Hi..there..

In answer to your question in regards ***** ***** safely..if the car seems to run and perform as it has done regardless of the warning light then it should be fine to drive...as you already gather you will require to have the fault codes retrived in order to find out what needs to be addressed here and what steps you need to take with a fix as that warning light can cover quite a big area of possible faults..I do hope this helps
