This means your coolant level is low. check the reservoir on the passenger side of the engine compartment, fill to full line. if it is down significantly, you should have the system pressure checked for leaks. good luck!

My 2011 Dodge Journey shows "Back" with an arrow pointing to the left in the middle control panel. What does this mean?

The center panel allows you to access tons of information. The icon your describing means that if you push the "back" button on your steering wheel, you will go to the main menu. All the menus are controlled by the arrow buttons on the wheel.

Tall instruments jump all over,for example ill be stopped at a red light speed will show 70 miles an hour, gas will show empty, temp will be pegged out,one minute later every thing is!!!!

Unsure what you mean by Tall instruments. Meaning digital gauges or the
standard needle gauges?
Being that this problem happens to more than one gauge at the same time
and returns to normal at the same time, tells me that it might be a loose
connection grounding the instrument panel, in which could be like a needle
in a haystack to find.
One other possible way, is to check ALL fuses related to the instrument
panel for looseness, not blown, since your gauges work sometimes and
sometimes not. Hope this helps.

Gas gauge jumps from empty to what ever the tank is filled at .some time it shows half full etc then just drops to empty, then after a few minutes driving it goes back to a level.

I own two 1993 960s and on one the gas gauge sits on 0 until I thump (hard) the plastic lens in front of the gauage in the instrument panel. It is most certainly due to a cold solder or cracked solder joint. Can be a corroided contact.

Thump the gas gauge arrow like I do when it is registering 0. If it does not move then it is the sender in the tank that has a flat spot.

The red gauges are on. what does that mean

if a light with word gauges lights up it means one of his gauges are out of range warning of a possiable problem such as low voltage,overheating,low oil pressure etc, it's the manufacturers way of getting your attention before you let car self destruct,could be as simple as low fuel.

1997 Saturn SL--Red arrow pointing up coming on...

Hello, I noticed you have a red arrow on you dash showing up. Your car is a manual shift transmission and the arrow is indicating a preset shift interval to help you save gas and performance quality. When the light comes on its telling you simply select another gear. Please rate my answer. Thank You

Please can you help why only after about a mile the engine is red hot but temp gauge is only showing middle. is this normal. YEAR 2001 WITH SERVICE HISTORY ONLY HAD SIX MONTH.

When you say "red hot" do you mean actually glowing? If so, you'd have serious trouble. If you mean only hot to the touch, that's normal - these engines run pretty warm. And yes, the gauge in the center is normal - the OEM temp gauge is a dummy gauge, only meant to show you that it's either cold, overheated, or mainly OK. Use your oil temp gauge as your main indicator - at least it's graded numerically and you can actually see the oil temp.
