I have a warning light that has come on. It is an illuminated image of the vehicle from directly above, with 6 lines coming from what i think is the back of the vehicle - the 6 lines illustrating, i assume, the rear lights. Can you assist and tell me why this has come on? Many thanks

The vehicle needs to be towed to a qualified repair shop where it can be properly diagnosed and inspected. If the red brake light comes on while driving and stays illuminated, the vehicle should be pulled to the side of the road and towed to a qualified repair shop.

The PCM controls the operation of the charging system warning indicator in the instrument cluster. The PCM is therefore responsible for turning the warning indicator off after the engine is started and illuminating it under fault conditions (when the generator is not generating the correct amount of current with the engine running). The warning indicator will also be illuminated by the PCM at key ON engine OFF, and stall conditions. Charging System Warning Indicator
The instrument cluster receives the charging system status from the PCM over the SCP or CAN communication network. The PCM controls the charging system and the charging system warning indicator.
