    What is this warning light ?

    I keep seeing a red warning light flash on the left side of the dash just above the first gauge, the temp gauge I think. When it flashes my speedometer needle wobbles. That might just be the momentary nature of the warning light flashing.
    It doesn't stay on long enough to see what it is. Anyone have a layout of the dashboard warning lights or might know what it is.
    Thanks for any reply...

    It should light up for a bulb check when you turn the key on - what does the manual say? Just in case you don't have one: http://shbox.com/pdf/manuals.html

    Oh, duh. Yes, when I put the key in and turn it a little they all light up. The particular one that flashes says "Check Gages" (That is how it is spelled.)
    I guess I'll just let it go until something blows out or quits working. I don't see anything wrong with the gauges.
    Very odd....

    I put the key in and turned it just a little and all the lights showed up. It was the "Check Gages" (That is how it was spelled.) I don't see anything wrong with the gauges so I guess I'll just let it go and not worry about it for now. Money is pretty tight.
    Thanks everyone!

    if its coming on when your speedo seems to flutter, and you engine itself isnt stalling at all,....i would say that the speedo sensor maybe going bad causing it not to register and throw off a code....or you could be grounding out somewhere do to a wiring problem ( if it were this though you would more than likely have issues with more than you speedo)
