My UK one is amber. There’s a post further down about hazard warning lights where the link goes to an AH site. They have what looks like the warning light for ..... £45. Maybe the colour is gold, not amber. :shock:

any chance the red and the amber/orange lights might have been swapped ? on my S4 the Fail (Sovy) is red while the Park is orange (which better fits an alarm level commensurate to the danger imminence in my mind)...
