    Is this the warning indication that one of the doors/boot/bonnet are open?
    Did it come on during driving?

    Can't find nothing on any site about this problem.
    The guy said their ain't nothing wrong with it, it did seem OK when test driving it, but I don't trust it with that light being on, told my brother he ain't buying it.

    It only ever lights up when a door/boot is open or one of the lights is out, as far as I am aware it is not a big issue, it will more than likely just mean a bulb needs replacing.

    Yeah what Jim said. It's nothing to worry about - however it could mean that it's previously been in a smash and it's not gone off (like mine lol)

    Do the interior lights work when you open the doors?

    And it would be worth checking the wiring loom at the boot hinge as it's common for causing electrical problems

    Yep, what Ronnie said
    Seen that come up intermittantly as registering the 3rd high level brake light as faulty.

    If it is a faulty bulb, there will be an indication on that "car dash light picture" on one of the sides.
