Usually means that there is a problem with your braking system. Note that brake fluid is HIGHLY TOXIC so please be careful when handling it. Check the brake fluid level in the engine bay brake fluid reservoir to ensure that its upper level falls between the MIN / MAX marks. If it is below the MIN level in the try topping it up to the MAX mark with the appropriate rating of brake fluid, but as there may be air in the braking system ideally you should arrange for the car to be transported to a garage to have your braking system checked and the brakes bled. There may be a hydraulic fluid leak in your braking system somewhere along its length (park the car on a dry level parking area and look to see if any 'wet' marks appear on the tarmac - this is a distinct possibility if the brake fluid level in the reservoir is lower than the MIN level. Look for unexpected wetness on (a) the inside of the road wheels, or brake cylinders (any wetness found could indicate damaged seals in the brake calipers or cylinders) and (b) along the length of the brake pipes and at any of the junctions of the Master Cylinder.

That is a warning of some type. Looks like emergency brake is on, or if it is a high end car, it is telling you your pads are worn.

Exclamation light mean


It depends on which warning light you are talking about.
One that has the exclamation mark in the center with a tire around it is for low tire pressure or a problem with the ABS brake system.
The symbols are also in your owners manual.

What does the warning light (an exclamation mark with 3 wavy lines underneath) mean?


The owner's manual should have a key to all the dash warning lights, but i'm just going to guess it has something to do with an electronic traction control system.

Hope this helps,

A warning light that looks like a red cog with exclamation mark


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE LOW TIRE PRESSURE WARNING LIGHT. CHECK YOUR TIRE PRESSURE IF IT IS LOW ADD AIR THIS SHOULD ALLOW THE LIGHT T GO OFF. ALSO, CHECK YOUR OWNERS MANUAL FOR AN EXPLAINATION OF WARNING LIGHTS.
