warning triangle

hi, i have a yellow warning triangle with ! in middle. no other info on dash. had around 4 months, now before i take it to fiat to get it checked out i just wanted to ask you guys.
its a duelogic 1.4 sport,
it comes on with one turn of key BUT if i press break and start it stays on but if i rev it to about 2500 brev or just a quick burst while from ignition off to engin start it doesn't come on.
so to recap

if from off and it neutral foot on break turn key engin start if i rev it aswell NO LIGHT ??????????

please help me guys im skint and hoping for a miricle.

Re: warning triangle

Could depend on type of lights if they have a different current rating the yellow triangle light show due to a less current drainage this is how they detect of the lights are blown as on my car I have led side lights and the triangle is constantly on due to this,, sometimes goes off but it could be that hope it helps

Re: warning triangle

Which clocks do you have on the car?
The one time that warning's come on on my car, it was accompanied by a text alert on the display to say what for.

Re: warning triangle

Get a diagnostic reader on it buddy.

Mine is always on because my hill holder is not available.

Got a service last Jan and they cleared it. No problemo. Bit of a headache and worry though.

Massive list of codes online when you get it read as well to point to what it will be.

Prepare for a whole history/host of electrical problems
