Quoted from the Manual
"If it illuminates when driving, it indicates a malfunction of the engine
and powertrain system. Stop the vehicle as soon as safety as possible and
switch of the engine immediately. Have the engine checked by a expert."

According to Stoney's link it is the power train warning light:
Vehicles with a 5-speed manual transmission or Durashift EST
If the powertrain warning lamp comes on when the engine is running, this indicates a malfunction. The engine will continue to run but it will have limited power. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If the powertrain warning lamp flashes when the engine is running, this indicates a malfunction. Stop your vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. Have this checked before continuing your journey.
So something up with the gearbox I guess? Or does power train include the engine? Gearbox is working fine. Engine is due a dpf replacement but I've been ignoring that! Hope this isn't expensive, will get it checked out...

the powerttain light (cog with exclamation mark) will show even if engine is not on, just ignition. but as i say it sometimes doesn't show at all. its not in limited power or anything like that and car seems to drive normally and sounds normal.
what sort of faults could this light indicate?

my sister just had this fault a few weeks back on her 1.4tdci. i scanned it with the dealer tool as no DTC's were logged on the cluster and the scanner come back cylinder 2 shorted or grounded. turned out it was an error caused by a fuel sensor.
