Question about 1989 Toyota Supra
Nobody can figure out what this light is It is a 1989 toyota supra five speed with power windows and doors. It looks like a little white house or radiator but the radiator is full.
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 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.
