Unknown Warning light

Looking for a little help here. I have a 2004 Damon Escaper LX400 and just recently a warning light came on - picture attached. I went through all of my books, called freightliner, googled it and the only thing I can find is for a Volkswagon Jetta as a low brake pad warning. I had my pads/ shoes checked at they are at 90% (like new). Any feedback would be appreciated

Looks like a brake symbol, but that should be red. My guess (only a guess) is that since it is yellow, something malfunctioned in the ABS.

I have an ABS light (that's not lit) so I don't think its that. This is frustrating cause we are heading out next weekend and would like to figure it out before we leave

I have a sprinter, your light is SIMILAR to the light I have that is for a bulb out. It's a long shot but check all vehicle related bulbs

Unknown Warning light

Warning brake pads are worn.

It does appear to be a brake warning light of some sort. You say you just had your brakes checked. Was the light on prior to that? If not, perhaps the guys that did the work did not adjust something correctly (a sensor, for example) or an electrical connection has come undone or is malfunctioning. If it happened AFTER the brake inspection, that's where I would look. Just my 2 cents....

Please let us know what you find out to be the culprit. Thanks!

Not really sure what is happening. We headed out for a trip 4 weeks ago and on the way back the light would flicker on, then off. After an hour or so it just stayed on. I just had a brake inspection cause I too saw the FixIt post on the volkswagon warning light for low pads and all pads and shoes are at approx. 90% left. There are no sensors or wiring to the calipers or shoes so unless there is something that goes to a air brake soliniod/ relay or something ???? So frustrating:$

On a VW, that symbol is the front brake pads are worn to the limit. I once installed a set of pads that didn't have the wear indicator sensor and I had to put a jumper into the plug to turn the light out. Look for a wire or plug connector at the front brakes. If the pads had been installed without sensors, the wire could have been left dangling and got torn away by road debris.

All warning symbols with a circle and 2 arcs are for brakes, brake fluid, parking brake, etc. The six arc segments around the circle is VW brake pad wear. I'm surprised Freightliner couldn't tell you what it means if they built the chassis. You might also check with Thor.

Well the dash manufacturer would know for sure

But the only thing on my motor home that even LOOKS like that is the parking brake,, My Parking brake is an exclamation point (!) but that is the shape of a parking brake.

Could also be the pads or.. Who knows.
Home is where I park it!

I would not be 100% but it is a ABS warning light that shows the ABS is not working as it should. There are sensors on both front wheels and rear or only one in rear two up front.

Mystery solved!!! I ended up taking the tires off and TADA!!!! there are sensors imbedded in the front pad. I don't understand why two different Freightliner dealership couldn't tell me this? One even insisted that they do not have pad sensors on their units.... Hmm, I think what happened is when the previous owner had the pads replaced, the mechanic "stuffed" the wires where ever cause I found 3 wear makes that was shorting out. $520.00 in parts to replace :(
