The light is there, but no ones at home.

It will only become active with a remap.
And you have to be hitting about 5500-6000 rpm for it to come on.

Sweet Mary! A Remap is defo on the Xmas list then!

I was thinking it was rather strange to not have a red line indicator for a sports car?! Theres even an indicator for an Abarth fiat 500 as standard!

it will work if you get you ecu flashed with the new bug7 software from ford, then it will flash when the engine is cold untill its warmed up

Mine started doing this when I got the Pumaspeed map, I notice it in 1st and 2nd gears then when the car is warm it goes away. It's quite a neat trick.

How much do Fraud/DS charge for ECU flashes? and how do you know what version is on your ECU already?

I bet it's 45 quid and up

Just find someone in your region with the elm327 and appropriate software if you want the shift light enabling

If you have anything later than a pretty early FL, then didn't they change the instrument cluster and removed the shift light?? Mine is feb 2009 running MR290 and hasn't got any shift indicator whatsoever. Cannot see any visible signs of one either!
