I have the orange light (triangle with an exclamation mark in the middle) showing on my dashboard.
I don't have the manual to hand, what does this light signify, is it something to be worried about please?
:confused:

This is the ASR/ESP warning light. Have you disconnected the battery recently?

also check that the switch to shut the system off hasnt been accidentally pressed. although this should re-set when the ignition is switched off (unless the switch has gone faulty and is constantly switching the traction control system off!)
