Fuel Gauge On Aygo

Recommended Posts

I have a new Aygo, when fuel is used, does the dark colour of fuel gauge display reduce in height ?

On my car it does, the dark section is broken into segments that reduce in height.

When you get down to just two segments its time to think about filling up as the next stage is a flashing single segment.

The rate at which it flashes is an indication of how much fuel is left but its easy to misread and run out. Which is what happened to me!!!

Does anyone have any idea of how many miles you have left, once the single segment starts to flash.

Thanks in advance

I think when I ran out it was after about 40 miles, but of course it will be dependent upon driving style and you noticing when it starts to flash as there is no light or audible warning.

I think you are correct, but I'm going to say that as a 'Sport' version, they deleted the buzzer to save weight!!

The beep has been there since 2005. It's the same buzzer as the light-reminder and the seatbelt-warning, only a different tone.

The seatbelt-beep can be switched off through a sequence of switching and pushing, the other tones can't.

So when the 2nd to last bar disappears the beep should go off and

will keep doing so everytime you turn on the ignition untill you fill up.

According to my manual you should be able to get about 30 mi on the flashing

bar, but I woul'n't take that chance. I personally filled up every 300 to 350 mi.

Hi Jan,

I didn't know that it was possible to switch off the seal belt buzzer. How do you do that? Is there somewhere you can point me to obtain this information?

Thanks

How it's done:


• first set the ignition ON
• set the distance counter to ODO by pressing the distance counter knob
• set the ignition OFF
• set the ignition ON again
• press the distance counter knob again for 10 seconds
• close the seatbelt and keep the distance counter knob pressed in
• the display of the distance counter will show the tekst: "b - on"
• release the distance counter knob again
• press the distance counter knob again shortly to switch between:
"b - on" and "b - off" and set it to "b - off"
• set the ignition OFF again
• modification done

Not that I recommend this action.

Sit in seat, pull seat belt across chest and lap and insert in to buckle.

Sorry, couldn't resist. :laughing:

Yep, follow instructions above will turn it off.

The procedure is correct. It will only turn off the BUZZER, the light on the dashboard will keep illuminating.

Yes, thanks Jan. It's the irritating buzzer that I want to lose. Sometimes I have to get in and out of the car quite frequently (not on a public road) and buckling/unbuckling isn't practical but I hate listening to that buzzing noise.
