Gear Change Indicator

Recommended Posts

Recently bought a new Auris.

In the instrument panel there are two indicator lights to indicate that a gear change should be made- very irritating.

Is there any simple way to turn these off?

Any advice would be appreciated!

Not that I'm aware of. Strange you find them irritating :)

The only one I know is to remove the speedo, open it up and put some black tape in front of the two green lights on the inside. Sounds tricky but it isn't. If you're interested, I can post some sort of a DIY guide :)

Dismantling the spedo to block the light seems a bit more trouble than I had hoped for.

Clipping a cable or removing a fuse would be more agreable :unsure:

Not sure if there are any short cuts but the garage can access this setting through their com diagnostic tool.
