Default Warning light question

I have a 1990 supra turbo. In the gauge cluster there is a warning light on that looks almost like a radiator. My levels are fine but the light goes on everytime I make a left hand turn. The light flashes a few time then stays on. Unfortunantly I do not have the origional owners manual and the after market repair manual I purchased does not explain what this warning light means.

Hopefully you can put an end to my confusion.

Thank You

that is what everybody here call a birdcage

that means your coolant reservoir (the one by the front bumper)
is a little low

the light shows up everytime you make a turn bcuz
when you take a turn the coolant moves around exposes the sensor
and makes it think that its out
so jus put sum more coolant in there and you should be good

The force of you taking a corner forces all the liquids or whatever is left to shift to one side causing the gauge to read it as low.
