    need a little more info on the light however no dash lights should stay on all the time. Could it be the fasten seatbelt light?

    not a dashlight.... its under the dash on its own little mount. small red , round bulb. I think i was told that it meant the glow plugs were on. but not sure. If anyone has a 98chevy diesel... let me know about his

    could it be the light that comes on when the door is open? Maybe the door switch is bad on 1 side and the previous owner put in a red bulb instead of a clear so they could drive at night. I would check your owner manual I have never heard of a light under the dash for the glow plugs normally the light is on the dash.
