Flickering Stop Light on Dash

Hi Everyone

I have a flickering "Stop Light" on the dash of my Monaco Knight.

Any advice or suggestions appreciated.

Thanks,

Does it say 'stop engine' or something else? Check oil level and watch oil pressure. Others will be along that might know your dashboard lights.

Interesting, i second watching for it along with your gauges.

My parking brake light flickers periodically, but so far no stop light.

Keep us posted on which light it is, hopefully all instrumentation is in the green.

All the gauges seem to be ok.
The flickering is very sporadic and faint most of the time.

If you are taking about the stop engine light flickering it's usually a sign the fuel filters need to be changed. Was your rig sitting for months?

If your rig sits more than 3 months the fuel tends to grow algae. This clogs your fuel filters. If you are going to be driving soon. There is a treatment you can put into the tank for the algae. As it dies it will continue to clog your fuel filters. So you will have to change them a couple of times. Once you run a couple of tanks of fuel. Then change the filters one last time. Next year if the rig is going to sit more than 3 months, top it off and treat it and you won't have this problem again.

If your stop engine light stays on more than 10 seconds. Pull over. It's another problem.
Good luck and safe travels.
