.

I thought there was a separate light, top left, for a door open?

In the end I decided to have a flutter on it bit I was outbid

this may help, I don't know anything about any of them of course, however if anything takes your fancy, and you have questions, ask away! plenty of very knowledgeable people in the JOC

Thanks Steve I am constantly on Auto Trader and eBay looking for potential purchases.

By the way I would remove those links as, for some reason, the Auto Trader site seems to remember your full postcode :o

No problem Steve

I just noticed the cars were nowhere near me and then that there was a postcode in there, which I assume was yours?

I'm going to have a look at a 2.5 SE Auto tomorrow morning. It's not too far from me and seems to have everything bar a heated front screen.

Looks a good car, I'll put up pics, if I buy it
