    hi
    I have a d5h xl2 / ser. # 8rj4559
    on the dash there are 2 rows of warning lights , the bottom left light shows a thermometer with what looks like hydraulic cylinder in it , ( it was not on last fall when I parked it covered it with a tarp )
    what is the light for and where is the sending unit for it ?

    thanks

    would a squirrel eating the wire cause the light to come?
