Multifunction Meter

NOTE: The indicator needles of the multifunction meter's analog dials will sweep from zero to their maximum reading then back to zero when the ignition switch is turned "ON" (or when the battery is reconnected following service).

This is a normal function of this type of meter and is required to calibrate the dials before riding.

  1. Oil pressure warning indicator "": This indicator lights when the oil pressure is below the normal operating pressure.

    The indicator will light when the ignition switch is "ON" and the engine is not running. The indicator should go out when the engine starts (except for some occasional flickering at or near idle when the engine is warm). If the indicator fails to go out completely once the engine is started, consult your KYMCO dealer immediately.

Running the engine on your scooter with insufficient oil pressure will cause serious engine damage.

  8. CELP indication (250i/Ri, 300i/Ri & 500i/Ri models): If flashing, it indicates that a fault has been detected in the scooter's EFI or electrical system. Requires immediate inspection by a KYMCO dealer.

NOTE: The CELP indicator lights momentarily when the scooter is turned "ON", before the engine is running.

It will also light if the engine is revved past its upper RPM limit. The scooter's ignition will begin to limit engine speed to reduce the risk of potential engine damage. The indicator will go out once the engine speed has returned to the normal range.
