I wondered that myself. Turns out it's not a sun, it's a lightbulb. The answer I found is this: "Indicates that the side marker,parking, tail, license plate, instrument panel and headlights havebeen turned on ."
The "symbol" I believe you are talking about is actually the coolant level is low. It appears to be what looks to be like a crankcase filter and it glows orange on the lower left instrument cluster. I was puzzled on mine as well and finally figured it out.

If you don't have a manual, GET ONE! This is the check engine light (that's why it's shaped like an engine...) It could be anything from low gas pressure to a vacuum leak to burnt valves, anything that causes irregularities in the engine's operation will trigger this light. There are a dozen sensors… for different things (air, gas, spark, and all the things necessary to keep them balanced), and when one of them detects that something's out of whack, it lights this up. Your mechanic can get the code for what's wrong off the car's computer, or you can buy an OBDII (On Board Diagnostic) tool yourself and read the codes. Caution; some conditions will WRECK YOUR ENGINE if you drive with them unrepaired for too long! (MORE)

My dad says the light is the door ajar light. Turn on the car, and open and close all of the doors and trunk a few times while monitoring the light to see if it goes off. If it doesn't, then take it to a shop cause you have a problem with one of the switches.

Read your owners manual if you have one. Red light is normally a warning of low oil pressure. SRS is an indication something is wrong with the air bag system. Check Engine Light means there is a problem with the emissions system. Maintenance Required means some scheduled maintenance is required, nor…mally an oil/filter change. Orange or red light can mean engine is overheating. Can also be a gauge with a thermometer for engine temperature. Charging gauge tells you if the alternator is charging your battery. TC or TCS or ETC stands for Traction Control. If the light is on there is a problem or the traction control is turned off. OD stands for overdrive. (MORE)
That is most likely the Check Engine Light. In most usual cases, it's just a faulty sensor you need to replace. Any dealer of your brand of vehicle has code readers for these lights and could tell you what sensor is faulty. Beware, they can be costly though. Anything computer is. I believe you would… not pass inspection if this was not fixed. Now if the Service Vehicle Soon light came on, stop driving it, you'd have a major issue that could kill the engine. (MORE)
It is the Check Engine light. It comes on when the ECU detects a problem with the emissions system. Can be as simple as a loose gas cap or can be serious. Have the ECU scanned.
