I just noticed a warning light on my dash. It is round and has 6 to 8 lines around it(like the sun), it is located just left of the e-brake light. I didnt get an owners manual and would like to know what it is warning.
I'm having an odd issue that I can't figure out. It started a few weeks ago, when I tried to start my car and it wasn't giving way. After a few trys and some gas presses I got it to start again. After that I would occasionaly have the issue. My dad suggested it was the battery. So I went ahead and got a new one. I swapped it in, and started my car to find that the neutral rev was 1.5 thousand rpm. It is normally supposed to be 1 rpm. Anyways it worked fine, but later that day as I'm driving in city traffic, whenever I stop the vehicle and pull into neutral (mine is a manual transmission), the rpm drops down to 0 and my car dies. I can restart it (by doing the same gas trick), but it shouldn't be dieing on me. Now when I drive, I have to hold the gas at stops, and since I'm on stick jumping between clutch, brake and gas is crazy. Another thing to note is that the battery doesn't die, because my clock doesn't reset.

Any ideas would be great. Do you think the guy at the store gave me the wrong battery?

Thanks ahead of time.
has spark and gas won't start, sounds like its not getting spark.
My windows, sunroof, radio and cig lighter all work whether the key is in the ignition or not. It seems to be draining my battery, although I feel as though I may have an alternator issue. Has anyone heard of this? Know of a fix? The 'Red Arrows' lights on my window controls are ALWAYS on. Always. The radio was put in aftermarket and was kind of a shotty job. Could a connection (or lack thereof) here cause this kind of issue?
