My dashboard light of a cog with exclamation mark in has come on what does it mean

This dashboard symbol may illuminate red or yellow / amber on the Ford Transit / Connect. A cog with an exclamation mark inside indicates a malfunction with the powertrain, a sensor or software fault. A malfunction with the powertrain may see the vehicle lose a certain amount of power, but will continue to run. If light flashes whilst driving, avoid heavy acceleration or deceleration and gently reduce speed. Symbol may illuminate with the engine warning light MIL -(see below). If both lights illuminate together, a continual reduction in power is likely, possibly followed by the turning off. Have vehicle checked by a Ford technician immediately

Hi I have a 56 plate 1.8 tdci, I keep getting a warning light coming on the rev counter side. It is like a cog, with and exclamation mark in the middle, any ideas on what this could be...

Hello chris...that light is a warning light telling you the ECU has detected a malfunction in the computer controlled mangement system. It could be any number of reasons, some more serious than others. You should have your vehicled scanned for codes. Even if the light has gone off, it has probably stored a code in the memory. With this newer system Ford is using, these store codes can cause more codes to set. So don't neglect getting it checked out for too long.
Good luck & i hope this helps.

That would be your tire pressure indacator light. Check your tire pressure and adjust accordingly. the tire pressure the factory reccomends for the car is located on a sticker, usualy on the lower driver's door, around the door latch.
