Hello, this is most likely to due with a secondary cooling system pump for the hybrid part of the engine, the red triangle is a warning lamp that when it turns on, it indicates a fault of course and puts it into a limited power mode. There are a couple of other possible issues with this lamp being on. It depends on what code is stored. Here is a TSB for an issue with the throttle body for this code. It should be be taken to a dealer to verify what codes are stored and the appropriate repairs made. One repair might still be covered under an open recall campaign if not already done.
