I've been looking around and  I believe that one is the Malfunction indicator Light. It's not really specific but I would have some check the fault codes on your car if it's on. This light it on the right side, bottom row second from the right.

Possible traction control turned off. try some switches to the right of the steering wheel and see if it comes on/off.

Purchased a 2005 Hyundai but do not have an owner's manual. A light has stayed on but I do not recognize what it is for (e.g. oil, brake, or what?) I need a manual to identify this problem and others...

maybe the tpms light tire pressure monitor system in my tiburon that was the only light i did not recognize and i looked it up and come to find out that was it the TPMS light put the same amount of air in your tires and see if it goes off. but if you could write back and explain what the light looks like cant really answer it if i dont know what it looks like. but that was my expierence

T reg renault megane.ABS light and serv light on dashboard are staying on,are the 2 linked or is it 2 seperate problems.can i still drive the car with both dashboard lights on.

All the computers on the car are linked together. The ABS can trigger the service light on some applications, ie speed sensors. You can still drive, but you wont have ABS, meaning if you brake hard enough or in gravel the tires can lock up and skid.

Green lights stays on, on dashboard

If you look in the owners manual it will identify the symbol on the light.
But by what you are describing it sound like a low coolant level light. You might want to check the antifreeze level.

Warning lights on dash, not sure what they mean

IDK about your car. But, the button on the gear shft is a turbo button. A S should illuminate on the dashboard. Mmmm makes the car go super fast!!! LOVE IT. and the next to my gear shift is a button of a Snow flake, I believe its for traction control. I could be wrong. I have a '99 Cadillac catera

I'm missing the owners manual and a yellow warning light came on this morning on the dashboard. It looks like a horse shoe with the open part facing up and an ! point in the middle of it. What does this...

That is usually a tire pressure sensor warning light telling you that your tire pressure is at an unsafe level or that a sensor is bad. Think of that symbol as a cutaway of a tire.

As for the owner manual, you can get a copy by registering at the Toyota Owner's Site. It is free.
