RE: warning lights
The warning I am getting is the RED triangle with the exclamation mark
in the middle. It is almost always on. It seems the only time it comes
off is after driving several (20-30 miles) at highway speed without
slowing down OR when I am having a bit of fun and really get the revs
up, over and over and over, such as when playing on a windy road. Any
