Yup, you've got it. I now realize it is the shift indicator. Apparently this is a feature on other vehicles in addition to Wrangler. Thanks to Redbeard, I did some further research and found this on that confirms his explanation:

In article (Stephen H. Westin) replies to c...@Cleveland.Freenet.Edu (John M.

My sentiments exactly. I own a '92 Wrangler and have ignored this indicator light from day one with no apparent reprecussions. Jeep certainly did us a favour by minimizing the annoyance of this light. Specifically, they made it a small outline of an arrow, less than 1" in size, illuminated with white light. This is a vast improvement from the annoying red bar that my '83 Mustang had (suffice it to say that that was disconnected ASAP). Jeep also desiged the indicator such that it will turn off as soon as your speed plateaus, even if you did not upshift. Kudos to Jeep.

BTW, I highly recommend the Wrangler.


AnswerIs that the shift indicator? Many manual transmission vehicles have an indicator that tells you when to shift. The up arrow may be indicating that it's time to shift up one gear.
