Here we have Text Symbols listed in alphabetical order. The list is so long that they are divided into three pages! Letters A through D are here and links to the remaining alphabet are below.
Text Symbols are the same basic size as the Pictorial versions (about 1/2″ long by 1/3″ tall), but they contain whole or abbreviated words or acronyms.
Well over 100 of them are presented. Additional information can be found by clicking the “more here” links. Again, we looked at cars built by well over 30 of the world’s largest manufacturers. They are listed below, and if you don’t see yours, rest assured that there is enough overlap that you will likely find what you are looking for here.
And don’t miss our Picture Symbols pages. If there is a pictorial representation in the light that you see, you will find it there by category.
