    Yes, the RID is equivalent - sort of - tto the computer on the 12 GS. Okay a stretch I agree but that's my story and I'm sticking with it :rofl

    You need a key fob from your local dealer, but generally that's the component that puts the machine in self-service mode. Think KITT from <i>KnightRider</i>.

    If you didn't get the fob, you're SOL.

    It's the count down indicator for final drive failure. :evil

    The bars on the left climb to a point where FD failure is the highest, and the bars on the right reset each time you put gas in the tank.

    At some point between the two the number displayed in the little box indicates your number is up (mine was at 5). Shortly after cool down all the bars return to blanks until the FD is repaired. Then the process starts over. :lol3
