Sorry, other expert winner the chat about your problem. This light shows operational status of traction control system. If it is constantly lit when engine is running, this means that traction control system is off. If the light flashes during driving, it means the loss of traction at the wheels, and traction control system is operating- decreasing engine torque to stop exessive wheelspin.
Hope this help.

Its a red triangle with explanation point inside on my 2014 jaguar portfolio what that mean


This is the master warning light. It is a signal that some thing needs checking on the vehicle. Are there any other lights or messages on the dashboard? The fault can be something as simple as a door not closed properly to something more serious. Please comment with more information if you have any and I'll try and give you a more accurate answer.

Why does my darango shut off while driving?


If it's an exclamation point inside a triangle, it's called a master warning symbol. This is the Master Warning Light symbol. If this light is on, there will likely be text displayed as well on the instrument panel, or another warning light. Look for text in particular. It could very well point out something as serious as low oil pressure. If the engine is not running, you can't very well check your gauges, but you may have lost all oil pressure or overheated the engine. Recommend you consult a mechanic familiar with your model.

Prius 2005 triangle indication


The Triangle indication:
Description: MASTER WARNING LIGHT.
The battery ECU has a self-diagnosis system. If the computer, High Voltage (HV) battery system or the components are not working properly, the ECU carries out a diagnosis to detect the malfunction, and illuminates the master warning light in the combination meter together with the HV system warning indicator on the multi information display.
NOTE:
The master warning light illuminates when the HV battery system fails and it blinks when in inspection mode.

I have a red triangle with ! inside it and red car with ! in the middle of it , so please i want to know this error in Toyota Prius 2008


This the hybrid master warning light, which means the system has detected a malfunction, there are many causes that turn the light on, there are about 24 computers involved, the best advise I can come up with is that you have the toyota dealer check this and diagnose it, this may also still be under the powertrain or hybrid vehicle warranty

I have a warning light - a circle with a exclaimation mark in the center, what does this mean


this one normally indicates a brake warning lamp.......the first thing i would check is that the brake fluid level is ok in the master cylinder. as your brake pads wear out, they will draw fluid from the master cylinder, this is normal, and as lond as you dont have any abnormal noises then just top up the fluid with NEW brake fluid

Car suddenly died


This most likely is not the cause of the car failing unless it is caused by a bigger electrical problem.

The yellow triangle with an "!" point in the center is the ASR/EDL indicator, Anti Slip Regulator. If it flashes while driving it just means the anti-slip has been activated. It will stay lit if the system has been manually switched off or if it is malfunctioning. A malfunction would not affect the car's running other than you have no anti slip function. This is an option.
