    Please advise what this light means. Car is running fine and it's only coming on when first starting up. This is my son's vehicle so i'm getting only this pic. Screenshot_20181205-100654.jpeg

    As I zoom in it appears to only be a slippery road warning. It doesn't mean anything more with a Prius hopefully.

    Believe this is triggered near 40F.

    What year is the car? That light is explained in the owners manual.

    It's an 05. My 21 yo drives it but I maintain it. I overreacted to this symbol because vanity impedes me from wearing glasses, lol. It would be progress for us if he would actually open the manual but why do that when he has a sucker like me to message?

    I have a 2006 and I don’t even see that light in the owners manual. ;)

    Page 116 of a 2005 manual; It's an indicator for low temp environment.
    (Later models like my 2008 show a warning message on the display.) Screenshot_20181206-020832_OfficeSuite.jpeg
