    Default Warning Symbol ????

    Just drove back about 15miles from the Metro Centre an hour ago & a warning symbol came up on the dash half way home, it was a circle with 3 curved marks on either side of the circle but nothing inside the circle at all. unfortunately i don't have a handbook but i've just downloaded one & it looks similar to the ABS warning symbol but without the 'ABS' inside.....any idea what it is ??

    Cheers

    Bally, this sounds like the Brake Pad Wear Indicator symbol

    Front disc brake pads worn down to minimum thickness. You will need to check this immediately and have them replaced.

    It is indeed the brake pad wear indicator, front left wheel is the only monitored corner. I wonder if it also is the warning light for brake fluid level too?

    They need inspecting soon, but you've probably still got a few thousand miles left before you get metal to metal contact (depending on your normal pad wear rate of course)

    Ste, Brake fluid warning is the 'handbrake on' control lamp on the dash which should go out when you release the handbrake. Typically if illuminated when handbrake is off, check brake fluid level.
