    It looks like a container with one nozzle at the top right, about one third full of what seems to show liquid.

Since you don't have a manual, here are the three you need to worry about (other than the VERY obvious, the CEL, the brake, and the battery lights)

The little oil can on the left side of the cluster is oil pressure, and if the oil pressure light is coming on, you either have a bad sending unit, or you are pretty much shafted... the oil pressure light doesn't come on unless the pressure is REALLY Low. The gauge is the warning, the light comes on when it is too late (something like 2-3 psi).

On the right side of the cluster are two more, the one on the bottom, with the little vertical lines is the sensor in your radiator overflow bottle.

The one you are wondering about from your original problem is right above the radiator indicator, it is for windshield washer fluid level. when it comes on, check the fluid, but don't sweat it if the fluid is full, the sensor gos bad, mine went bad a while ago, and my light has been on in my 94N/A for the last 50k miles or so. This is one light it doesn't hurt too much to ignore.

Cheers,
Scott

My service engine light came on my 2011 ford fiesta. Anyone knows what it means. Don't have money right now for a mechanic


Its possible that this "service light" just reminder to you that "!is time to check/change" fluids and filters, check you mileage and maintenance schedule.

Good luck.

What does the orange explanation point symbol in the 2011 Toyota Camry mean?


The symbol will be in your owners manual in the glove box. Could be you have maintenance due, or a sensor is going off in the engine. You would need to take it to a shop so a mechanic can hook up your vehicle to a diagnostic device.

I don't know what the warning symbol means on my prius dashboard. I assume it means I need a new battery. Does anyone know?


Your owners manual should have the definition of the symbols.
The battery light usually means the alternator is not charging the engine battery, and the red symbol with the outline of a car next to it is a problem with the hybrid portion of the car.
I would strongly recommend you get it checked out by the dealer or someone experienced with hybrid cars.

What do warning symbols look like


I'm going to go ahead and answer one of these duplicate questions.
You said in another question you did not have the manual. I don't know of any source online for a photo of the symbols or a free manual. Most of the symbols are standard issue, meaning the abs light is for the abs brakes, etc.
You may still be able to order an owners manual from the dealer, or look on Ebay. You may also be able to find out some of the special symbols from owner club websites like durango club or challanger forum online.

Chevy Cavalier 91 - Dashboard symbol "check" lite


Some fault code is stored in the PCM (computer); to know what is the problem, I suggest scanned the PCM with some scanner reader codes. Autozone or AutoShop with this tools sometimes make this for free.

Hope this helps.
