The problem is the dashboard circuit board. Some connections burn up over time. Happened twice alerady, and this week again. This time light oil if flashing, buzzer buzzing, and other warning lights going crazy. Take out the dashboard and pc board. On the back, look for darkened resins spots.These are indications of intense heat. Gently scrape off and examine wire trace under with a magnifying lens. Look for tine break. Solder a wire around the break. See attached picture. I had to make two such fixes already and I going to look for more to try to fix my current problem.
Here's a list of your dash lights and their meanings
1. Door-ajar warning light

Could be the motor-management-warning light, but I guess it's the break-warning light. There might be too little breaking-fluid left in the lines ... A boardcomputer-readout should clarify this.
Otherwise, try parking on an ascending road with the nose pointing up, hit the hand-break and wait like 2 minutes; the light should come on. You might wanna retry it with the car's nose pointing downwards as well ... If so, definitely the breaking-fluid, otherwise probably not ;)
In any case - flashing warning light are never ok, so when you see it again and you're sure it's not just the ABS/ESP warning light, go and have your boardcomputer read-out, since it should contain useful errorcodes ..
