This is from the 86 Interstate owners manual:

1986 Interstate Instrument Panel

If it's 13 and 14 that are lit up - well, they should never be both lit up at the same time. That would indicate a problem with either the shift position switch, or the wiring to that switch.

Hi


Thanks for the diagram very helpful, but to answer your question no its just number 13 that was lit up, but as I wasn't riding it at the time not too sure if it was on constanly or just when he was in 5th gear.
:D
