Question 1993 XJ6 Dashboard light question

I recently picked up a 93 XJ6. I have had several lights on the dash come on and off, which I have no idea why, other than electrical issues.

The Circuit light (lightning bold on left side) comes and goes. Occasionally the oil pressure will drop when idleing (apparently an oil filter in the pan needs cleaning) and a brake system indicator, although there is nothing that sounds or feels bad when braking and the fluids are up.

The one that has me confused is on the bottom set of indicators, next to the "sport" indicator. It looks like the number 1 with a slash through it. I have no idea what this light means and my manual has no reference. I also have 1993 Jaguar service manuals, which do not show this indicator light at all.

Does anyone have a clue

Ray

Your number-1 with the slash is a setting that essentially locks out 1st gear. My understanding of it is that it's for use in low traction conditions like snowy or icy or slick. Lower torque helps prevent breaking the rear wheels loose.
