Thats your check engine light.
Depending on the problem it could be a "no BiG deal" or a real BIG deal.
go to autozone and they can check to see what the error codes are that may help identify the problem.

Good Luck

Is it safe to drive whilst the yellow engine symbol is on the dashboard?


If it is the check engine light, Yellow light that looks like a engine, or may say "Check engine", Yes, it is safe to drive until you can get it checked. As long as the vehicle is driving normal. If the light starts flashing, DO NOT DRIVE it. A flashing check engine light means a misfire and could cause a fire due to raw fuel going down the exhaust into the cat converters.

Sign of car with key warning light on dash


Here is a fix >

Security and Immobilizer System Indicator Symbols Symbols & Tell-tales
engine_immobilizer.gifsecurity_indicator_symbol.gifThese are Security and/or Immobilizer System Indicator symbols used by manufacturers. One of these symbols lights momentarily to indicate that the ignition switch is locked and will need the proper transponder-equipped key to re-start. The vehicle is immobilized otherwise. Green symbols will flash when the vehicle is immobilized.
lock.gifIf the symbol is visible when the vehicle is on, it indicates a malfunction in the security system. If the engine does not start with the correct key, and the security indicator remains on, the system may have a malfunction. You will need to contact your dealer in either case.
Keep the Symbol meanings with you!

2003 beetle a orange symbol came up on the dash and has a lighting bolt going into a shape like an engine,wont go away what dose this mean thanks


That light means that there is a trouble code currently on your cars computer or (OBD) On Board Diagnostic system . If you go to Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts, they will scan it for free, and erase it if its something simple. IF its something important, they should be able to give you SOME insight, but I would post back here with the trouble code number for better assistance. Thanks.

A flashing orange symbol shows up on dash panel and I don't know what it is-\r\n--can u show me some examples so that I may know what it means? 2000Dodge Intrepid


I don't have any pictures but if it's flashing it's probably the check engine light (some vehicles show this as a symbol instead of the words). If it is and it's flashing, that indicates the engine is missfiring and could potentially damage the catalytic converters. A diagram of all the warning lights is shown in the owners manual with a nice description
