[V8] Check engine light, OXS light, and "brake" light

Funny -- it also is the "I'm running out of fuel" light and my mileage will
suck wind thereafter until you reset me light ;-)

Kinda along the line of "How much fuel do you have left in your tank when
you hit the last red line?" question.  Dunno, guess you'd have to drain the
tank to find out, 'cause you'll have run out of useable fuel before you hit
that last line.  And when you do run out of gas, good luck trying to fill up
with more than 18.8 gallons (at least on the '93)...

> You can add one to that list of "brake" lights - mine comes on when the
engine gets too warm.  No joke.  As soon as some air flows through again, it
goes right off.  I may have partially solved the check engine light, as well
(and figure this one out...) but no nasty notes - I was 2 quarts down on oil
(for various reasons - it goes through quite a bit) - refilled and the light
went off, came back on a few times, but was mostly off on the ~50 mile ride
> So, add oil level to the "check engine" light list.
> Which begs the question, what does the Oil light do?
> Apparently, I'm an idiot as well - I thought there was an OXS light that I
saw, but now that Tony mentioned it, that must be a recollection from
driving the GT (which I haven't done in a long time....)
> I'm scared.
> I do like the part of the manual that tells you that on Canadian models,
if the "brake" light comes on, you may need to replace all of the wiring
