It could be the low oil pressure warning light. That light looks like an oil can with one drip of oil on the tip. If that is the light it is telling you the oil pressure in the engine is low. You might want to check with a dealer to make sure if you don't have an owners manual.
You can reset this fault code using the buttons on your dash - you don't need a dealer to do this. As you already know, you need to replace your pads and the brake wear sensor - this is a sacrifical item. Once this is done, do the following:- Using the buttons on your dash - there are 2 - one on the LHS (Trip reset) and one on the RHS (In between Tacho and temp gauge)
*Press and hold Right button and turn ignition to first position (I or Accessory)Display should show "Check Control OK" then a short time later "Test Nr.01"*Press the Left button and you should see the car info in the display. Add the last FIVE digits of the car identity number together (NOT all 6!) to get a unique ID for your car.*Press the Right button repeatedly until you see "Test Nr.19"*Press and hold the Left button until you see the number matching the unique ID you calculated, then release.*Press the Right button to select this.*Press the Left button repeatedly until you see "Test Nr.21" - Reset All Defect Codes*Press Right button to reset the codes.Done!
If the lamps and bulbs are ok I would initially suspect the hazard warning light switch, then the indicator switch, the multiway connectors and then the wiring.
There is generally only one fuse for the indicators and as one side is working it can be assumed power is reaching the indicator circuit.
It's similar, but not identical to the standard brake warning light (these usually have two circling arrows, one on each side). Check your brakes. The park brake may be on, or there is a fault in the brake system.
I think it's time for a rule requiring warning indicators to have a printed label as well as an icon. Too many people have trouble figuring out the hieroglyphics, especially when they don't follow a standard. Even if you don't read the language, you can look up the word on Babelfish. You can't do that with an icon.
Yhe indicator that you are seeing is most likely a charging system light (alternator). It could be other things like a brake warning lamp, but I don't know what king of car you are talking about, so I have no way to look it up for you.
In any case, YELLOW or AMBER lights on the dash mean that you should use caution while driving and get the car checked as soon as it is convinient for you. On the other hand, RED warning lamps mean STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE until you have resolved the cause of the light coming on (unless you like being stranded - or worse!).
Sit in the driver's seat. Put your right hand on your right knee. Put your right hand on the dash/kick plate surrounding the steering column...run your hand down to the bottom of the kick plate. Reach up and under at that point...it's right there. You don't have to remove the kick plate to use the OBD port, but it helps you find it easier.
