Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

Given your description, this light is for the catalytic converter on the vehicle..

This can be for overheating of the cat - and emission control warning of problems..

You will need the help of a garage with this as the next step is to have a diagnostic machine connected to the vehilces' OBD -diagnostic socket and this will come with the actual faults....

I would recommend the use of a dealer for this - or at least dealer level equipment which some garages have.. and then you can progress with this...

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...


Kind Rgds, MIKE
