They have smartlock imoboliser which was excellent in their day. Not the best security now but still good enough to slow or stop novice car thieves. Add a second alarm or kill switch.

Yes. It flashes on the left hand side every few seconds when the car is off or locked.

I think the smartlock light is an LED also so they dont usually blow. Does the car have the original cluster ?
Maybe it has a non smartlock cluster fitted.

That is a globe at least for the power light. 3W wedge globe. I have replaced mine a few times :)

The Ed had a separate 2 pin plug which just did the smartlock jewel... Could've been left unplugged at one stage...

Pull the interior light fuse and see if it starts... Soon tell if smartlock is working (you'll lose the dash clock)...

Cheers,
Tim

Someone may have bypassed it then? Is there a red/orange module bolted above the handbrake? If you can contort onto the drivers floor and look up?

Cheers,
Tim
