1987 VW Golf (USA, gasoline, manual transmission)
The upshift indicator light on the dashboard came on while in 5th (highest) gear on level freeway at 60mph. Two days later, it seems to not be coming on at all.
Otherwise, the car seems to sound and perform normally.
I remember it is tied to something else so might be a clue to another problem, but don't remember what. According to this discussion, it is linked to "vacuum connections" but I am not very knowledgeable about technical issues. My lovely mechanic is on vacation for a while, so I am wondering if I should be concerned about driving it before he gets back, or not.
