The farthest light to the right...
 
Furthest?
Most farest?

Looks like a side-rear view of car, with an arrow pointing up from the top storage area.

Never lights up on startup like all the rest. What does this light signify?

According to the Bentley manual, that would be the convertible top warning light.

No, it has an arrow pointing up from the top's storage area. I'll look when I'm at my shop later.

Different location on the 03 , but it looks like it's the retractable spoiler warning light

No, I don't think so...that one is on the left.

This one, Tim? It's for the ejection seat ;)

Apparently, it is not used in either US or Canadian models...maybe European?

I had you going in a totally different angle. Something like...

Depending on which direction you are driving, it's the sun.

On a serious note, I have never seen it either

Mark_T 11-18-2013 01:09 PM

That's the light that tells you your wind delflectors have just detached from the roll bar and are now lying in a ditch damaged beyond all possible repair.

drew44 11-18-2013 02:01 PM

It is your "ROLL-OVER PROTECTION WARNING LIGHT"
Found at least on the 911 Carrera 4 (996) model....(European?)

I've got a ROW spec car and have never seen it on my dash lights or in the handbook.
Of course, you could get that warning light after your IMS bearing goes pop......

as in the roll bar assembly has come unbolted? :eek:

jotoole 11-18-2013 02:11 PM

Would have rolled more than the one
 
With that added distraction.

drew44 11-18-2013 02:13 PM

Or maybe to give you warning that you might be rolling over soon!!
But I do like the idea of the ejection seat light Particle..

evo-r 11-18-2013 04:28 PM

I would guess it's for the roll over protection on the 911 cabriolet.

That's it!! Mine does not light up.

Umm, no. Not it. All the way right. I'll count my lights later.

particlewave 11-18-2013 06:13 PM

The one all the way to the right in my picture is for the convertible top, though yours may be ordered differently. The picture should represent gauge clusters from all 986's from 1997-2001, IIRC. What year is yours?

Edit: derp...it's right there in your sig ;)

Ok. Farthest right is cruise symbol. Then it is in fact the IMS ejection / you're upside down stupid, light. Small line in door and arrow pointing up.

Timco 11-19-2013 06:40 AM

My tree looks different than the one pictured. Just a lower row, CEL is in the long lower row. No lights up by the gauges in the corners.

Been following this thread and so I've just been out to have a look at my UK speck 2.7 2003 face lift 986 Boxster, and as you can see our dash board lights are slightly different to that one shown above.

I hope this helps in some way as someone mentioned in an earlier post about European speck being different to your USA speck.
Guvs.
