    Damn Raventai, I found the same picture on Slee's site 2 seconds before you posted that up. It really does not sound like the light he is talking about, but maybe. That light is for a clogged air filter I believe and Slee uses it as a winch waring light. I have never seen that light (my 94 may not have that feature).

    baldwash, where on the dash is this half bowl idiot light?

    yep we went to the same spot,


    does not sound like it to me either but it is the closet I could think of, does not sound liek any of the other lights either,

    his HDJ would have that air filter clogged system installed unlike our NA cruisers where it is not even lamped.

    Is this the light you're talking about, third from the left between the timing belt warning and the glow plug light?

    It's telling you to drain the sedimenter bowl under the fuel filter, which collects water out of the diesel.

    It should also set off a buzzer which will scare the bejesus out of you the first time it goes off!!
