Hi thereJust looked in mine manual and the lightning bolt in half circles is your electronic Throttle control light and also the yellow vehicle with wavy lines underneath is your digital Stability regime indicator light/ Traction regulate System light. There may have actually just to be an electric glitch the sorted chin out. There is no diagnostic codes that is the best I can do to aid you.

As has actually been recommended above, have the battery fill tested. It may seem fine however could have bad cells. Also pull the battery out and also find the manufactures date code. If it almost everywhere in the 3-5 year old range, replace it. You won"t remorse it come winter as it is simpler to adjust in warmth weather.
