    Had a light come up on the driver info display (not within the clocks) at the top where the media info usually is, never seen it before and its not listed in the book so wondered if anyone can help? It looks like the "fault in brake system" or the "brake light failure" symbol in as much as its an orange circle within what looks like two brackets except that theres no exclamation mark (brake system fault) or bulb symbol (brake light) just a blank circle??
    Any help would be great!

    It's your front brake pads warning sensor.

    Worth a quick visual check as sometimes the wires to the sensors break.
