Sounds like its the low coolant light. Check your coolant level. You may have to let the engine fully cool off(4 hours +) and check it in the radiator depending on the year of your car.

Turn signals not working

I presume you also hear NO click click click when you turn the flasher on.
Turn signals work off a Solonoid, fuses, and a charged battery.
Since the fuses are OK, the car starts, the most likely cause is the solonoid. It's a little square colored box about 2 to 2 1/2" inches long,
1" wide, and 1" deep. They are color coded to recognize the device.
The little box plugs in under the dash, were it plugs in changes by make and model and year. The easiest way is to go to an Auto Parts supply house and give Make, model, and year. Then you can see the color, go under the dash with a Flashlight are carefully look for the same color device. Unplug by pulling it straight out, replace with the new. Your flasher should work.

Instrument cluster

Under the dash (I'm asuming you have s digital dash), if you look under there close to where the console ends, you will see a kind of goldish colored box about 4 inch or so square (I think it's square,
I haven't worked on one in a long time with that problem) There should be another box to the left of that, I am only giving you a reference point so you know you are in the correct area. Anyway, the smaller box is the power supply to the digitsl dash. If that goes bad, the dash won't light up. The symptoms typically are that part of the dash may work for a little while and then the whole thing goes out. All you can do is replace it. They are hard to find in a salvage yard and then you are takeing a chance.I hope I have answered your question. I'm sure I have solvdd some problems out there for a few people.

Warning Light

yes, on the expansion bottle or some rads on them its on the side of the rad there is a black square with a 3 or 4 oin plug on it.
remove this by i think half or quarter of a turn, and pull out, note some antifreeze will leak about half a litre, check for oil on it as this might of had a head gasket and a little oil gets into the water and sticks to the prongs, wipe it off, some time it like a limescale sort of build, clean it, if no joy u need a new 1

Wife just called and said "a square orange light just came on on the upper left side of the dash." I can't visualize the dash warning lights and trying to figure out which one it is. Battery,...

Without knowing the year of your truck, I'm assuming that it is a 2000 or newer and has a message center on the left side of the of the instrument panel.

If it was an orange square, with no writing in it, then it was probably the Battery warning light, which illuminates when there is a problem with the charging system. The engine coolant light would more than likely be a message that says TEMP, and the check engine light would be shaped like an engine (both would be in the message center).
