    That is the light that tells you the car has gone into limp home mode. It's the engine electronics, autobox (if fitted) and immobiliser fault light - if flashes and car won't start.

    The engine block light (used to have a lightening bolt through the middle of it) that usedto be the limp home light on older Vauxhalls is now the emmisions fault light.
