That is the low tire pressure light. Check the tire pressure.

Should say in the owners manual under "warning lamps". Sounds like a tire pressure monitor though......

I have a KIA Sportagae 2006. A light lit up on my dashboard which is yellow, looks like a horseshoe and has an explanation point in the middle. What does that mean?

I believe the exclamation point inside the lines(which are supposed to be a tire symbol) is a low tire pressure warning indicator. Check all tire pressures, as a drop of just 10% will set the lamp off. It will take up to 5 minutes with the car running for the lamp to shut off after filling tires. Hope this helps.

GOOD LUCK i hope this is of help

Looks like horseshoe with exclamation point

That usually means you have a tire or tires with low air pressure. Check the air pressure in all of your tires and make sure that they are at no more than the maximum psi rated on the sidewall of each tire. If the car has not been driven for an extended period of time, us the cold psi as your max. If the car has been driven for an hour or more, use the hot psi number. It it very important to understand these numbers because as the air heats up inside the tire, it expands increasing the pressure and as it cools down, it contracts to a lower pressure. Tires slowly lose air pressure over time which is normal but it can get down low enough to trigger the sensor and the light even the tire may be fine. Your tires should be within + or - 1 to 2 psi of each other and at or near the rated tire psi. If any or all are lower than the others, you should have them checked for damage or a puncture by a nail, screw, etc. A faulty sensor can also set the warning light which should be replaced and calibrated by a certified technician.

Looks like horseshoe with exclamation point

Indicates your tire pressure is less then 32 psi on one or more of your tires. Once you have all your tire pressure at 32 PSI, the car's TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) will recalibrate and reset. Once reset the light should go off if all tire pressure are the same.

My Kia Spectra just had a light come on. It looks

If it looks like exclamation point with two parenthesis on each side that is that you either have a low tire pressure or a flat tire. Take it to place so they can check your tires. Good luck.

Warning light --Upside down horseshoe with exclamation point

It should be letting you know that you have a tire pressure problem. If you still have the owners manual read it. It will explain what to do, what to look for and how to reset the light if need be.
