What indicator are you referring to? Are you referring to the Check Engine light? If so, it is on because the ECU has detected a problem with the emissions system.

What control does the electronics in a toaster have?

Actualy none because there is no electronics involved. It is all electrical as a heater and thermo witching to stop the heating. The electronics in a toaster control the heating coils inside that actually toast the bread as well as the sensors that determine when the toast should be "popped". The dials on the side of most toasters control how long the toast has to stay down to be toasted.

What indicator on a Mercedes-Benz has a bulb with exclamation mark?

Just had the same question and found the answer... According to my manual for a Mercedes-Benz 560SL 1986 It is the Exterior light failure indicator lamp. "The light failure indicator comes on with the key in steering lock posion2 and will go out when the engine starts. If it comes on with the engine running, it indicates a a light failure. If an exterior light fails, the indicator will come on only when that light is switched on. If a brake or turn signal lights fails, the light failure indicator will come on when applying the brake or actuating the turn signal and stay on until the engine is turned off. CAUTION! If additional lighting equiment is installed (auxiliary headlamps ect.) to avoid damage to the failure indicator system, be certain to connect into the fuse before the failure indicator monitor unit.

Bad idle air control motor. ADDED: this could be the culprit but another thing to check is the condition of the battery.

You would have to hold your foot on the accelerator to keep vehicle running.

This is your "check engine light". It means there is a fault detected in the electronics of the engine (computer). Either there is a faulty sensor or some other problem which has tripped the light. You need to take the car to a shop, where they can connect it to an analyzer and read the code, to find the problem.
