The light with a key Is the Immobilizer Malfunction Indicator light (MIL). It should go out once the vehicle has been started. It would illuminate and possibly flash if the system were blocking the running of the vehicle. I assume this is a non-US specification vehicle as Immobilizer was not utilized in the US until 2001.
The transmission range selector display (automatic transmission only) should be a horizontal row of lights P, R, N, D, 3, 2 to the right of the speedometer, between the speedometer and the accessory gauges. This is on a left hand drive vehicle (US). The bulbs on the circuit board have likely failed. Also, it is common for the ambient temperature display above the center information display to fail. Both circuit boards can be removed and the bulbs replaced (soldered in) if you go to an electronics store and match the bulbs. This is NOT a simple procedure, but replacement circuit boards retail for about $130 US.
