Rev indicator problems

hi,

I just purchased a 2008 honda civic 2.2 type s and noticed that the rev indicator (the one next to the speedo) is not working. I read through the manual and switced it on and also tried switching off the eco indicator whilst leaving the rev indicator on but i still got nothing.

what could be the problem? thanks

They only work when you're near the red line, about 6k revs in my 1.8

As yours is a diesiel it won't be the same revs, but the principle is the same

so the rev lights only work when the rev counter is in the red area?

Near enough, think you get 2 lights on 500rpm under the red or something like that.
Hardly see mine on the 2.2.
Next time your out just over rev it once its warm.

It will light when its in neutral.
and dont forget to turn the eco lights back on.

In my Type R you need to be around 6500 rpm for them to start lighting up and all of them light up at 8400 rpm. A nice touch would be if they flashed twice at peak revs but they dont.

They don't come on in my 2.2 either. They are defintely on in the on board computer and I've tried revving past 4000rpm and still no hint of a flash. Is this a common fault?
Having just recently bought the car i have read on here that the Celtic remap on the Derv can cause an issue with the RPM lights. Could my car be remapped? (wishful thinking )

Have you tried over reving it? Warm obviously.
Motorway, hold 2nd gear long time.
Ive had 70 out of 3rd and it was still pulling.

Sorry Im a total Noob... just getting to know the forum but better not to start a new thread and 'clutter' the forums

I've floored it in 2nd to 60mph and not even 1 flash. Its definitely selected as on in the computer as i checked before and afterwards. Also found that menu can only be accessed with the hand brake up, Was wondering why it wasnt showing up!

No slippage noticed so far. I did have boost gauge running from the obd port which reckons I max out at 1.2 bar. Is that normal cdti boost pressure? Thats around 17 psi

Honda Civic Hatchback MKVIII Dash with gauge cluster test
----------------------------------------*-------------------------------------
Before doing the self-diagnostic function, check the No. 10 (7.5 A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box and No. 16 (15 A) fuse in the under-hood fuse/relay box.

1. Push and hold the SEL/RESET switch button.

2. Turn the headlights ON.

3. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

4. Within 5 sec., turn the headlights OFF, then ON and OFF again.

5. Within 5 sec., release the SEL/RESET switch button, and then push and release the button three times repeatedly.

NOTE:
•While in the self-diagnostic mode, the dash lights brightness controller operates normally.

•While in the self-diagnostic mode, the SEL/RESET button is used to start the Beeper Drive Circuit Test and the Gauge Drive Circuit Check.

•If the vehicle speed exceeds 2 km/h (1.2 mph) or the ignition switch is turned OFF, the self-diagnostic mode ends.
