tire pressure symbol is orange. my exclamation mark is red, and couldnt find it in my or your book. its the same light which comes on when you use your parking brake. but my parking brake is released. could it have something to do with the new cat back exhaust???

i would think since it started when you did your exhaust, it is most likely related. i would just your service department and ask them what it means. make sure post up on what you find out.

Could you have possibly caused the park brake cable to bind when you did the install? I'd check the cable and make sure it's free and not hung up on anything.

i think it was the park brake cabel. i went under my truck and checked everything and it didnt come on again.

my new cat-back is sounds awesome its supposed to be fuel efficient but i just noticed that my foot is getting heavier and heavier :-)

pretty sure that symbol is for park brakes on every make and model, so if the light is on you park brakes are engadged even a little bit, glad you find the problem
