I think this is a anti-theft mode and that is why your car is not starting. You might have to have a dealer look at it to unlock your computer

I have a 2002 suzuki liana what does the warning symbol which shows a car with a padlock on three left side of it. Was driving on motorway car judder ed and lost power and stopped struggled to start it...


open glove box, read operators guide, see true name for that
warning lamp, icon, my guess, is IMMO, does car
have IMMObilizer option? if yes, and its light is on, then THAT
is the cause.
the padlock warnings. vary by country. (laws)

so engine is now stalled?
say stalled, 0 zero RPM of engine is stalled
and will not restart and run, correct?
and the pad lock is still on,,
correct?

if yes, then try the other key FOB< that came with car, (by its self)
does this cure the problem. with IMMO.?
never have just one key or this is the results. (will happen)
why not post a photo of the lamp, so helpers dont need to guess.
and country, the lamps are differently marked in different countries, or are USA marked.
no country stated.
ours is called Aerio, In USA, where is yours.?
no country no joy!

but regardless of that, the operators guide is clear, lost that. ?

What does the Dash board triangle "!" warning light mean and how do I reset it?


could mean anything from your windshield washer fluid is low to a bulb is out on the car..im pretty sure its just a warning light, u have to start up the power in the car (ACC) but not actually turning the engine..then use the button on the end of the blinker wand to access the "check control" this should tell you whats up

A red light on the dash board


The warning lights should be listed in your owners manual. It could be a warning for one of the gauges, or engine/transmission problems.
They are more common on Toyota Prius.

the car with a padlock symbol means security system,,,you either have a bad ignition switch causing this issue and or a passlock housing,,,sounds like a normal problem,,,when the ignition switch/passlock housing goes bad it can work sometimes and not others,but it will cuase the car not to start,, i bet there are codes stored in the computer,,you are gonna need to take it to the dealer,,
