New bus. Canít figure out dash indicator light.

I’m in the process of driving my new bus home from Colorado to NC. I’m getting a warning light showed in the picture after driving it for awhile. It is warm out (high 80’s).Does anyone know what this is? Trying to sort out how concerned I should be on the long drive home. Thanks!

Chrisc, you probably don't have enough posts to post a photo. However; including ANY information about your bus would go a long ways towards receiving some useful input. Maybe year/make/model? Maybe description of the warning light (until a photo can be posted)?

Sorry all. New here and have now double posted this. Attached is the photo of the indicator light.

1999 Bluebird, 8.3 Cummins, 3060 transmission
Engine temperature is good. Oil pressure is good. General coolant is fine although apparently mostly water. Bus has air brakes and retarder.

Someone said maybe hydraulic fluid was running hot? On a long drive home and definitely donít want to do my damage.

Had an inspection done in Colorado. Nothing related to this came up and was given the green light to make the long drive, but they could have missed something...

Any thoughts are very appreciated! Mods please feel free to delete the other post.

Problem was solved. It was the indicator light for the hydraulic oil temperature. Apparently a fuse burned out on the fan that was suppose to kick on at 160 degrees to cool the oil.
