Is the SPD light on the VS berlina dash actually supposed to light up when the speed alert goes off ?
I took dash out today and to my suprise there was no light behind the SPD symbol.
Unfortunatley while the dash was out i turned the key and now my bloody Air bag light stays on but i have to get the car serviced this week so i will just get my mechanic to fix it.

It should, possibly a dodgy loom was malfunctioning so the previous owner removed the globe so that it wouldn't play up on the new owner...
Stuff like that is done all the time where I used to work :)

Sorry i should have beeen more specific there is no hole for the globe so it cant light up at all.
Is there ment to be a hole there cause i cant imagine why i can see the symbol if it is not meant to light up.
Unless it is for another function only avalible on the calais but i dont know what SPD could stand for unless its the speed alert and mine is working.

You know you can just turn it off lol.
Maybe it just lights up on the calais not the berlina cause i get the beeps but it obviously cant light up without a globe.
I will check to see if my bros works (vr berlina) if so mines jus weird neways thanks guys

Yeah as far as I know the SPD symbol is meant to light up when you go over the preset speed showing in the dash. A warning chime also comes on with the light illuminating, thats what happens in my VS Berlina anyway.

ive got a vs berlina and the light is there for me, maybe your dash part where the globes are in have been replaced with a model other than berlina so the hole is plugged up. Yeh ive just got some dials that ive put in, turned the key without putting it all back to together now gotta go get the damn airbag codes cleared :( i hate it
