On mine i had a circle with some lines around it and it was a brake pad indicator, meaning that the car has determined that you need to replace your brake pads. I have included a link to a picture. your dash may not look like this, but the orange light on the top left is the brake pad indicator light. Hope this helps!

Sounds like a brake system warning light. The will be a problem with the brake system and will need to be checked as soon as pos. Could be low fluid, or a fluid leak.

Got a light on by my spedo and dont no what it for it is a orange triangle with a ! mark in it and an arrow arawnd it all orange it is next to the abs light on my vw passat please can u help me anna


I'm guessing you do not have an owners manual to check! If not I think it is the ESP warning light which is linked to abs, I'm sure this will need vw diagnostic machine to fix
