IT'S A RAVE IN YOUR CAR! AWESOME!!!!That's the battery charge indicator - a car battery looks like a box. Might be time to put a meter on the battery to figure out what's going on. Red isn't necessarily bad, but it does indicate the battery isn't acting right. It may simply be time to add water, tighten down the cable, or actually purchase a new battery. But so long as the car starts, you're probably OK.

There should be a small slot next to that box.Insert your ignition key in that slot and the box will go back to green.RED means maintenance required.Check the basic stuff,oil level,coolant level,brake reservoir level etc.When the oil is changed,if the box is red,put your key in the slot and re-set it.The owners manual is available from dealer for about $35.I'm not sure which warning light you are referring to(yellow)it could be oil level,the battery indicator light is red.An owners manual is a plus,it answers a lot of questions not found in the Chiltons manual.Get one.
