1978, 924 engine light indicators, what is the middle one on the right?

Hey there. Proud new owner of a 1978 924 and I need some help.

What is the indicator light on the right side of the dash right under the oil light? It looks like a wheel, or possibly a fan?

It came on for me and I am curious to what it is and if I need to fix something asap?


I attached a picture.

It's definitely not parking brake. I believe alternator is the battery light. At least that is what the original owner manual shows as the image that goes with any information regading the alternator. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

This looks like a ROW car. I had a '78 and it didn't have that symbol.

Where is this located?

Not sure what it is, sorry.

Thanks my friend. This is exactly what I was looking for. For some reason the manual didn't include this picture.

Apparently, I was wrong. Seems such an odd icon for a parking brake. Never would have thought!
