Instrument Cluster Warning light ?

I just received the SERVICE MANUAL for the GTO.

On page 8-278 Instrument Panel, Gages and Console.

Item marked #12 is "1->4" and description says SHIFT 1->4 Manual Transmission Indicator.

Does anyone know what that indicator means?

I have accidently seen it come on once while accelerating fast.

Thanks

Rinku

Please explain? What does a skip shift indicator do when on? How to turn it on/off?

Thanks

PS on 11-94 under Power Outlets. #7 is marked as Front Cigar Lighter?

It seems that they are calling RADIO TURN OFF/ON AND VOLUME KNOB a FRONT CIGAR LIGHTER?

its a gadget that forces you to shift from 1st to 4th in order to save fuel. Its complete crap for any car to have but GM's idea to earn a better fuel economy number. To disable it, order up from GTODEALER a skip shift eliminator. That will turn it off permanently and you can then shift to any gear you want, whenever you want.
