"... the light represents the SRS, or supplemental restraint system, also known as the airbag system light. Since the primary restraint system in a vehicle is the seat belts, it only makes sense that the supplemental system is the airbag. The SRS system also tightens seat belts during a crash.

The SRS system is also referred to as a passive restraint system because the vehicle occupants do not need to do anything in order to activate the SRS system when the enabling criteria-speed and deceleration-are met. In contrast, seat belts are an active restraint system. The vehicle occupants must proactively latch each seat belt in order for the seat belt to do its job. Even automatic seat belt systems have a lap belt that must be manually latched.

Like all warning lights, when the vehicle is first started, the SRS light will illuminate for 1 to 5 seconds while the system goes through its self-test sequence. It should then go off. If it stays on, there is a fault in the system, which basically means that the SRS system is disabled and if a crash occurs, the airbags will not deploy and the seat belts will not tighten, which is why you should take your car to the shop immediately if the SRS light illuminates."

SOURCE: Hi, on my dashboard, the 2nd light is always on

You have an exterior light out, i.e. head light, tail light, fog lights, turn signal etc. check them all don't forget to check high beams. Yeah, don't know why the warning light it looks the way it does, kind of looks like a snowflake to me haha : ]

SOURCE: the symbol is a person

That would be your airbag light. Have the vehicle checked out if that light stays on since the airbag system has a malfunction somewhere within.

SOURCE: Chevy Cavalier 91 - Dashboard symbol "check" lite

Some fault code is stored in the PCM (computer); to know what is the problem, I suggest scanned the PCM with some scanner reader codes. Autozone or AutoShop with this tools sometimes make this for free.

Hope this helps.

It is the defective bulb warning light. It is a warning that a bulb has failed and needs to be replaced.There is a similar symbol that is an automatic transmission warning light but from your description I believe it is the bulb warning light. Hope this helps.

The dashboard warning lights on my 2000 Chevy Cavalier show a symbol - it seems like a cut view of a tire with T and C in the tire and a slash. What does it mean??

Sounds like the traction control is off.
Either from it being turned off by the driver or because of a problem with the system.
The symbols should be in the front section of your owners manual.

I don't know what the warning symbol means on my prius dashboard. I assume it means I need a new battery. Does anyone know?

Your owners manual should have the definition of the symbols.
The battery light usually means the alternator is not charging the engine battery, and the red symbol with the outline of a car next to it is a problem with the hybrid portion of the car.
I would strongly recommend you get it checked out by the dealer or someone experienced with hybrid cars.
