    I drove about 2 miles down to the store this am and left the car on and went inside. It was a general store so spent about 15min inside and came out I noticed an amber light on the dash about the same area that a low tire pressure light would appear. Infact i thought it was the low tire at first but As soon as I put the car in reverse it went away. I immediately drove to the gas station to check air pressure, thinking that that light is red from what i remember and I had just checked all 4 tires and filled on Sun. LTS the tires appear fine so I am not sure what the indicator light could have been anyone? When I say amber it wasnt bright yellow or red or green it was more orangy yellow I wished I would have paid more attention but I immediatley though the low tire and wanted to get down to the gas station to make sure I didnt have a full flat and get stuck.

    There are quite a few possibilities. The owner's manual explains all the lights, but unfortunately doesn't map them out, so the location doesn't help. You'll need to remember the shape and just look at the section of the manual that tells about the indicator lights.

    actually none of those its almost like a circle but a bit more oval and a forward slash. I now see it when I first start and all the various symbols light up for a split second

    One thing I still half the time forget I can do is shoot video on my phone. Even if the light's only on briefly, if it was more than 1/30 second there'll be a frame to grab.

    That's odd. I thought I pulled that diagram from a 2010 owners manual.
