That is the check engine light and it is to alert you that the computer has identified a fault in one of the car's systems. I suggest taking the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. Getting the codes will show what the computer noted so appropriate action can be taken to address problems/potential problems. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

How to get rid of yellow engine symbol on dashboard?


Will need to have it daignosed by a professional and perform repair that is needed.
The "check engine" light is on because of a problem that the computer has sensed within the sensors of a faulty circuit.

The triangle is on because the problem is also effecting other modules within the vehicle.

Perform diagnostics to determine problem and repair problem..

What is the warning light that I have coming on - it is red circle with a triangle in the middle. Engine slows down when it lights up.


The DSC warning light is similar to the one you mention. As I do not know the year or model I am guessing it is the one. It has to do with dynamic stability control and needs BMW diagnostics to analyze and repair.

Alrite mate, there is a warning light on my dash its a warinig triangle with a circle round it, wot could be cuasing this its on a mk4 golf x reg


Not sure from your description but this sounds like your traction warning light (left side of the warning light panel, it looks like a triangle with an arrow going round it in a circle), it normally comes on when you have either turned the traction control off via the button on the dash or if its wet on the road. It can also be caused by cornering too fast.

A warning light appear with my hibrid prius


I have same engine problem. Triangle signal pop up after I try to start my Prius with a still wet air filter to the car . The engine just run for less than 30 sec. and stopped with the triangle signe pop up. I think this sign will pop up whenever the engine detect certain major function failure. For my case, it was due to retricted air supply to the engine. I have tried Lovebytes suggestion and the triangle sign disappeared with a dry clean filter. My Prius is running good now. This warnig sign may have other implications. Once you try this method and sign still come on. You need to have your car check by garage.
Bellow attach is the answer from Lovebites
