    I have a red warning light on the petrol indicator...No not amber for
    nearly empty thats on the right..
    This is red looks like a cassarole pot and heat coming off
    Even my peugeot dealer has no idea wot it is..
    I may not know nothing about cars but I know a red warning light is
    telling my some thing..
    wot is it ???
    The car is running lovely apart from this light..but its due for an
    MOT next week and want to be prepared for the worse.

    Thank you

    I'm guessing here, but going by your description, could it be water
    temperature.

    If its anything like the toyota one, that cassarole pot is your catalytic
    converter, and the warning light is 'cos its too hot- meaning either dead or
    dying cat, unless you have a faulty sensor. Could be something completely
    different on the pug tho, but the description sounds the same.

    It just shows you how useless some peugeot dealers are if they can't even
    tell you what it is.

    I find most dealers of most companies have no idea whatsoever of anything
    other than brake pad checks, and even then some still dont.

    Useful link Dougie. Thanks I'll file that away

    I guess the nearest thing to the OP description is the Overheating cat
    symbol.
    Sadly this OP has not followed up on her own posting to respond to others
    trying to help!!
    (as often seems to happen)
