  25. Does the CWP ICE PROT light illuminate with all the icing systems?
  26. What is indicated by an illuminated DE-ICE OV TEMP light? 11-10
    An over temperature has been noted in the boot system (>150 degrees C)
  27. What is indicated by an illuminated TIMER light? 11-11
    The de-ice timer valves are malfunctioning, the cycle is interrupted, over or under pressure, or a computer malfunction
  28. Can the pilot manually de-ice just the wings? 11-11
  29. Can the pilot manualy de-ice just the stabilizer? 11-11
  30. How can the pilot de-ice just the outboard wing section? 11-11
    By pressing and holding the outboard push button for 6 seconds
  31. Why are HP valves kept in AUTO during flight in icing conditions? 11-11
    To insure proper boot inflation at low power settings
  32. What is indicated by an illuminated blue ENG ANTI-ICE light on the status panel? 11-13
