That is the low tire pressure warning. It can come on for several reasons. It commonly comes on in the fall as temperatures drop, the air in the tires contracts and the pressure drops. Check the air pressure and fill as needed. The tires also all need to be within 4 psi of each other.
Another common cause is that one or more tire sensor needs the battery replaced. This is not generally considered a DYI project because for most cars the tires must be removed from the rims. Finally the sensor can be damaged by hitting a curb or by adding chemicals into the tire used to seal small leaks.
As long as you check your tires visually prior to driving it is usually ok to wait to service the sensor for when you replace or rotate your tires.

Please keep in mind driving on a tire with low pressure can damage the tire, the rim or even cause delamination of the tread and cause an accident. The Firestone recall that involved Ford Explorers several years ago was from driving on tires with low pressure.

That is a low tire pressure indicator. You will want to check all your tires to see which is the problem tire. I've been told it only takes a 3 point drop in pressure to cause the light to come on.

Horse shoes light in dash broad


That is the TPMS warning (tire pressure monitor sensor). Check your tire pressure. The light/symbol is actually supposed to look like a flat tire.

What kind of vehicle is it? Check your owners manual, it should tell you in there what the warning lights mean. I have never seen a horse on my dashboard, but my truck is a '03.

That is a low tire light. Check the air pressure in your tires and make sure they are all the same. After properly inflating the tires, consult your owners manual on how to reset the light.
