disagree  SinnerAtta: There is no indication of the function of this lamp. "Signal" is about an ambiguous as "Schraube". What does the signal do/mean/signify? "Ruffleuchte" sounds more like "call light/lamp", such as a lamp that alerts the drive to an incoming call (telephone)

  -> Calling Mercedes! What does this signal do/mean/signify? Why have you designated it thus?

agree  Cilian O'Tuama: if that's what they call it, that's what they call it

neutral  Johanna Timm, PhD: The translations offered for German parts in the referenced Russian site are not convincing, cp.:LICHTBAND AM FAHRERTISCH= TAPE/BAND; agree with sinneratta on the meaning of Rufleuchte
