    When I have the car started and press and hold the button to the left of the DIS it flicks through all the possible warning symbols.

    Is this some kind of test feature?

    Funny you saying that - I did that today as well while changing the clock - yep, it's a test function - a bit like the check option in the DIS menu, but this does all of them in one hit.

    Yes it is a tester button,
    but if you do have a fault press and hold and it will give you a message on the course of action to take
    ie if the oil warning symbol appears press and hold and you get SWITCH OFF ENGINE AND CHECK OIL!

    Perhaps you will excuse the stupid question, but doesn't it tell you in the manual?

    Nothing on page 11 in my Sportback manual but I assume it's in connection with the Radio-controlled clock which is not fitted to UK models.

    hehe, thought someone might pick up on that. I had a good look round and couldn't find anything about enabling it, only that its there and shown by a little ariel mast on your dash display.

    This was in the S3 manual
