    the battery and oil lights have the same function like in every other car. if any of the two lights up when the car has started then it means there is a problem with your battery charging system or oil pressure etc. the booster light (engine light) lights up for a few seconds when the ignition is switched on, and then goes out, you need to wait for the light to go out before starting the car. it is preparing the engine to be started. if the engine light turns on at any time while the engine has started then that means there is a problem in the electrical system (as in your case after 3500 rpm) the door lights and the trunk light warn you about any open door or trunk. the fuel light tells you that you have less than 5 litres of fuel left in your tank (but correctly functions only if your fuel filter is clean). As far as the check engine lighting up is concerned, you HAVE to take it to honda and ask them to do a computer check. It costs about rs 1000. and they check all the electrical systems. It is advisable to have it checked asap so that the problem does,'t increase. below is a picture of the speedometer of my 1999 vti civic. I think all the lights are the same as in the 1997 one. you need to get your cng adjusted in order to remove that low rpm problem.

    there are 10 lights and the rest 6 are fillers (means that they are just black depressions, there is no light in them). since the parts of these cars are Japanese, they had positions in them for cruise controls, abs, srs etc etc and over here in Pakistan they didnt offer such things so they had to fill the openings. also it looks nice that there are so many equipment. the rest 4 lights which I didnt explain are indicators, high beam and the hand brake. and removing the advancer wont help. I also had the problem and it was dealt with by altering the adjustment.
