    Is it an aerial view of the car being displayed on the dash, i.e. check control?

    Then you have a problem with one of the lighting or door circuits. What bit is highlighted?

    nothing is highlighted its just the shape of the car. i know when it lets me know a bulb is out for example but there is no warning indicator as to why the shape is on. all i get is a bong and the light stays on.

    Have you checked the high level brake light and the number plate lights also?
