I have a 2004 that had the same problem. It sounds like the engine might be flooded. The best thing to do is to remove the fuse to the fuel pump. It will be listed under the fuse cover under the hood. Mine was a 20 amp but check to be sure. With the fuse removed, crank the engine for a minute to remove any fuel flooding the engine. Replace the fuse and crank the engine in 10 second intervals without touching the gas or you will reflood the engine. This process can sometimes take awhile and will drain your battery, so have it connected to an additional power source ( i.e. another car battery or jump box). When the car finally cranks over there will be a huge cloud of smoke so don't be alarmed when it happens. Lastly some words to the wise. This process CAN ruin your starter, but is essentially the same process that the dealership will you except that they will remove the spark plugs to drain the fuel and then charge you for new ones. If this process doesn't work then you probably need new spark plugs which is going to cost quite a bit. I was quoted upwards of $525 to fix this problem until I talked to a Mazda mechanic and found out how to do this myself. Just make sure that the engine is up to running temperature before turning the car off and you shouldn't encounter this problem again. I hope this helps you, and remember that if all else fails the dealer can fix it. It won't be cheap, but they will get it done.
I almost forgot, you HAVE to get the oil changed as soon as possible because there is probably gas in the oil now.

This is a common problem. I have a similar issue with my 92 Miata. I currently have a 10 code problem with my airbag.

the sign which is shown can you properly define it weather it is a brake sign or some thing or different without proper explanation no body would be able to solve your problem sir
you do one thing better confirm what sign it is or simply it is better you refer to your owner manual booklet for further clarification if still are confused than better to visit to nearest authorized workshop or service station.

It's the engine coolant level warning light, mine was coming on frequently but would go off again after a few miles, i was told my coolant level was good and that it was a sensor issue, 400 bucks to fix, but luckily my car was still under warranty so it was free.
