87' Comanche Warning light question

My 86' Comanche Laredo 2.5L AMC, 5 speed manual has a light I don't recognize. ONLY when I'm accelerating a light on the left side of my cluster turns on, and turns off when I let off the pedal. It looks like the outline of an up arrow, or a house... any hints? And what does it mean (harmful?). Thanks!

The light is advising you to up-shift.

Thanks. Is there anything that goes wrong with them? Cause it comes on if i'm only doing 2k and even if I'm in 5th gear. I had originally thought that it was telling me to upshift and it was was a super cool feature, but then its on every time I accelerate even at low RPMs

I wish I could say. I've had a couple vehicles with that feature. I usually rev a little higher to shift than the light will tell you. Never had any problems with it, but the oldest vehicle I had it in was a '95 Honda Civic.

Take the bulb out. It was only there so they could get the vehicle to pass the EPA tests if it was driven like an old woman.

I have one of the "up-shift " lights. Cool at first but than I know when to shift. Just took put some electrical tape over the light. No more light.
