I know this may sound horribly simple, but there isn't a fuse in the "FWD" fuse slot, is there?

And welcome to the forum. lol.

Check in the owners manual where it is located. I forger if yours is on the firewall or if it is in the fuse box under the hood.

His - 08 X Prem 5mt
Hers - 08 X 4EAT

Look in the fuse box under the hood, behind the battery. The lid has a diagram on the underside. Look for the slot that says FWD (or AWD, I forget). If there's a fuse in that slot, pull it.

Could there be any other reason that this light would be on?
