Your "check engine" indicator is on. You should have a mechanic check for diagnostic codes to identify the problem

SOURCE: Yellow dashboard light on in shape of an engine

It is the check engine light, the computer has detected a fault, and has stored it in memory.
The vehicle needs to be connected to an OBDII handset to read the codes. If you live in the US, take it to any Auto Zone store and they will read off the codes for you, once you have the codes, you are on your way to finding the problem. This may be possible at other major auto parts stores but you will have to call your local store to confirm.

Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: what does my dashboard light mean, orange shaped like an engine

that would be your check engine light you will need to go to the dealer or a garage that has a scanner to read the code stored in the car computer . your car is now running in safe mode, which is not optimum performance.

The orange light is probably the pads wear indicator showing that the pads are worn out and the cutting out probably you need your car serviced and tune.

This sounds like your "check engine" light. Best bet is to take it to your mechanic where they should have the right diagnostic tools to find where the problem is. - Neil
