Default LS400 Dash warning light legend...

Anyone have a picture to decipher all the warning lights on the instrument cluster for a 1st GEN LS. Im trying to figure out what the light is on the lower left hand corner of the instrument cluster is...Orange light and icon and best way I can describe it is it sort of looks like the lincoln memorial statue building..haha...but seriously cant figure out what it is since I dont have the owners manual...any help is appreciated.
Thanks

It's a radiator light. Normally if it goes off after a bit of driving you just need to top off your coolant, and otherwise, I've heard of the sensors going bad too.

Hold on lemme look it up... I don't know that one off the top of my head, but I have the factory manuals sitting right here next to me.

Hmmm... I couldn't find anything in the factory repair manuals, or in my car when I looked at all the lights on startup. Maybe it's a UCF11-only symbol?

The only "person" one for my 91 is the seatbelt symbol, and the airbag system light is next to it and reads "AIR BAG".

Faulty sensor. It happens. These cars are packed full of sweet electronic gadgets and sensors... and of course the more you have, the more that can go wrong.

The sensor is in the seat, but the wiring could have gotten screwed up as well... it's hard to say for sure. I know mines is messed up, doesn't work at all, but it's an out-of-sight out-of-mind thing for me, since I always buckle up.

I don't wanna mislead you, but make sure you don't have a different airbag light in the dash than the earlier 1LS's before you go fixing what isn't broken.
