That is the brake pad wear indicator. Probably need to have your front brakes and the brake sensor replaced. Might be rear brakes, but they don't wear out as often.

Ther is a orange/yellow triangle light with an exclamation mar in the middle of the dash that came on after a low battery, what does it mean and can it be reset

James, I believe this is the indicator lamp for the Automatic Stability Control plus Traction/Dynamic Stability Control. If the lamp stays on after the car starts, the system is deactivated. This means that the system is malfunctioning or has been deactivated with the button. The button is above and to the left of the left cup holder and should turn the light off (ie: activate the system). If it doesn't, you probably have a malfunction and should consult a Service Tech. Hope this helps. Phil

How do I fix it and where is the problem

there must be a short in the electrical circuit board the is behind the speedo , probably caused by whatever caused the crack, you will need to remove the speedo unit and check the rear for signs of burning,corrosion , loose electronic parts etc , if all looks ok with the ignition on and engine running remove one bulb at a time and see if ALL lights go out , if so then whatever that particular bulb was for is the circuit on the speedo head at issue,you havent said what vehicle etc if it is pre 2000 this is proberly going to help you if POST 2000 then it may not as around then all manufactures where using LED's instead of bulbs so a new speedo unit would be required or taken to a auto electrician who is experienced in these type of intricate repairs

What To Do When : WIN appears on the dashboard of a Chery J11 SUV : Easy fix just a push of a button...Push the little button with the snowflake on it, it is to the left of the gear shift. This button allows the car to accelerate in 2nd gear in snow or icy conditions. It is also only to be used for this purpose any other use of this switch will burn the gear box out as the internal temperature will become critical fast.

No light on dashboard when i turn the headlights.problem occur after a instalation of a new radio sny

Below is the color code for your factory radio wires.
The problem you have is that the red wire with the black stripe has likely been shorted and the fuse burned. Take the radio out and find that wire. Make sure it is not being used and tape the end with electrical tape. If that wire was used to power the radio, change the radio power to use the yellow wire with the red stripe. Also make sure the red wire isn't getting pinched when you reinstall the radio. Find and replace the burned fuse and you should be OK. Please get back to me if you have more questions.

My left turn signal has stopped working. When I turn it on it clicks as normal, but about twice as fast as usual, but the arrow light by the speedometer does nothing. I have checked all the fuses and...

The faster clicking is the cars way of telling you that you have a burned out bulb in the system. So if both front and rear blinkers are good and the dash "bulb" is not, then you'll have to pull the speedo and replace bulb on the back. simple test would be to swap the right bulb into the left socket and vise versa and test!

Speedometer quit working, can't find where it attaches to the tranny. Also brake and ABS lights are on......

The ABS light can be just a sensor, or the speedo no working...follow the line of the speedo cable back from the gauge to the tranny is the fastest way...Normally its on the left side of tranny case.
