    I thought number 10 was engine issues of some kind. The manual tells you to stop the car immediately and not continue driving.

    That looks like the handbrake light plus another light to the left of it covered with a piece of tape!

    Sorry to the OP, but it looks like the classic 'obscure a warning light to get it through the mot or sell the car'

    agreed with above, looks like an airbag fault that someone's tried to hide. Seen and done it a few times when I've removed steering wheels with airbags before. I'd always remove it before I sold it so it would be down to new owner to sort

    Tape under there? Seems very sketchy.
