Pretty much. The temperature is low enough that if your engine is not properly prepared for the cold you could experience engine issues. i.e. Frozen radiator, tube failures and other issues like low viscosity oil which would create lubrication issues and premature pump failure. Best to ensure that your car is wheater ready for the cold. DRRXR :)

If it is a gear looking symbol (in the owners manual it is called a snowflake), it comes on when the outside temp is between 31-36 degrees F.

LIGHT POP ON THAT LOOK LIKE A SNOW FLAKE AND NEXT TO IT LIGHT THAT LOOK LIKE A WOTER SQUIRT. IS IT TIME FOR A TUNE UP AND OIL CHANGE. IS THAT WHAT THOSE LIGHT MEAN


The snowflake is an indicator that it is possible for ice to be present on the road. The other one indicates that you need to add windshield wiper fluid to the vehicle...once it is above 32 degrees the red snowflake will go off and a yellow one will come on, once it is above 40 degrees outside the yellow light will shut off as well

Why is the ''snowflake light'' showing up red in my car?


I have a '99 Mercury Cougar & I've been read somewhere that the snowflakes have to do with the outside temp. & traction. I think it's warning you that it may be slippery or icy. I've noticed that when it's +3 to about -2 or -3, the yellow snowflake shows up. Any anything colder than -3 shows the red snowflake. The other lights: the wrench comes up in yellow. That one has always turned on after a certain amount of km's & it's advising you that your car needs a check-up (that's when I know I should look into getting an oil change). You can turn this light off by holding down the two buttons above & below the 'clock' button. Hold them down together for at least 5 seconds & that wrench light should go off. Otherwise, there is a light for checking your breaks (upside down exclamation mark), low windshield fluid. I can't think of any other ones but I hope this helps.

Yellow warning light


Dunno where you reside but our indoor/outdoor digital thermometer shows a snowflake once the temp drops down to 0C/32F. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that a Jag would have a warning light for freezing temps.
