Basically, i am gettin all sorts of lights comin up on the dashboard, and hte problem is i cant find my manual.. so im not hundred 100% sure what is what.. ghead
Was wonderinf if there is a link, where it shows each icon from the dashboard and what it actually is..??
Cos so far i know iv got

I could be wrong, but it looks like you need a servicing. How many miles do you have on her? I would recommend that if you can't afford to bring the car to a mechanic, or if you prefer to do work on the car yourself, get a Peake Research Code reader, it'll read your OBC to find any error codes and tell you what they mean.
The "engine management light" I'm assuming that's comprable to the little symbol of an engine or "check engine" light or even "check engine soon" light. That could mean anything from an open gas tank to a bad cylinder firing. Using that tool could help you better identify what it is. There are also reset tools for the airbags, however, that really should be checked. Have you recently been in an accident or have just purchased her? Do you know if it's history if you got it used?
The last thing, I'm assuming, are your brake pads, they're low and have tripped the brake pad sensor. If that's the case, they're simple to change, just need a small jack and pretty much the tools that come with the car (basically speaking of course).
I'm sorry I cannot be of more help. I know how annoying those damn lights can be.
ps... what's a V reg?
