    Hi all

    My 124 220 has an amber light pretty much constantly lit up on the dash - it's the furthest one along on the left hand bank of lights next to the oil lamp. I've attached a pic if anyone can tell me what it is and if I need to worry please??

    Thanks!

    Left to right, brake, oil and coolant level, is the car over heating?

    Looks like a multi purpose warning light, possibly relates to handbrake on, brake wear or low brake fluid level. All brake related in any case.

    the round symbol with outer markings to left of oil is brake wear , it will come on when you brake, if really low it will be permantly on, and the symbol to the right of oil is temeprature, low on water

    After reading this again, the low brake fluid light would light up red. You say the light is amber, so I think you are talking about the low coolant warning to the right of the oil pressure light.

    Thanks all; you were indeed correct it was a lack of coolant - so thank goodness I checked when I did!! And more importantly thank goodness you guys knew what you were talking about... Much appreciated
