Hi marenea, Maybe this has something to do with your brake system. Have you checked/changed them recently. If so, maybe there is something wrong with the installation. Good luck!


it is the battery light but you will notice that at low rpms it will come on or when your battery is discharging. If im not paying attention it will let me know to shift down.
