No I believe you have to get the revs near to the red sector on the rev counter for them to work.

They should come on for a few seconds when you first turn on the ignition.

its a diesel mate, if driven properly they shouldnt light unless your in a BIG hurry, revving a diesel serves no purpose as they have all the power around 2K revs

get a CTR you see 6 lovely lights that light up from 7400rpm in 200rpm increments. Just to let you know its time for another gear :)

I disagree, maybe in the old diesels that would gasp around 3.5/4k but.. the 2.2 derv engine is the only diesel engine I've driven where you can happily pull through into the red without a loss in power - then change and your immediately bang in the middle of your torque curve.

it may not be a type r but fun can be had up in 3.5/4k range in our tractors LOL.

I noticed a considerable non-happening of action as soon as you pass the 3Ks... apart from it making a lot of noise there isn't much going on after that IMHO

going to disagree here, stuff happens up to 3.5K but after that the power doesnt rise anymore, infact, it stops. look at the derv diagrams from relic. after around 3.5K it just stops as it isnt a bi-turbo configuration for higher revs. and its not needed either for the civic, it pulls like the clappers!
