Sport Differential Warning Indicator

Sport Differential WarningThis is a Sport Differential Warning Indicator symbol. On vehicles equipped with the sport differential, the warning light, when illuminated, indicates that the differential is either overheated or has malfunctioned. There is no distinction available to the driver.

If the vehicle has been driven hard for a time however, taking it slow for a time may resolve the warning light. If not, it will need servicing by a qualified service shop.


The image is a variation on similar warning images found in all-wheel drive vehicles, and is a stick figure with what are wheels turned to one side at one end. There is a single circle between two of the wheels rather than one each between the two sets of wheels, indicating a two wheel drive vehicle. Further, the drive wheels are at the rear.
