Help! whats this light mean?

I was on a little road trip today and a light came on by my trans temp gauge. It came on after I got on it a little bit. It looked kind of like >I:I=> I think thats the only way I can type it close. I assume its a tranny code. I drove about 150 miles on it. What is it?

what year is your truck?? if its 02 or newer I'm pretty sure thats your air filter light. what happens is your filter minder gets sucked together and sets that light off. If you have a factory filter it needs to be replaced.
