    I have a 1990 and 1992 and they both read the same light. It does mean one of two things. A bulb is burned out somewhere in your lighting.....check each one turn, parking and other...
    The other and more likely thing is a controller which is attached at each corner of the car which regulates the current going to each lighting section. There are 4, one at each corner and all wiring for the lighting at each corner is monitored and controlled through these units. They corrode internally and any minor variance tells it that there is a fault and then sends a signal to the idiot light on the dash. The controllers are expensive and if your lights are all working, I would'nt worry about it. On one of my cars, the idiot light has now burned out, but all my lights are working and the cost to get the right controller identified and repaired is in the hundreds......

How would someone know what funny shape means

If you have no owners manual google dash board symbols

When you turn on the key you should see & know every

After the engine starts they all should be off or you got problems

Lightining sign on dash mean

If the red light dims severely or goes out when you try to start it you have a flat battery, highly likely if that red symbol has been on while the motor has been running because the alternator hasn't been charging. It could mean you have a broken drive belt but that would also mean no power steering, AC or coolant pump drive so that would have been obvious fairly quickly.

How do you remove the spoked hubcap from the tire on a 1991 cutlass ciera?

Hi, there is a tool, usually in the glove box or by the spare. It's tee shaped with a special fitting to unscrew the bolt inside the caps. If you do not have one, you can probably get one at a salvage yard.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My blinkers dont new lights, new fuses, and new flasher fuse

Not sure if this has been answered but the if you look under the drivers side you will see a flasher unit bolted to the side. It looks like a grey box with a V shaped wiring harness attached to it. Jiggle it. It may fix it. It is most likely your problem.

Will a 1990 or 1991 transfer case work in a 93

ive never tryed it but i wouldnt doubt if it could work, i dont think chevy changed any mounts or frames or parts related to the transfer case, just before you buy make sure you check the mounting brackets, bolts and difference in size or shape of the transfer case. also make sure the driveshaft yolk is the same size and shape as the old one before trying anything out.
hope this helps!

Engine missing & Gear box not shifting

I believe the vehicle to be in" limp mode" which means that you have a sensor or something going or gone bad. raise the hood , turn the headlights on then go take the ground cable off of the battery and then take the positive terminal off. Leave them off for say 30 minutes then turn the head light switch off and put the battery cables back on in the reverse of how i told you take them off and see if that fixes your problem!
