Fiat Ducato self levelling suspension warning light on.

We have a Fiat Ducato 2013 short wheelbase self levelling suspension warning light come on (little van picture on dash).
But we do not have any self levelling system fitted. We have the standard springs bolted onto the van chassis.
It has never had it fitted either as we purchased it from someone that had it from new.

Perhaps somebody has wired some other system to that light.

Thank you everyone it seems to be a faulty dashboard light.
I think it was on all the time but cannot be seen during the day as its not very bright. This would tie in with 300 miles in daylight 200 miles at night.
I have found a thread about it below but could not find it before I posted my problem.
The Fiat mechanic at their main Norfolk garage told me to take it in so they can test it and tell me what the fault is (£60 charge) He never mentioned this is a known fault at Fiat, Ducato. Just wanted my £60 then it would have been another £850 to change the light cluster in the dash.

Yes, the Fiat dash is pretty poor for lighting.

So glad you got the info - hopefully before you shelled out £60! - and thanks for coming back with the answer; I hadn't thought of the difference between day and night driving.
