:lol: I was thinking the same thing the first time I took a corner quickly. To solve problem, push "TRAC OFF" button :lol:

i believe you are

i believe you are refering to the taillight indicator. Check you 3rd brake lights, or it could even be all the brake lights. But i know it's refers to the rear lights, either parking or braking. Mine is doing the same, but havent had the time to check it out, although i do know all of my parking lights are working, so the only possibilty is the brake.

im

im pretty sure it's the rear light default. I think he is refering to the one that is in the Tachometer. Has a car with straight lines in the back.

I have an E-shift, and use that feature all the time.

thanks for the prompt replies

I road w/ my friend too work today, but I'm almost positive that there straight lines coming from the back of the vehicle it's really odd. I would look in my manual but i can't find it anywhere. I'll try the trac button when i get home today though and then tell ya'll if that was it.

It's your brake lights / Tail lights. Make sure the bulb is not out.

It's not a "sensor," a sensor is something that senses. :roll:

The lights on your display board are INDICATORS.

I checked the manual.

If the warning light comes on when you have your light switch on, it's a tail light bulb.

If the warning comes on when you push the brake pedal, it's a brake light bulb.
