You will get a 'yellow' light bulb like warning light on the lower right of the dash. My wife said it was 'the sun'.

But it's lower right of the dash board and it did not go away until the light bulbs were screwed in a certain way That is what caused my mechanic to look closely at the light buckets and discover they was an ever so slight ripple in the black plastic part, not the lens.

That when he started looking for recalls and found the one issued back some time in mid 2000.

$400 later, it's all fixed and worth every penny.
