Default light on dash?

im not sure if its only sticks that have this light. its on the left side . and its a arrow and i always thought it was a shift light of some sort ( mines not an arrow any more i made it say hell ya) the light normaly cam on at high revs hence the reason i changed it to hell ya lol. but that aside when im sitin at idle or drivin cruising speeds it flickers on really dimmly. first questions what is this light really for? and what does it mean when its flickering on n off like that?

It may be controlled by a vacuum switch, which could cause it to flicker at idle if you have a leak or ??
