K light on the dashboard

Post by soupapes » Tue Oct 11, 2016 3:23 pm

Hi guys!

My 91' BX 16V does not light the K light in the dashboard when i turn the key in the ignition. I have dissassembled the dashboard but i havent seen any loose wiring available to attach that position.

Is it supposed to have any wiring attached directly in that position, just like the ABS light?

I'm fairly sure the abs light is the only one that is wired directly to the light fitting. Not 100% sure though!

The wire for the K light appears under the dashboard from the separate engine management loom under the RH side carpet in the footwell- which I guess is the passenger side in Portugal.

K light is only present on 3-row ECU cars and cat cars. The earlier 2-row ECU cars don't have one.
