General (!) Warning Light at middle of cluster

I see plenty of information on the nightime gage illumination lamps on the forums but my questions are what about the central general red warning lamp as well as the lamp check function.  I am getting intermittent (!) general warning.  I believe that the ignition position on the keyswitch is used to check individual warning lamps on the display to make sure they are not burned out.  When I do this not all the warning lamps that I know are there illuminate.  Also I am getting a general Warning which is supposed to be accompanied by a warning lamp on one of the two gages.  This all leads me to believe I have a lamp out on one of the two gages, possibly masking a problem.  Are there any replacements for these types of lamps?

On the far left combo gage the Parking Lights warning (if it is there as shown in the manual) does not illuminate.

On the far right combo gage the air bag and washer fluid warnings do not illuminate.

odd to see that many go at the same time so it might be worthwhile to check the ground.

usually those small push in and twist lock bulbs are 1.2 watts. Ian is just showing leds but 99963130290 is the number for the normal ones with the base.

do leave the battery unplugged for an hour if you pull the airbag. do not put the key in the ignition while the bag is unplugged.. either will trigger the bag light.

personally, I am not a fan of led lighting. something about the blue spectrum is like a cat scratching a chalkboard.

Thanks; I'll give Ian/Steve a call.  The car is after all 25 years old so even with low mileage it is possible that there are some grounding gremlins.  I can also remove the display and check the bulbs then go from there.  BTW this happened after I had new tires and an alignment at the dealer.  May be coincidence but I'll keep checking things.
