Question

overheat light?

i know there are brake warning lights, lamp failure, low coolant, low engine oil, and low beam. But i've never seen an overheat light there...

hmmm... what do u have automatic or manual? and when does the light come on?

yeha

there is a large rectangle on the lefthand side of the display pannel and the overheat is a light at the bottom of that rectangle. they other lights are in a group of 9 i think. when i get home will paste a photo.

The light comes on when i get to "on" with the ignition. pressing the reset button on the pannel doesnt do anything.
