mystery dash light - looks like a headlight with a squiggly line in front ot it


Asked by Aug 31, 2007 at 10:35 PM about the 1998 Volvo V70

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

There is a warning light on my dashboard.  It looks like a headlight with a squiggly line in front of it, but all my exterior and interior lights are working (except for the light in the shifter console)

Does anyone know what this means?

Do your headlight seem dimmer than they used to be? If so i would say that light that you are talking about is sayin that your altenator may not be chargin the battery or your battery is going bad. I dont think that would just come on for the shifter light, but sometimes you never know.


If you have the option for front / rear or both fog lights, this light means the are on.
