Default 2008 Kia Rio Warning Light?

This is an Odd Question, But I am running out of options, A Warning Light Came on in my '08 Rio when I started it up this morning.

Its looks sort of like this ( ! ) with squiggley lines under the !

the thing is I looked in my owners manuel, and they show I picture of the light, but they dont explain what it means!

I tried to google it and I found basically nothing.

Unfortunately I come from a Long Family of Men who have no clue about cars.

So I was wondering if anyone here had any idea what this light means?

Not sure but I think that for a low coolent light ie: wavy lines mean water and the ! stands for a thermometer.

what you are discribing is a TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) warning light, one or more of your tires is low, check and inflate as needed. If you mount a set of snow tires without TPMS the light will stay on all the time.

100% correct. It's your tires.

Hey how bout that. Learn something new every day. Looked up that safety site and the description that the poster gave wasn't anything I envisioned. Guess we both learned something.

The exact same thing happened to my wife when here mazda had to be dropped off at the dealership. The loaner they gave her had the TPMS light on but she didn't know what it was. I saw it the next day and put some air in the tires, all of them where at 25 psi.
