A little lighted icon appeared next to my odometer. It looks like a tiny yellow car on a 45-degree slope. What does this mean?

Asked by Nov 04, 2014 at 09:20 PM about the 2013 Ford C-Max SE Hybrid

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This little icon just appeared; no reason I can discern. I've never seen it before. I just had the car services (oil change, etc.) this weekend, if that matters.

Check to see if the hill descent button on the side of the gear shift has been pressed. All you do is push the button and the light goes off. My wife accidently pushes the button often when she shifts from park to drive.

Thanks! This answer just helped me

Can anyone tell me what the botton is used for tho?? Like I know what it looks like and where it’s location on the shifter but what does it exactly do?? I don’t know where my manual is at the moment so I care searching. The internet for the answer please help!! I drive a 2012 Ford Escape!! And currently driving in the snow at the moment didn’t know if it would help? Maybe not but just trying to figure out what it’s exact purpose was please help!! N
