This symbol is for worn brake pads. When the pads wear down the sensors make electrical contact with the disc rotor and the light comes on as the circuit is completed. Check out brake pads all round, inmost cases the pads at the front wear down first. Check symmetry of wear. The pads should wear symmetrically and evenly either side of the brake disc. If the pads are wearing on just one side of the disc check that the caliper body is not seized and that the brake guide pins are allowing freedom of movement. It is always a good idea to replace all the pads on one axle at the same time as this ensures even braking. Remember, after replacing pads to pump the brake pedal until stiff prior to moving off so that you can be sure that you can stop when you have to.

Hi i have an orange warning light on the but dont know waht it is i dont have a manual it I have a vw passet 2000 the light is a circle with 3 bracket like lines around it in the centre of the dashboard...


On mine i had a circle with some lines around it and it was a brake pad indicator, meaning that the car has determined that you need to replace your brake pads. I have included a link to a picture. your dash may not look like this, but the orange light on the top left is the brake pad indicator light. Hope this helps!
