Default Red shift light stayed on

So my 3 race in last weekends Lime Rock race about half way through the red shift light comes on and doesn't go off. Freaked me out for a second I was checking oil pressure and temps all ok. When I came in after the race and turned the car off then on it went out .

Just want to make sure its not a warning light for anything else ? I attributed it to being wet for 3 days and some fluke thing

Any ideas?

Thanks

Where is the red light? Mine only has one orange light on the left side of the column (2003 cup).

^^ do they both flash simultaneously? What year is yours Steve? Mine is a 2003 and the only red light on my car is in the center of the dash (where the switches are) and it is a warning light for high gearbox and engine temp.

According to the 2005 Manual, the orange light on the left is a "shift light" and the red light on the right is a "water level" light.

Looks like I'm missing the end cap with the orange lens. I feel so inadequate. If anyone knows a source for the light, let me know.

Cheers,

Bob

Page 9 of the 2005 manual. And yes, a clean car is a faster car! I think that's why you like to race in the rain.

Yes it was just below the MIN line I filled it up just above it ( only about 6 ounces or so)- I hope that's solved
