unknown switch on dash

Postby CptClinac » Tue Mar 27, 2018 7:46 pm

Hi All.
I run a bighorn 3.1TD 1996. There is a switch on the dash which has me baffled. Can anyone help.
The icon is of an engine. It has a lamp but does not light up or seem to do anything.

Any suggestions??
Thanks
Dave

It might in winter time. Its the switch for quick warm start. Only works when the coolant is below 5C
Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them
