dummy light
 
I could not find it in the owners manual,
but what is the red steering wheel icon next to the gas light.

Missing keys?

Wow, that's a good one! I can't find it in the OM, it doesn't show in the instrument cluster breakdown. I'm sure it's a warning about the steering, but could only guess what it means. Hope someone can enlighten us. :confused:

There is a similar light on my Polaris that has to do with the power steerting. Curious if it has to do with the same on the JGC...

The mystery continues. From the '14 user's manual:

Maybe something to do with the heated steering wheel or maybe a malfunction with the paddle shifters? I don't know, just throwing it out there.

Seems to be the same question in other makes... power steering electronics or steering fluid.

And here I was about to guess it was the "Tell the back seat driver that the steering wheel is in front of YOU, so shaddup"

Love hydraulic steering for this reason!

Thanks.
I take it its normal for it to come on when you power on but not start as it cycles through the dummy lights.
