This is knows as the "bird cage" by most MK3 owners. it's the coolant warning light. It means that either you don't have enough coolant in the system, or that your sensor has gone bad. I recently buoght my 2d MK3 Supra. Both have been 5 spd Turbo. This warning light is a simple fix. If you have any other questions about teh car please visit Supraforums.com They are very knowledgeable about any year Supra there. It's jut a community of Supra owners who will help each other out and give advice on repairing/upgrading. It will really help you learn a lot about your Supra.

If it's a little white house, then you've found the "home" button on Yahoo. But let's assume it's the radiator warning indicator. When you say the radiator is full....do you mean the reservoir? Or the radiator itself? Coolant can build up sludge, that will block the tube going to the radiator....so it looks full, when it isn't. Is the light on all the time? Does your car overheat? With the hood up and the engine running, turn on your air conditioning (if you have air) or your defroster setting (if you don't). This should make your electric fan turn on by the radiator. If it doesn't, you need to get the fan fixed. It may just be a coolant temperature sensor that's gone bad, and that will also bring on the indicator light. But a quick trip to your nearest Toyota dealer....and it doesn't have to be the service center...even a sales guy, should be able to tell you what that "little white house" is. And, please, get it checked before you travel too far from home.

1987 Supra What is the in-dash warning light left of the temp guage? symbol: carriage light, filter?


Radiator, usually comes on when the exterior plastic tank gets low . Sometimes these leak as a result from low antifreeze and the plastic tank will crac k at the base, where the wire comes out which activates the little symbol light to the left of the temp gauge you are referring to.

My heater is not working on my Supra. Its a 1989 model. I have changed the thermostat but that has not solved the problem


It is most likely the vsv under the hood by the passenger side firewall. Mine would only blow cold air. As soon as I bypassed the electronic vsv vacuum hoses the vacuum switch opened hot water from the radiator into the heater core and presto I now have heat. I found a vsv at a junk yard today and will replace next weekend but for now at least I have heat. Basically the vsv is what tell the vacuum switch how much to open and close to fluctuate the hot water running through the heater core. By bypassing it I cannot adjust the temp. inside the cabin except through hitting a lower blower button. I hope this helps.
