    That symbol is not on US Prius c models which are essentially the same but do have different instrument panels. An aqua owners manual would tell you but I would guess its the Maintenance Required light (oil change, etc) or maybe the Check Engine light (something is wrong). A local dealer or good mechanic could verify which one if you don’t have the manual. I looked for one but only found a Japanese language version.

    It requires a scanner tool to determine what a check engine light means. If it is continously flashing it is serious and should not be driven.

    Typical check engine issues:
    1. Bad O2 Sensor Needs to Be Replaced
    2. Loose, Damaged or Missing Gas Cap
    3. Bad Catalytic Converter
    4. Bad Mass Airflow Sensor Needs to Be Replaced

    5. Bad Spark Plugs or Spark Plug Wires

    agreed. likely a maintenance reminder for tire rotation and etc. should be in your owners manual
