That sounds like the dummy light for shifting. I'm assuming you have a 5 speed?

Yeah i got one too. It tells me to shift way too early. its kind of annoying, but I'll live. maybe someday im bored i'll mess with it so it shuts off.

you can always go the homer simpson route for the fix... a small piece of electrical tape on it, and presto! its not there any more!

My 99 has it too and tells me to shift around 1500 RPM, but I just ignore it. I'll check the shop manual and see what it says, if anything.


I looked through the manual and I can only find a part about the bulbs. We already touched on that topic.

that shift light is annoying and it does seem to go off at rather low rpms. im making hte transition from an s2k, which doesnt even make real power until 6200rpm so its very awkward for me to have to shift at 2krpm, lol.

its a shift light indeed. once in a while i get it around 1500 as well.. I rather have it go on right before the redline instead.. any one know how to change the rpm it turns on?
