Who Knew there were so many variants to an '02 Cluster!

With this setup I know when the glow plugs are being energized by the PCM and can also over-ride the GPR when it's above 40F. So much less wear and tear on the glow plug system and batteries during the warmer months.
Not a bad idea, I have mine on a push button, I only have to use my glow plugs if it's in the 50s or below.

In any case, despite whatever shape the icon might be, it still has NOTHING to do with GP function
I have the same light on my 2016 and according to the Diesel supplement for the owners manual, it is Glow Plug Pre-Heat. Instructions say to wait until the light goes off before starting. This is included with trucks that have the cold weather starting strategy.

For the OP, you only need to worry about this for cold weather starting.

Personally I just do what the wts light says even though I live in Savannah and in the dead of winter our lows are around 40. I figure the designers and engineers have a reason the wts is on. I notice it is on sometimes longer than others so the pcm is making some decisions that I am not aware of.

Nope, that's what a factory 02 cluster looks like.

What part of the world are you guys from? In the US, the cluster's switched to this style in mid model-year '01. All US 02s and 03s have the "new" style cluster with the digital odometer, trans temp gauge, and squiggly WTS light.

heh, I helped someone move a brand new big Mercedes Sprinter camper... stuck wierd shaped key in ignition, click to Run, then twist to Start. huh, nothing happens. let go of key so it goes back to Run, and the engine goes ruh-ruh-ROOMMMMMMMMM and diesels away. too much tech for me. actually, that big beast was pretty easy to maneuver with good mirror sight lines.
