Dash lights - exclamation mark

5 posts in this topic

Started the car this morning and the yellow exclamation mark next to the parking brake light didn’t turn off. 
 

I don’t have a manual, unfortunately. What is this light meant to indicate? I think it is the one that flashes when traction control kicks in, which would lead to ABS issues. I’m not overly concerned so long as the engineers didn’t decide to also include “no oil” in the list of things that turn that light on!

That indicates that the surface that you are on is slippery and is part of the traction control. This morning coming into town There was black ice and mine was on and off .

But it’s on solidly. If it’s traction control then it’s fine, just need to get it read with STAR. The list goes on.

IF it's on all the time and not loosing traction, maybe just a broken sensor or wire etc...?
