      I think it would be jumping the shark if we were talking about modifying the check engine light icon. 'Yo check out what i did to my check engine light!'

      Fun story: My wife was driving home one day and asked me why the helicopter light came on. I could not for the life of me figure out what she was talking about.

      She thought the CEL looked like a cartoon helicopter.

      I laughed and laughed.

      Hahahahaha!

      My wife did something similar. The front left parking light bulb is out on my GTI. The MFD indicates that on start-up, and then the failed bulb warning light stays on. My wife and I had switched cars a couple of weeks agostopped the car, called me, and asked me what she should do, if it was safe to drive. I asked her why? She said there was a warning light that looks like an exploding bomb and thought maybe it meant the engine was going to blow up.

      I laughed and laughed.

      The red dashboard warning lights mean stop immediately while the orange ones mean you can keep driving but should get it checked out as soon as possible. Makes sense.

      It looks like everything I've tried to draw on an etch a sketch.
